Physical Therapy Clinic

Our Physical therapy clinic at Med1care is well equipped and we have skilled professionals and licensed physical therapists who are well experienced and put in their best efforts to ensure that our patients get the best care. 

Our Physical therapists will assess your condition and use the result of the assessment to develop a care plan that will serve as a guide for your therapy. They use a hands-on approach for treatment of your symptoms. Special exercises are also taught in our physical therapy clinic to help you function and move better. 

Although our physical therapist will not take the place of other doctors in cases of patients with serious injury or sickness, they will however work alongside your doctors and other professionals of health care to guide your treatments. With the guidance of our physical therapist, physically disabled patients tend to recover faster than when they are being treated without the guidance of a physical therapist. 

During your first therapy session with a physical therapist at Med1care, you will be examined and your healthcare needs will be assessed. Questions about your ability to perform everyday tasks, your pain, sleeping performance, your medical history and other symptoms will be asked in the course of the assessment. These questions are asked in order to determine the extent of your condition and give a diagnosis. It also helps determine the cause and reason for your condition and then develop a care plan that will treat it. 

Some of the tests administered by our physical therapist are:

  • Your posture or balance
  • How well you can move around, reach, bend, or grasp
  • Your heartbeat or rhythm while active
  • How well you walk or climb steps

After the administered test, a treatment plan will be created for you based on the discoveries gotten from the test. This treatment plan will include exercises, your personal goals for your health and other treatments to help you achieve these goals.

The recovery period and the time it takes to achieve these goals varies for all individuals depending on their needs. Hence, some may have fewer sessions than others and vice versa.

It teaches them how to adapt to their conditions, and move around and perform tasks with the aid of assistive devices. 

At Med1care, our occupational therapist will come up with ways to change your physical movements to enable you to take part in activities, get work done and take care of yourself. 

We also have Occupational therapy assistants that will aid with some aspects of your treatment. However, these assistants do not assess you or create your care plan for your therapy. 

During your first appointment with our occupational therapists, they will do an assessment of your needs and then work with you to create a therapy plan and set designed goals for your needs, limits or disability. Med1care occupational therapy trains you to adapt your movements, perform regular tasks in new ways, improve hand-eye coordination or motor skills.

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s are experts in addressing tension headaches through our team of skilled physical therapists. Tension headaches may manifest as pain that spans the entirety of the head, concentrates on a specific side, or lingers around the eyes and forehead.

Typical indications encompass throbbing discomfort that varies between a constant, mild ache and a sudden, intense stabbing pain. The intensity of the headache is measured by its impact on daily functioning. Are you able to carry on with work commitments? Can you experience uninterrupted sleep during the night?

Causes of Headaches

Tension headaches may arise from various factors such as stress, back-related problems, incorrect posture, or unhealthy lifestyle choices. Unfortunately, excessive use of over-the-counter pain relievers can also contribute to the onset of headaches.

When confronted with a stressful situation, it’s advisable to plan ahead or streamline your schedule by removing unnecessary tasks. To improve your posture, remember to draw your shoulders back and maintain a level head position, while also engaging your buttocks and abdominal muscles. When seated, ensure your thighs are parallel to the ground.

If your headache isn’t attributable to stress, posture, or lifestyle factors, there’s a possibility of a more significant neurological origin. In such cases, a visit to your doctor’s office might involve diagnostic techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT) scans to identify potential underlying causes. 

How We Help

For those grappling with persistent or recent-onset headaches, our physical therapy techniques for managing headaches can offer substantial relief. Our team of therapists is adept at addressing back discomfort, rectifying posture issues, and ultimately enhancing your quality of life.

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s expert physical therapists have specialized expertise in Kinesio taping. Kinesio taping offers valuable support for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.

Kinesio tape is crafted from a flexible blend of cotton and nylon, engineered to replicate the skin’s natural elasticity. When affixed to areas of concern, the tape gently raises the skin from the underlying muscles, potentially diminishing pain signals transmitted to the brain.

Kinesio taping facilitates unrestricted movement and exhibits impressive durability, remaining securely in position for over three days. Its resilience persists during physical activities and even showering, making it a versatile option. 

What Kinesio Taping Does?  

Kinesio taping serves multiple functions, encompassing pain relief, muscle support, modulation of muscle tone, promotion of lymphatic fluid movement, facilitation of proper movement patterns, enhancement of posture, improved circulation, reduction of swelling, mitigation of joint irritation, performance enhancement, and prevention of injuries.

Kinesio taping is employed to address various conditions, including:

  • Gait issues stemming from stroke
  • Head and neck posture concerns
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Post-breast cancer care
  • External outlet impingement
  • Knee replacement
  • Patellofemoral stress syndrome
  • Management of scarring
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Subacromial impingement
  • IT band friction syndrome
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis

Frequently Asked Questions

Both physical therapy and physiotherapy make use of hands-on techniques and movement to improve the body condition of the patients, but the difference between them is primarily in their approach to doing this. To summarize it, physiotherapy is mainly focused on manual therapies, while physical therapy treatment is focused more on exercise.

In simple terms, the main purpose of rehabilitation is to help a child, an adult or an elderly person to be as independent as possible in performing tasks, engaging in everyday activities and enabling participation in work, education, recreation and meaningful life roles such as taking care of family.

Apart from the frequency, each session may last between 30 and 60 minutes in length. While two to three visits in a week may appear to be too much, especially if you have just sustained an injury or undergone surgery, it is important to understand why regular visits are necessary.

The most basic difference between physical therapy and occupational therapy is that a PT focuses on improving the patient’s ability to move their body whereas an OT focuses on improving the patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living.

In general, you should attend physical therapy until you reach your PT goals or until your therapist—and you—decide that your condition is severe enough that your goals need to be re-evaluated. Typically, it takes about 6 to 8 weeks for soft tissue to heal, so your course of PT may last about that long.

It is never too late to treat an injury. Of course, it’s ideal to treat an injury right away to prevent further injury and reduce the need for medications to manage pain. However, even if an injury has gone untreated, it’s never too late to begin treating it. Even years later, physical therapy can help an old injury.

Most people can comfortably get by with seeing their physiotherapist three times per week. The important point though is that your therapist will recommend a schedule that’s best for your individual needs which can range between 2-3 times per week, often tapering down to 1-2 times per week as treatment advances.

The amount of physical therapy that will be enough for you is entirely dependent on your illness or injury, as well as how quickly your body responds to physical therapy. For some people, one or two sessions with instructions for home exercise may be sufficient while others may require several months of physical therapy.
