When most people think of physical therapy, they immediately think of rehab for someone with a sports injury or following surgery. While those are things physical therapists frequently treat, they also work with many other patients, presenting with a wide variety of injuries from ankle sprains to total joint replacements.
The profession of physical therapy can be divided into many distinct practice areas. Through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) there are nine areas in which physical therapists can receive advanced certification. One of these specialty areas, which covers many of the injuries, diseases and age populations treated by physical therapists, is orthopedics. Delta Physical Therapy treats many orthopedic conditions that affect your ability to perform on a daily basis. The ABPTS defines the Orthopedic specialty area as: treatment for musculoskeletal injuries involving bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This is the specialty in which Delta Physical Therapy focuses. We provide superior orthopedic care in a personalized environment in which we develop a treatment plan that is unique to each patient and his/her chief complaint.
We purposefully keep patient volume low to allow us to spend more time with an individual and provide the services they need. We feel that in many cases in today’s healthcare environment, patients are not getting the attention they need as their healthcare providers run from patient to patient and struggle under mounds of paperwork.
We have designed our systems to allow for more personal and detailed care in a setting that will allow us to get to the root of the problem and develop a plan to help patients regain their function and independence.
When looking for the right physical therapist to treat a particular ailment or disease, patients should feel comfortable asking about the therapist’s training, education and background. At Delta Physical Therapy we want you to feel like you can ask us anything, so feel free and ask away! Understanding what expertise physical therapists have helps understand the rehab approach and how it impacts an injury or illness. Patients who start a dialogue and keep an open line of communication with their physical therapists will get the most out of their rehabilitation sessions.
We love our profession and talking about how it can make a difference in your life even more!
