How we are bridging the gap between physical therapy to wellness.

There has been  an overwhelming need for Physical Therapy patients to continue working on their recovery once they have been discharged. Physical therapy can be physically demanding on PT patients, especially those patients who are unconditioned. Most PT patients are motivated to recover from their injury or ailment, but what happens are the appointments are no longer scheduled and the patients is left to rely on their own for their post-rehab exercise regimens. Adherence to a structured post-rehab exercise schedule can significantly reduce the overall time of the rehabilitation process. Transitional planning for PT patients will help maximize functional gains and enhance the patients overall experience and results.
