If you have been told that you failed PT, or you tried PT a few times and it did not work… You probably have not found the right PT for YOU.
You Did Not Fail Physical Therapy. Physical Therapy Failed You.
Not all physical therapy is the same.
- Skill level
- Experience level
- Critical thinking skills
ALL MATTER and significantly impact results.
Unfortunately, it has become increasingly challenging to provide patients with the adequate time and attention they deserve while accepting healthcare insurance in an outpatient PT clinic. Low reimbursement rates are driving the need for high patient volume making it harder for physical therapists to prescribe the most effective interventions and problem solve in real time. PT’s end up treating multiple patients at once while simultaneously completing extensive documentation.
We know because we have been there.
Once we left the insurance world we discovered how much we and our patients were missing!
- Time to assess the whole body to identify all contributing factors to symptoms
- We can select fewer, more effective interventions
- Overall faster results
- Build deeper patient relationships
- Less frequent, higher quality sessions
- Time to learn something new every day and become better therapists
The body is complicated and every individual is different, so typically, unless you suffered from an acute injury, like an ankle sprain or are just recovering from surgery, a generalized exercise program won’t solve your problem. If it does it can take significantly longer than it needs to to see the results you want. We realized that many PT’s resorted to using a shotgun approach to rehab – a bunch of interventions thrown at you hoping that one sticks, but without knowing which one or why.
It can be confusing to know where to go for help for your pain. There are a lot of options out there.
If you have been to multiple providers ie: chiropractors, PT’s, massage therapists, orthopedic specialists and are still limited by your pain, it may be time to step outside the conventional system.
Here are a few questions to consider when choosing a PT
- How much one on one time do you get with your PT?
- Are you given the same general exercises for weeks?
- Is your PT taking baseline measurements each session and then retesting them after interventions to show true change?
- Do you understand why you are doing the exercises you are doing?
- Did they address what activities or positions may be contributing to your symptoms outside of the clinic during your day and how to modify them?
- Do they understand the root cause of your symptoms and educate you so you understand?
- How frequently do they communicate with you during the week?
- How important is solving your problem without using injections, or having surgery?
If you tried physical therapy and it didn’t work, you are not alone. Many of our patients find us after trying PT in a more conventional outpatient PT setting first.
They do phenomenally and wish they had found us sooner.
We are true specialists in movement and resolving musculoskeletal pain. We have had the time and experience to develop a deep understanding of posture, movement patterns, asymmetries and how they affect function and lead to injury. We have time and expertise to find the source of your problem and identify the most effective interventions for you to return to activity, moving better and stronger than before!
You won’t just get general exercises for your back pain or knee pain like bridges, clams, band walks and planks. And you won’t need to come in 2-3x a week (unless you want to!)
We value time, communication, getting to the source of your symptoms and delivering results.
