Welcome to Foundation Physical Therapy……

The Physical Therapist


Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who diagnose and treat people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform activities of daily life.


PTs also help prevent conditions that limit a person's ability to move by developing fitness and wellness programs that achieve healthy and active lifestyles.


PTs examine individuals and develop plans of care using treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disabilities. They provide care in hospitals, outpatient clinics, home health, nursing homes, schools, sports facilities, and more.


Care provided by a physical therapist will begin with an examination and clinical evaluation. The physical therapist will design an individualized plan of care which may include interventions such as therapeutic exercise; functional training in self-care and home management (including activities of daily living) and in community and work integration or reintegration; manual therapy, such as mobilization and manipulation; uses of devices and equipment, such as assistive, adaptive, orthotic, or prosthetic devices; electrotherapeutic modalities, physical agents, and mechanical modalities, such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation.


A PT must have a graduate degree from an accredited physical therapist education program before taking a national licensure examination from the state in which he or she practices. Physical therapists must have a minimum of a master's degree. Today most education programs offer the doctor of physical therapy degree. Please see your therapist resume which we have in the office.

Scheduling Process


We offer scheduling between 8:00 – 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. We schedule all the recommended appointment times after the evaluation, this way you can schedule best for your day and consistently with a particular therapist. If your schedule is not flexible, please keep in mind that it may be difficult to go through the scheduling process.

Treatment


Some patients have no adverse effects after the evaluation, but others may feel sore. Keep in mind that this is normal. Treatment will begin on your next scheduled appointment. Please inform your Physical Therapist of how you felt after your examination. It appears that most patients will experience improvement around the 8th appointment. Don’t get discouraged, and keep in mind how long you have had your problem. Most patients stay 45 minutes to 1 hour. Please inform your therapist if you need accommodations for an appointment. We have had success with those patients who commit to the recovery of their dysfunction, therefore your Physical Therapist will be giving you a home exercise program within the first week of treatment. It is very important that you commit to these exercises in order to achieve your goals. Follow the instructions of your physical therapist. Your therapist may give you exercises to do at home to improve daily function and to keep continuity of care. It is very important that you comply with written and verbal instructions so that you get the most out of your time in physical therapy and achieve the maximum outcomes. Please show up on time. This is very important… Showing up late may negatively impact our treatment as well as someone else’s. Avoid Cancellations. We understand that cancellations are sometimes unavoidable, but when at all possible please call to cancel 24 hours in advance.

Discharge


You will be evaluated each treatment and a formal reevaluation will be completed near the end of your scheduled treatment. At that time you and your Physical Therapist will determine if you achieved your objective goals. If skilled treatment is still indicated your physician will be sent the reevaluation to determine the need to continue or discharge rehabilitation.
