We see numerous patients who have already had physical therapy or other interventions at different locations. Not all physical therapy is the same. Different providers have different specialties and have different approaches to the same problem. Depending on the clinic they work at, they may different resources available to help them with them with the problem. Getting a second option is not a sign of disrespect to your original provider, but allows you to gather more information, can give you a different vantage point on an old problem, and can strengthen your belief/opinion on your current path you are on.
