Can someone tell me what a good physical therapy session looks like? I went to one for my chronic upper back pain last year, and they just gave me 3 exercises each time I went and that was it. It felt silly to be paying so much money each visit just to be given 3 upper back exercises I could Google. In addition, I had felt like it made my back pain worse.

    You have to tell them if it hurts and that you’re not seeing progress since the program is not personalized for you. Simply ask if they have another approach in mind, if not, you’ll seek help somewhere else. It took me years to come to this conclusion and courage to speak up. Right now my PT works around my pain and stiffness in the thoracic spine. Every visit we switch things around if needed and I receive a manual or hands on treatment from her. Good luck!
