In Pain? Consider Physical Therapy.
Physical therapy is a crucial treatment that aims to restore physical movement and function. It is a branch of healthcare that uses various techniques, exercises, and equipment that help people recover from injuries, illnesses, and surgeries.
As physical therapists, we are highly trained healthcare professionals who specialize in reducing the impact of an injury or illness on your quality of life. We’ll also help you manage your associated pain.
At Med1Care Therapy Partners, we help diagnose and treat various conditions through the use of exercises, stretching techniques, manual therapy, and other interventions. With our expertise in physical rehabilitation, combined with compassion and an understanding of your unique needs and goals, we can help reduce your pain and improve your mobility.
The American Physical Therapy Association
Med1Care Therapy Partners is proud to be part of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). APTA is dedicated to advancing the practice of physical therapy and advocating for improved patient care across the country. They provide education, resources, research, and guidance for its members to help us provide the best possible care for you. With over 100 years of experience promoting excellence in physical therapy practice, they have become a leader in the field of health care services. They also strive to raise public awareness about how physical therapists can help with various conditions and ailments.
Physical Therapy Degree Requirements
At Med1Care Therapy Partners, our staff are properly trained and certified. Our therapists obtain degrees from accredited schools and complete at least two years of study in areas such as anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, rehabilitation techniques, and exercise science. They must also pass two state-approved licensing exams: The National Physical Therapy Exam (NPTE) and the Ohio Jurisprudence Assessment Module (OH JAM).
The National Physical Therapy Examination
The National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) is a comprehensive, rigorous assessment of the knowledge and skills necessary for physical therapists to provide quality patient care. NPTE offers an objective way to evaluate clinicians’ understanding of the principles, practices, and science underlying physical therapy services.
It is administered by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT), which works with all state boards across the U.S., setting high licensure standards to protect public safety. Successful completion of the exam ensures that qualified individuals are practicing physical therapy according to current best practice guidelines set forth by FSBPT and professional organizations such as APTA.
Movement Symptoms and Conditions Physical Therapists Treat
To help you regain your mobility, strength, and balance after an injury or illness, we diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal symptoms and conditions. From newborns to seniors, physical therapy provides tailored treatment plans.
Whether it’s restoring mobility after a stroke, reducing pain from arthritis, or rehabilitating a sports injury, our physical therapists are trusted allies who are committed to helping you get back to doing the activities you love.
Physical Therapy Treatment Plan
We work with patients suffering from a wide range of conditions, such as neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and respiratory disorders. During your first visit to Med1Care, we’ll assess your condition and create a personalized, customized physical therapy plan to help you regain strength, flexibility, and mobility.
We believe that every patient should be able to enjoy life, free of pain or discomfort caused by chronic medical problems. Your treatment plan will address both immediate relief and long-term solutions for improved mobility and functionality.
How Manual Therapy Techniques Improve Mobility
Physical therapy treatment involves an array of techniques, including manual therapy, exercise therapy, and modalities such as heat, ice, and electrical stimulation. Manual therapy techniques such as massage, joint mobilization, and soft tissue mobilization help to increase range of motion and reduce pain.
Exercise therapy, on the other hand, comprises a range of exercises aimed at restoring your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. This type of physical therapy includes stretching, strengthening, and aerobic exercises that can help you regain your overall physical function.
Modalities used in physical therapy treatment are intended to help reduce inflammation and pain, and help improve tissue healing. Heat, ultrasound, ice, and electrical stimulation are common treatment options.
Geriatric Physical Therapy
Geriatric physical therapy is a specialized field that focuses on the unique physical, emotional, and social needs of older adults. Whether you are experiencing physical limitations or pain, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that will improve your overall quality of life.
One of the primary goals of geriatric physical therapy is to help our patients maintain their independence and mobility. We understand that balance and coordination issues can be particularly challenging as we age, leading to a higher risk of falls and injuries. That’s why our skilled professionals use evidence-based techniques to assess and treat these issues, from exercise programs to assistive devices. Our focus is on empowering you to maintain your active lifestyle, so you can continue to engage with your family and community.
Another important aspect of geriatric physical therapy is pain management. As we age, chronic pain becomes increasingly common, and it can significantly impact our quality of life. Our compassionate healthcare professionals use a variety of techniques, from manual therapy to electrical stimulation, to help manage pain and improve joint function. We’ll work with you to develop safe and effective pain management strategies that allow you to continue to enjoy all the activities you love.
Physical Therapy for Neurological Conditions
Physical therapy is an essential component of treatment for many patients with neurological conditions. Whether you are dealing with a common condition like Parkinson’s disease, or a rare disorder like Huntington’s disease, physical therapy can help you manage your symptoms.
For patients with Parkinson’s disease, physical therapy can address stiffness, balance problems, and difficulty with coordination. Through targeted exercises, the therapist can help you improve your mobility, reduce tremors, and ease pain. Similarly, for people with Huntington’s disease, physical therapy can focus on improving strength and flexibility, reducing contractures, and addressing gait problems.
Neurological conditions can be complex and challenging. Our team of experienced therapists will take the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and work with you to design a treatment plan that fits your needs and lifestyle. With a focus on evidence-based practice and the latest research in the field, we’re committed to providing you with the highest quality of care. So if you or a loved one is dealing with a neurological condition, know that there is help available.
Physical Therapy for Sports Related Injuries
We’ve seen numerous sports-related injuries, and we cannot stress enough the important role that physical therapy plays in the recovery process. From sprained ankles to torn ligaments, physical therapy can help you regain strength, mobility, and flexibility.
One of the most important benefits of customized physical therapy plans for sports-related injuries is the prevention of further injury. By working with us, you can be assured that you are receiving the most effective treatment possible to help you heal and recover from your injuries safely and quickly.
Furthermore, physical therapy can help improve overall physical fitness and health. Our therapists will work closely with you to design exercise programs that not only address your injuries but also improve your strength, flexibility, and endurance. By staying active and healthy, you can reduce your risk of future injuries and improve your overall quality of life.
