When was the last time you felt no pain, even when sitting at your desk? For many people, everyday, pain, has become a way of life. Those who have turned to physical therapists for liberation from pain and immobility have found their quality of life greatly improved. Having a physical therapist as part of your health regimen can make the difference between living with pain and really living without it.
Physical therapists are your perfect partners in health. They are experts in the way the body moves. As highly educated health care professionals, physical therapists help you maintain mobility and quality of life without surgery or prescription medication, in many cases.
Physical therapists can get you moving and enjoying life again, using scientifically-based treatment techniques that focus on restoring function, reducing pain, and preventing injury.
A physical therapist, often in collaboration with you and your physician, will work to help you achieve a healthy, active lifestyle and can help you manage your health over the long term.
What Can You Expect from Our Physical Therapist?
Because physical therapists graduating today are required to have a graduate degree – either a master’s degree or clinical doctorate – and pass national and state licensure examinations before being allowed to practice, you can expect the best professional care. TSR’s director, Avari Garcia, has her doctorate from Texas Women’s University.
Most insurance plans cover physical therapist services. On your first visit, your physical therapist will spend a significant amount of time evaluating your condition and determining when and why it occurs. She or he may then work with your physician to develop the best plan of care for you – one that will get you moving again and deliver long-term results.
Physical therapists understand that the road to recovery is personal, so you will always receive a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. You are the most important member of your own health care team and you have the freedom to choose your own physical therapist. Please insist that your physical therapy be provided only by a licensed physical therapist.
