What is Physical Therapy?
SOAR physical therapy is part of the interdisciplinary team, dedicated to your complete health and well being. The physical therapy department helps our patients improve upon flexibility, strength, functional mobility,and tasks of everyday living. You will be thoroughly evaluated by expert physical therapists. A plan of care, with appropriate goals, will be customized for you. The treatment plan will be delivered in the clinic and accompanied by a complete home exercise program.
The therapists are well versed and highly trained to treat patients with neck injuries, back injuries, neurologic disorders, vestibular/balance dysfunction, athletic injuries, motor vehicle accident injuries, and workplace injuries.
The PT department is home to the durable medical equipment at SOAR. If any braces, canes, or other home use equipment is ordered, the team will ensure proper set up, fitting, and instruction in use. PT is also where the doctor may refer you for functional tolerance assessments. The doctor will be able to use the results of that assessment to determine restrictions for return to work, disability impairments, and final summary of outcomes.
