What does your physical therapist do?

First things first. As a physical therapist I want to ensure that you feel at home when you walk in through my doors. Your trust is important for the success of the physical therapy program tailored to your needs. Eventually I would like to maintain a good therapeutic alliance to ensure future service, if need be. Here is the typical approach:

  1. Listen to you carefully to find out what exactly is impacting your present condition.
  2. Provide comprehensive assessment using a biopsychosocial approach- physical, psychological and social/vocational components.
  3. Arrive at a hypothetical diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan based on the physician’s recommendation, if any.
  4. Provide treatment in a safe and effective manner utilizing hands-on approach/manual therapy, exercises and movement re-education. I may use E-stim and therapeutic ultrasound as an adjunct to facilitate the healing process.
  5. Communicate with your physician about the present progress and any changes in your condition.
  6. Ultimately the goal is to optimize movement, recover function and enhance performance to help you return safely to what you like doing.
