Having a good rapport with a physiotherapist is the most important factor in determining the outcome of therapy.
The physiotherapist should have formal training and certification and be licensed in the state or country of practice. In general, the therapist should be able to describe the merits and drawbacks of different types of treatment, including the ones he or she doesn’t offer. The therapist should also let you know how he or she will monitor your progress.
These are not always easy questions to answer, and the therapist may not be able to answer all the questions appropriately.
By taking note of the therapist’s responses, you should get some sense of what the therapist is like and whether you will be able to establish a good working relationship, or not.
