How to find a good physical therapist

I'm looking for a good PT to supplement my home work. Any ideas on how to find a good one for disc herniation? My primary care physician sucks so shes not going to be a good source of info.

Cobra Stretch and Sciatic Pain

I have 0 problems doing the Cobra stretch (herniated lumbar disc with sciatic pain 1 year), but it doesn't seem to do a lot for me. I'm a pretty limber person and have always been that way. Is there a way I could tell if I'm doing the exercise right?
