Looking for a Physical Therapist in Prairie Village, KS?

Prairie Village

If you’re suffering from pain, loss of strength or loss of mobility due to an injury or condition, you should find a physical therapist for treatment. Physical therapy is effective at helping reduce pain and restore mobility because of its focus on treating the musculoskeletal system.

The musculoskeletal system includes your bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons that help your body function. Treating this system can improve your body’s ability to support itself to heal, reduce pain and prevent similar conditions from recurring in the future.

If you’re ready to find a physical therapist to help you treat your pain, there are a few things to keep in mind first. SSOR wants you to get the help you need, so we put together this list to show you what to look for in a physical therapist. Refer to the points in this list when you’re exploring your physical therapy options.

What you need to look for in a physical therapy clinic

  1. Proper education — Physical therapists are supposed to undergo years of training and education before passing an exam to be certified to practice. They must complete a bachelor’s level of education and physical therapy graduate degree program before being allowed to take the certification exam.
  2. A good, clean facility — The clinic you’re interested in should be clean and stocked with modern, functioning equipment. This equipment may be vital to your treatment.
  3. Positive reviews — One of the best ways to find out if a clinic is worth your time is reading the online reviews. People are honest and unfiltered with their opinions online. If the reviews about a particular clinic are positive, then you can trust this clinic.
  4. Great patient skills — The team at any clinic you visit should be friendly and welcoming. You will likely need multiple treatment sessions, so you will want the clinic you choose to have staff that you are happy to see.
  5. Cooperation with insurance — Paying with insurance is a priority for many people. Make sure you talk with the staff at the clinic and your insurance provider about your insurance plan and if it covers physical therapy.
