Got the results from my shoulder MRI (w/ arthrogram); nothing’s torn, thank God. Diagnosis is bursitis. Received cortisone injection this morning. Dr said not to start PT until Friday at the earliest, even if it feels better before then. I’m starting next Monday, due to my schedule.
I wasn’t all that thrilled with the PT I had before, although I never had anything to judge it by since it was my first experience with PT. I didn’t get any real 1 on 1 attention, and my PT was a student (supposedly with the guidance of an experienced PT reviewing her).
I expressed my displeasure with that PT and facility with my Dr and she said she’s heard similar experiences from other patients who’ve been at that facility. I was referred to another PT that is supposed to focus on athletes and sports PT as opposed to PT to get through your day (reaching the coffee can on the top shelf, reaching for clothes in the dryer, etc.)
What specific questions would you ask a PT to make sure they understand that you want to get better so you can get back to being active, lifting, sports, etc.
Sorry for the rambling and potentially silly post, but I’m totally new to getting PT (aside from the bad experience). Any help will be appreciated.
