How do I know if I or someone I know needs Physical Therapy?

If two or more of the following questions are answered YES, you need a Physical Therapy Evaluation.
  • While walking around the house, do you need to hold on to furniture or walls?
  • Do you need help standing from a chair/couch?
  • Do you complain of pain in your back, gluteal region (buttocks)?
  • Do you lose your balance when transfering (i.e. sit <-> stand) or walking?
  • Do you need help with Activities of Daily Living (i.e. eating, bathing, dressing, grooming)?
  • Do you experience shortness of breath or have difficulty with breathing?
  • Are you insecure or unsafe with mobility?
  • Do you feel that your legs give way (buckle) or feel that they are weak?
  • Have you had a recent surgery involving the musculoskeletal (i.e. joint replacement) or cardiovascular system?
  • Do you have a neurological disorder (i.e. Parkinson's)?

If you determine, based on the above criteria, that you need a Physical Therapy consult, ask your Physician to provide you with a prescription authorizing a Physical Therapist of your choice to evaluate and treat your condition.
