Be wary of the facility where you don’t learn something new at each and every visit.

  • Self-care and home exercise instruction are essential for fast results.
  • Don’t waste time in your therapy visits and run out of insurance benefits before your goals are met.

Be wary of the facility that overuses “passive” treatments such as heat, ice, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation.

  • These treatments are helpful with certain conditions but typically should not be used early and weaned off quickly.
  • They should never be the main part of your program for any length of time.
