Mobile Physical Therapy
What is Mobile Physical Therapy?
In today’s healthcare environment, providers are under increasing pressure to see more patients and meet ever-increasing productivity standards. Costs are going up, while reimbursements are going down. This requires healthcare providers to spend less time with each patient, and to see more patients in a day. Outcomes and patient experience suffer as a result.
The solution? Mobile physical therapy! While most PT clinics require their Physical Therapists to see 2-4 patients per hour, On The Go Physical Therapy provides one-on-one patient care for a full hour by a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy in the comfort of the patient’s home, office, or gym. This results in exceptional outcomes, faster recoveries, and functionally-relevant treatment! If you are looking for mobile physical therapy to help make you healthier, stronger, and more active, give our office a call today!
What exactly is physical therapy?
Physical therapy generally consists of three important phases: pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration. Some people are apprehensive toward physical therapy in general, because they believe it will hurt them; however, the opposite is usually true. Physical therapy is aimed at pain relief and strengthening, and our physical therapist will make sure that your treatment plan won’t bring you any pain or discomfort. This is achieved in the convenience of your home through several treatment services, such as ice and heat therapies, stretching, and bracing.
An active lifestyle is also dependent upon movement. Our physical therapist will cater to your treatment plan around specific movements designed to increase your strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility. He or she will assist you with many of these exercises, but will also provide some simple ones that can be done at home on your own.
The end result of physical therapy is living the life you want, independently and free from painful limitations. That can only happen when you apply the concepts you learn from your treatments to the outside world. Our mobile physical therapist is as dedicated as you are, and will encourage you to achieve all the goals you set forth in the beginning.
How will mobile physical therapy help me?
The purpose of mobile physical therapy remains the same, no matter what you are seeking its services for. Perhaps you are still suffering from the lingering pain of an injury. Perhaps you are recovering from surgery and trying to get your range of motion back. Perhaps your joints simply aren’t what they used to be, and you are looking for relief. Whatever the case may be, physical therapists are dedicated to relieving your pain and getting you back to your peak level of physical health.
A physical therapist is a movement specialist, educated in analyzing mobility issues with walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and almost every other form of physical activity. Our physical therapist can pinpoint problem areas and create a customized treatment plan aimed at improving those areas. Through in-home sessions and at-home exercises, you can strengthen your muscles and joints, improve your balance, build endurance, and experience pain relief, all without the unwanted harmful risks of drugs or surgery.
What should I expect?
Everyone has different needs based on the conditions of their bodies. There is no cookie-cutter approach to health and wellness, as one treatment plan may not work the same for one person as it would for another. Your physical therapist will work closely with you to evaluate your mobility, balance, range of motion, and severity of pain. Your physical goals will also be taken into account when creating your treatment plan, as well as any health risks that may be holding you back. At your initial evaluation, you may be asked to perform basic movements, such as sitting down, standing up, walking, lifting, stretching, or other motions. Once our physical therapist has a clear picture of what you need, he or she will begin constructing a treatment plan to help relieve your pain and achieve your goals.
In the end, an active lifestyle is more than possible, even if you struggle with chronic pain. If you are looking to improve your health, strength, and physical activity, look no further – we are here to help.
