help with physical therapy expectations

Currently having Physical Therapy for hip anteversion/knock knees and general postural issues; what kind of pain is it 'normal' and beneficial in the long run to feel? Only muscular or is it okay for PT to provoke the outside of knee pain that I want to fix as well? [more inside]

Seeing two physical therapists at once - is it OK?

I've been seeing a PT for 3 months who is covered entirely by insurance. They provide ultrasound, etc., but not much else. I want to see another PT to get better treatment and pay out of pocket. Would it be OK to continue seeing the insurance-covered PT for ultrasound and e-stem once a week and pay out of pocket to go to the other PT once a week? Would my insurance company frown on this if they found out?

It's big and it's standing at attention

Broken tibia & fibula, 3.5 months ago, clean snap. I got an intramedullary rod in the tibia, screws at the ankle and knee, and absolutely no recommendations for PT other than some exercises to do at home from the doctor. Everything else seems to have healed well enough, but - my big toe ain't movin', and it's stuck in permanent "up". [more inside]

Seeking physical therapist

Need recommendations for a great physical therapist in NYC that is good with hips. I have significant arthritis, despite a preventative major surgery (ganz osteotomy) last year I am "looking forward" to a hip replacement within the next 5 to 10 years. I am 33 and dance in a troupe. Having major trouble finding good therapy and massage that falls within my Aetna hmo. Don't worry about the insurance, I will check that out. Just give me recommendations, pls.

Tell me about PT

Desire to exercise + bad joints = ?

Desire to exercise + bad joints = ? . Should I try to find some kind of trainer or sports therapist? Should I look into some kind of machine (I'm considering rowing or eliptical), and if so what do I look for in quality machines? Should I just go to a gym for a few months, try some things on my own and see what feels good? [more inside]
