Choosing a physical therapist is a personal decision and one that shouldn’t be made in haste. One of the best ways to locate a therapist is by asking family, friends, co-workers or your primary care physician for recommendations. An online search can also be conducted or visit the American Physical Therapy Association website.
While all physical therapists are highly trained and educated professionals, some choose to specialize in specific areas of expertise. Some physical therapists specialize in all aspects of pregnancy related needs, while others choose to concentrate on sports injuries, rehabilitation for stroke or accident victims, pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology or geriatrics. It’s important that patients select a physical therapist that has experience in their particular condition.
At OSTC, all of our Physical Therapists are either Board Certified Specialists in Sports or Orthopedics or are in the process of becoming a Board Certified Specialist. This means our Physical Therapists have proven themselves through testing to have a higher level of knowledge, skill, and experience in Sports and Orthopedics than a non-board Certified Physical Therapist.
As a company, we have made a commitment to consistently sending our professionals to seminars and training by the top orthopedic and sports medical professionals in the country. This benefits you in that you can rest assured that your Physical Therapist is up to date on the latest evidence based practice techniques and technology, which will result in better outcomes for you.
In addition to being highly trained, our professionals love what they do. You will be treated in an upbeat and energized environment with happy people that will consistently encourage you along the journey toward reaching your goals.
Patients should feel comfortable with their physical therapist, be able to ask questions and talk with them freely about their condition and treatment. Having a rapport with the physical therapist is critical for effective treatment.
OSTC physical therapists encourage you to come by to meet our staff. We offer free consultations to help best guide you on your road to recovery. We would love you to choose OSTC to be your orthopedic and sports physical therapy provider for life.
