Gulf Coast Physical Therapy Center
This team of 3 licensed Physical Therapists (PT), 1 Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), and the scheduler/receptionist provides outstanding service. I had muscle and nerve issues in my neck, back (sciatic nerve) and knee that was extremely painful. The PT and PTA worked on all the issues that caused my problems (not just the symptoms). After the PT fixed the nerve pain through releases, stretches, and e-stim; she started me on an exercise strengthening program where she monitored to make sure I was isolating and exercising the weak muscle to prevent the continued overuse of the muscles that were compensating for the initial weakness. The entire staff works as a professional, cohesive team to provide the best service to the patients. This has been the best PT clinic I have ever used (been to 4) and my experience here was completely different from the other clinics I have used!
Tips & Advices
At the first appointment with a physical therapist, Expect an overall assessment of your condition, which may include exercises to understand your range of motion, balance, and strength. Based on that information, the therapist can then design a regimen.
Physical therapists can work in a variety of environments. While many choose to work in a physical therapy clinic, others will operate out of hospitals and are also able to make house calls to help patients who need in-home assistance and rehabilitation.
Physical therapists can specialize in sports medicine, women's health, geriatric, neurologic, orthopedic​, pediatric, and cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions, among others.
See a physical therapist following a serious muscle or bone injury, especially if pain doesn't go away within a few days, is recurring and dull, or is frequent and sharp. Book an appointment if medication is not helping or if your doctor recommends it.
The majority of health insurance plans do include physical therapy treatment, but the amount covered and the co-pay for patients varies person-to-person. Medicare and workers’ compensation both cover physical therapy.
