WHAT IS PHYSICAL THERAPY?
Physical therapy is a treatment approach that is designed to restore and enhance optimal physical function and mobility. Our therapists’ advanced training and specializations provide the needed skills to hone into the root cause and allow each treatment progression to be individualized. This conservative treatment approach often allows the patient to choose self-management of their diagnosis in lieu of surgery or other invasive approaches, and in some cases provides a helpful adjunct to these other procedures to provide maximum benefit.
Manual therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy in which therapists place pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints by using their hands to apply condition-specific placement, force and techniques.
Occupational therapists apply their specific knowledge to enable people to engage in activities of daily living that have personal meaning and value through therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
Depending on the reason for treatment, benefits of physical therapy include:
Pain management with reduced need for opioids
Improved mobility and movement
Recovery from injury or trauma
Recovery from stroke or paralysis
Management of age-related medical problems
INPATIENT VS OUTPATIENT
Inpatient rehabilitation generally refers to physician and therapy services you receive during a stay in a hospital. Outpatient rehabilitation refers to the services you receive when you are not admitted to the hospital, such as physician services and physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Outpatient physical therapy services mean the physical therapy services provided by public health agencies, service providers, and clinic rehabilitation agencies to outpatients. It provides evaluation and treatment of numerous physical conditions for all age groups.
