    A Physical Therapist that focuses primarily on modalities is not doing their job. If on top of that they rely heavily on expensive gym equipment they shouldn’t be calling themselves PT’s. Sadly there are many PT’s out there that give us a bad name and this doodle shows one of them – reminds me of my friends visit to a chiropractor, without the spine cracking. If you want to educate yourself about Physical Therapists, the true musculoskeletal experts and more then go to APTA.com

    Great doodle Barbara. Made me laugh and inspired me to write this short note.

    Dear Dr. Marcin,

    Ah, but what you don’t realize is that the PT outfit prescribed for us by our HMO primary doesn’t really have an enormous buzz saw. And, in fact, when we both obtained PT there, on more than one occasion, the most high-tech machine I was asked to use was an arm bike and the most high-tech machines Barbara was asked to use were balance bars, steps, and strips of rubber. I don’t believe that this place deserves the bad name you wish to bestow upon it; certainly our state-licensed Physical Therapist doesn’t rely heavily upon machinery. Do you use any “machines,” such as large, inflated balls, balance plates, rubber strips for isometrics, free weights, etc.? Do you do manual deep massage? Do you heat areas of inflammation with large mats heated in water? Do you prescribe home exercise? All of this has worked wonders for us and our aging muscles and joints.

    Jeff Broido,
    The Husband.
