Self-Care is not designed to be a substitute for medical advice, or physical therapy treatment, for that matter. The essence of any good medical or physical therapy treatment is that it is based on a comprehensive evaluation, which includes an interview, a medical history, and appropriate objective tests. Treatments are planned based on the results of this initial evaluation, and treatments will vary from session to session based on an ongoing evaluation. We recommend that you see a qualified health care professional for an evaluation and a customized treatment plan, and use these tips to supplement and optimize your physical therapy sessions.
