Your Visit May Include:
Graded exercise program: This involves a thoughtful and carefully designed strengthening and flexibility program specific for the patient's needs and goals. Although patients may have the same diagnosis, every individual has their own unique situation, beliefs, abilities and goals. For this reason there are no "cookie cutter" programs, all programs are tailored to fit you.
Home exercise program: Throughout your treatment you will be given exercises and reading to be done on your own. Educating and empowering the patient is one of the most important things a physical therapist can do and this is where the home exercise program comes in. It is important to remember the therapist is only with you for a few hours a week, the rest of the time you are on your own. Therefore, it is imperative that you take control of your health and become an active participant in your rehabilitation.
Hands On Techniques
This includes hands on techniques, soft tissue work, neuromuscular reeducation, and manual cueing for exercise form from the therapist.
Neuroscience Pain Education
This is essentially "explaining pain" to the patient from a neuroscience approach. This education has been shown to decrease fear avoidance, anxiety and catastrophization of one's painful situation. The painful experience is extremely complex and we explain it to the patient through the use of neuroscience, pictures, stories and metaphors. Because the majority of people seek out a physical therapist due to pain, this is a vital part of the physical therapy experience.
