What To Expect At Therapy
Your physician may have referred you to our clinic or, in many cases, our patients contact us because of recommendations from friends or family who have received treatment at one of our facilities.
You will notice from your first interaction with scheduling to your first step into our clinic that ORA offers a friendly, customer service attitude. Your road to recovery involves several steps, each designed to bring you closer toward your goals. With each visit, you will see and feel your progress and you will understand how the physical therapy process works.
Physical Therapy is not just an exercise regimen. It involves your therapist, working with you and your physician, to develop and execute a "Plan of Care." This involves a thorough Initial Evaluation where your therapist will ask you about your medical history and examine your injury to establish the appropriate treatment options for you. Next, the Plan of Care is developed. This plan may involve hands-on manual therapy techniques, stretching, therapeutic exercise or modalities such as heat, TENS or cold laser. Then you and your therapist will work together to achieve your goals while in physical therapy. Your therapist will continually re-evaluate your status at each visit and update the treatment plan. This will often include changes in the manual therapy or therapeutic exercise, as well as, updates to your home or gym program. Once you have completed your in-clinic physical therapy program and your goals have been met, you will be discharged from physical therapy. This however, doesn't mean that you should stop your home or gym program. In fact, keeping up with your exercise routine will help you stay well.
