Physical therapists seek to restore function, whether it is an adult to return to work, an athlete to return to his or her sport, or a senior adult to be able perform gardening for example. In outpatient therapy, our goal is to get to the source of the problem, attempt to solve the problem and get the patient independent in his or her home exercise program to prevent the injury from occurring again. We also restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. PT’s examine each individual and develop a plan using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PT’s work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
The following list contains some of the most common reasons to see a physical therapist and those conditions treated at AthletePlus.
Physical therapists are experts in how the body functions and moves and are very cost effective. Early physical therapy intervention prevents more costly treatment later, can result in a faster recovery, and reduces costs associated with lost time from work. Patients pay less when they have direct access to physical therapy services without a doctor referral. However, there can be a temptation under managed care to terminate services prematurely. A study conducted to determine whether direct access to physical therapy services was cost-effective found that patients who went directly to a physical therapist had fewer episodes of care, and services were ultimately less costly.
I was really pleased with the service at AthletePlus. The staff is professional and helpful. I felt comfortable asking any questions about the therapy and anything related to my injury. I felt at ease getting advice on how to adapt the routines so I could do them at home. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone.
Very enjoyable. Instruction was concise and focus on my injury was expertly addressed. Chris let me describe in detail my injury and built a program specific to treating my issue.
they defiantly helped me get my knees back to where i wanted them and even make them stronger.
My experience at AthletePlus, was the best. They helped me be more flexible and a strengthening my hip.
My experience was great! They are all very nice and very helpful, the workers here do a great job, and also make you feel very comfortable by building a relationship with their patients. They also strive to get you at the level you need to be at, and will give it their all to get you there. I would recommend everyone I know to go to Athlete Plus!
I almost didn’t come back after the first week of therapy because the pain was so bad but I’m so glad I did. My experience was so good with all of the therapy assistants. I felt they were very caring.
“Thank you Chris and the AthletePlus team for all your help in getting my knee back to “normal”. I can use it again with ease and no pain”
Extremely helpful in helping my recovery from my injury. They were able to provide a program that helped me progress as smooth and quick as possible.
I started my physical therapy in a significant amount of pain. After a couple weeks I stopped taking pain medicine because I was experiencing so much relief from pain. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. Every visit was a positive experience.
Exceptional will be my word. First thing that comes in my mind.
