Many patients recovering from an injury or illness truly benefit from the use of physical therapy. Should your Plan of Care or Physician determine that one would be beneficial, the RN Case Manager will refer one for an initial visit. Physical therapy has been proven to be significantly effective in easing pain and improving function and mobility.
After providing a complete examination, the therapist will be able to decide which treatment, if any, would be productive in our client’s recovery. By incorporating these treatment plans into daily living, the affect should be quite obvious.
Physical therapists use a variety of treatment strategies. They may employ different types of exercise, which not only promote strength, but muscle endurance as well. Some may even use less routine therapies like electrical stimulation or ultrasound technology.
Whether the problem is age, injury, or disease related, physical therapy is always a viable solution.
