Tumwater Massage Clinic
I was sent here for a work related injury. I never really believed in massage therapy and when I got the "prescription" I wasn't too enthused about the idea. I didn't have a choice though it was part of the overall "wellness plan" to fix me up so I went. Ted made a believer out of me. I haven't had this much motion in my arm and shoulders in decades, let alone since the injury. My shoulders would keep me up at night, I couldn't do anything without having spasms and pain and I'd favor my right arm and neck every time I did something. I'm much better! MUCH better! So, in short if you're hurting and searching for a possible fix to possibly avoid a scalpel or if you just want to loosen up I strongly recommend you go visit Ted or Irene. It worked very well for me.Thanks again Ted! It's still working well. Dennis
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.
