Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of seeing a Physical Therapist?
Thrive Rehab's physical therapists examine, evaluate, and treat patients who have conditions such as back pain, neck pain, burns, wounds, osteoporosis, developmental disabilities, carpal tunnel syndrome, and countless other conditions affecting your ability to move freely and without pain.
Our physical therapists are evidence-based health care professionals who offer cost-effective treatment that helps improve motion and relieve pain.
How can a physical therapist help?
We are always conducted extensive consumer research through surveying our patients and continuing education. We learned that our patients, are really looking for three things:
improved mobility and motion,
an alternative to surgery and,
to reduce the need for prescription medications, when possible.
Here's how our physical therapist can help you achieve these goals:
Improving Mobility and Motion:
Motion is essential to your quality of life. Whether it is an everyday task such as emptying the dishwasher, a sports activity like golf, or an essential activity such as performing their job, our team can help you experience improved mobility and function. Our physical therapist also helps to prevent injuries and promote a healthy lifestyle by improving strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination.
Providing a Conservative Option to Surgery:
While surgery can be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is evidence to indicate that physical therapists can offer an alternative. Considering conservative options to surgery is the start of quality care. Physical therapy is one of these options for many individuals.
When there is a need for surgery, our physical therapist can enhance the outcome both before and after surgery. Additionally, for those individuals whose health conditions prevent surgery from being an option, Thrive can be the best alternative in helping them improve or maintain the quality of your life.
Managing Pain Effectively Without Long-Term Use of Medication:
Thrive's physical therapist can help patients control pain, often reducing the need for long-term use of medications. Studies reveal that individuals who receive physical therapy experience greater improvement in function with less pain. While recognizing that medication is an essential component in the management of many acute and chronic conditions, our physical therapist can provide an alternative to the long-term use of medications for the management of pain and certain other health conditions.
Am I Expected to keep my appointments?
Yes: You are expected to keep your appointments but we do understand that life happens. Please just let us know as early as possible so our therapists schedules can be amended.
Arrive for treatment sessions at the scheduled time or a few minutes early so you are prepared. Late arrival may affect not only your 1-on-1 time with the therapist, but that of other patients in the clinic.
