REFERRING TO A PHYSICAL THERAPIST:
The client’s best interests at heart…
Anyone that moves poorly or is in pain is a good candidate for physical therapy. Although exercise our programs are tailored to the individual needs, there are times where intervention from a therapist becomes essential.
The bespoke programs are composed of corrective exercise strategies designed to improve movement patterns. Occasionally clients will not respond to these. As a personal trainer, you are faced with two options – work around the pain or refer to a physical therapist for further observation. To insist on accumulating strength on top of dysfunction can lead to a range of issues; muscle imbalances, compensatory movement patterns, and eventual injury.
