CONCORD, Calif., June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Game Ready®, the leader in active compression and cold therapy technology for injury treatment and post-operative recovery, today announced it is publishing a guide of criteria to follow and questions to ask when evaluating physical therapists. The checklist is available for free download at http://info.gameready.com/download-checklist-finding-the-right-physical-therapist.
Physical therapists (PTs) help patients manage pain and recover from injury or illness. Typically, the objective of physical therapy is for the patient to safely return to normal activity as quickly as possible. Therefore, selecting a PT is just like making any other significant health decision—ensuring a provider is qualified and brings relevant experience contributes to successful recovery. Game Ready's new guide presents several criteria to consider when choosing a physical therapist. Among the criteria explored:
- Credentials and education
- Treatment style
"Injuries often interfere with patients' daily activity, so a reasonably quick recovery is necessary to restore normal function and alleviate pain," says Craig Grabell, President and CEO of Game Ready. "A good physical therapist can help hasten that recovery. Comparing multiple PTs is easier if they respond to the same set of questions. Our checklist gives patients these important questions to ask as they evaluate physical therapists."
