Orthopaedic Motion & Sport Physical Therapy
On my search to find a physical therapy office I came across orthopediedic motion and sports. Feeling hesitant to try another physical therapy facility based on my last experience, I was quickly reassured here. On my first appointment I was evaluated; asked extensive questions that help me pinpoint my direct concern and felt that this therapy prevailed an accurate plan personalized to suit my chronic pain. Treatment was a success and I no longer am struggling with debilitating shin splints, however; I continue to go to OPMS physical therapy by choice for injury prevention and healthy training!
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.
