Overview Of Our Physical Therapy Association

If you are currently suffering and pain, from a physical injury, you may need to visit our physical therapy clinic. We offer treatment options that can assist people who are injured from car accidents, falls, or inadvertently lifting heavy items. We can help you get back to normal, allowing you to recover your muscle strength, balance, and also your coordination. It can be difficult to recover from physical injuries without professional assistance. That is why our company provides the best physical therapy sessions in this area. Here is an overview of the different types of therapy that we provide.

What Is Physical Therapy?

This is an option that your physician may recommend depending upon the severity of your injuries. By referring us to you, we can help you with relieving pain, improving mobility, and preventing reoccurring injuries from getting worse. We can also assist in preventing any type of permanent disability, or allow you to avoid potential surgery. Rehabilitation is our specialty, especially for sports injuries, falls, and also helping those who have experienced a stroke. If you are currently managing any type of arthritis, heart disease, or diabetes, our exercises and therapy can assist you. Women that have recently given birth may need to recover and physical therapy is a great way to get back to normal.

What Will Our Physical Therapist Do For You?

As with most programs that require some type of personal trainer, physical therapy is no different. Each of our patients will be assigned a certified physical therapist that will walk you through the process. They can explain what the program is, how it will assist you, and help you with each and every exercise that we recommend. They are all fully licensed and will have degrees in physical therapy, to provide you with the best and most accurate information. Along the way, they will continue to evaluate your condition. Your exercise program can be modified to accommodate your growth and also your setbacks. Regardless of the injury that you sustained, we can provide you with a clear assessment of your current condition and how you can rehabilitate.

We also partner with national agencies and facilities about menus while patients are in therapy. For instance, The Wellington Agency, who has full time private chefs for hire in Miami, has been instrumental in developing many of our menus.

How The Process Works

When you become involved with our Association, we can assign a physical therapist to you. Initially, they will assess all of your needs and provide you with a proper examination. They will ask a series of questions regarding your symptoms, and what level of pain you happen to be in. They will then recommend everyday tasks that you will do at home, and assist you with exercises and stretches at the facility. As they continually diagnose and reevaluate your condition, you should start to see a noticeable difference. They will also administer tests to determine your progress. This will involve assessing how well you are moving around, how you bend, reach, and your ability to grasp. There will also be exercises involving climbing steps or simply walking. They will also monitor your heartbeat, your posture, and balance, and report all of this information to us to make sure we are on the right track.

Different Types Of Therapy Options We Offer

Initially, we are going to start with exercises and stretches that are designed to help you with your particular condition. At first, these will be very minimal in duration and we will begin to extend them as you start to improve. Massage, cold therapy, and heat therapy may also be administered. We can also provide ultrasound in order to ease pain from your muscles or spasms that you are experiencing. Your physical fitness will be our top priority as we help you recover from your injuries.

How Long Will It Take To Recover?

Recovering from your injuries will depend upon how badly you are injured. It also depends upon the injury itself, what you are mobility and what level of pain you are currently experiencing. Each and every person that becomes part of our physical therapy association will have access to the most up-to-date information. This includes the best exercises, recommendations, and medically sound tips that can help you on your road to recovery.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

In many cases, the people that come to us for help will be children. They will certainly have different needs. Our physical therapists are well aware of the differences in treating adults as opposed to children. Each of their sessions will be tailored based upon their age, size, and gender. In the same way that we can help adults recover from their injuries, we can also assist children that need to regain their strength, mobility, and their balance.
