WHY SHOULD I RECEIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR MY INJURY?

Physical Therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life via hands on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. Physical Therapists can identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems by assisting your body to make a complete recovery and restore you to full function. This is accomplished by designing a specific treatment program for the injured area that is unique to you and your condition and goals. We understand that pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life and your independence. A physical injury may damage your muscles, nerves, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and blood vessels. It is a big challenge for your body to restore everything back to normal. Physical Therapists help to improve mobility, manage pain and other chronic conditions, recover from an injury and prevent future injury. We want to empower you to be an active participant in your care. Furthermore, Physical Therapists may work collaboratively with other health professionals to ensure your care is the best, most optimal care for you.

If you are unsure about your insurance policy requirements, call us and we can check these requirements for you.
