No way. Not me. Count me out!!
To become a licensed physical therapist (or physiotherapist or massage therapist, for that matter) requires a specific knowledge and skill set that I do not possess.
What I can do is work WITH a physical therapist to ensure:
1) I fully understand the injury and its recovery and rehabilitation process.
2) That when it’s time for the client to transition back to me, that my program builds on the physical therapist’s; that our respective programs are the best for our client. For example, I’ve worked with many physiotherapists where this ongoing collaboration works beautifully for all involved.
Bottom line: This is important stuff we’re dealing with here; a person’s physical and mental well-being could suffer horribly and needlessly if treated incorrectly.
