Physical Therapy Vs Personal Training
Guest Authored by Dr. Shaun T, PT, DPT
On the other hand, not all injuries are preventable and a physical therapist must be able to identify, treat, or refer to a more appropriate provider. For example, one of my clients complained of knee pain, but upon testing, it became apparent that the source of pain was actually his hip. I advised his family to seek medical attention to rule out a SCFE (slipped capital femoral epiphysis), a hip fracture that can present as “referred” groin or knee pain (think of arm pain when one is having a heart attack), and would require surgery to fix if confirmed. Through detailed movement analysis and an intimate knowledge of musculoskeletal injuries, physical therapists are best suited to help their clients function optimally and address existing injury.
