Frequently Asked Questions

What is Physical Therapy?2017-10-11T02:00:39+00:00

The practice of physical therapy is the integration of examination, history, analysis, and restoration of movement dysfunction. Physical Therapy is concerned with health promotion, and injury prevention. The goal is to develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability. The method of physical therapy sees full and functional movement as at the heart of what it means to be healthy.

What is a Physical Therapy Evaluation?2017-11-19T23:25:54+00:00

A physical therapist will initially conduct an interview of a patient’s medical history, and then go on to the physical examination. This examination is used to rule out serious problems, establish functional limitations, establish diagnosis, guide therapy, and establish a baseline for monitoring progress.

What is Physical Therapy Treatment?2017-11-19T23:27:34+00:00

Guided by the evaluation findings, the physical therapist will then develop and facilitate a plan of care. The physical therapist will consider functional progress; and include ongoing review and refinement to the treatment program. Patient education is a key aspect of all patient centered plans. Various methods will be used depending on the diagnosis. These may include neuromuscular re-education (facilitating muscles in a normal sequence) functional exercise (strength, motor control, stretching, and endurance), manual techniques (joint mobilization, soft tissue massage), and modalities (heat/cold therapy, iontophoresis, electrotherapy, and ultrasound). The therapist may even refer you to aquatic therapy based on your level of fitness at the beginning of treatment.

What is an Assessment?2017-11-19T23:27:58+00:00

This involves a 15 minute scheduled assessment where our staff can discuss your symptoms and determine if you are appropriate for further evaluation. The evaluation can be scheduled at the time of the assessment if further investigation is necessary. No instructions or treatment are given at this time. It is a free service to discuss what we can do to help you and the assessment provider is not responsible for any misinterpretation from the discussion.
