How much human anatomy is a physical therapist required to know?
I’m really disappointed in my physical therapy. I was assigned to a certain therapist, but I really only saw him on my first visit. Since then he has relegated me to one or another of his interns and I have not seen the same one twice. There’s always somebody different each time I go. This necessitates explaining to each new intern what my injury and treatment regimen is. It’s like they don’t even look at my chart before I arrive. Also, the place where I go often over-books patients and can schedule up to 10 patients at one session. I don’t think that this is efficient for the therapist OR the patients. One woman patient I’ve seen there always brings her 4 kids who the proceed to run around the place and climb around on the therapy equipment like it was a playground. Nobody says anything to them.
The last time I was there, I told the intern that I was having discomfort in my instep. She looked at my arch. I said, "No, not my arch, my INSTEP." Then she looked at my sole. I finally said, "Do you know where the instep is?" She just looked confused. I am wondering how qualified these so-called "therapists" are?
