We want to expand traditional Physical Therapy rehabilitation services to assists our patients with both prevention and performance. At your “Initial PT Evaluation” we will go over your medical history and establish “Plan of Care Visits” for your rehabilitation. Our PT rehabilitation programs culminate with a “Graduation Visit” where we will give you goals to achieve after discharge. Our “Baseline Screens” help healthy individuals identify problems before they become serious, and help you perform up to your full potential.
Your first visit with a Physical Therapist to evaluate a specific condition is called an “Initial PT Evaluation” or “Eval”. You can be referred by another Physician or decide to come in on your own or “Self-Refer”. This is called Direct Access and is allowed in all 50 US states as of 2019, making Physical Therapy a first choice option for musculoskeletal (MSK) health issues! Before your initial eval, you will be asked to provide your medical history which you will review with your PT during your eval. You will receive some level of treatment, and be provided with i) a home exercise program and ii) a “plan of care” for future visits including frequency and duration.
After your Initial PT Eval, you will be given a “Plan of Care” for future visits. This will typically include a frequency (for example, once or twice per week), and a duration (for example, 8 weeks). It is extremely important that our patients stick to their Plan of Care. For convenience, patients are allowed to advance schedule so they can establish regular days and times for their visits. If a patient’s Plan of Care changes during treatment, they may be assigned a new home exercise program. A Plan of Care may be shortened or lengthened based on the patient’s progress, and patient’s may be re-evaluated, a “ re-eval”, if there has been a significant change in their condition. If the plan of care is proceeding as scheduled, your PT will schedule a “Graduation Visit” to discharge you from care with modifications to your home exercise program.
Your Graduation Visit is essential to your long-term recovery. At this visit, we will make sure you are prepared to self-manage your continued recovery outside of the PT clinic setting. We will let you know the warning signs associated with your condition. This Check Up can be done virtually or in clinic. At this point, you can also schedule a “Baseline Screen”, to set a baseline score for your musculoskeletal fitness.
Therapydia has a unique focus on prevention and performance. Our mission includes attention to your longevity, vitality and happiness. Baseline Screens are intended for the healthy population, so are appropriate for individuals who do not yet need PT or who have graduated from PT. Our proprietary software and patient portal, PTanywhere, allows us to establish a baseline score for your musculoskeletal fitness so you can compare your progress over time, and compare yourself across demographics. We offer a variety of screens so that we can find the one that is the most appropriate for you and your goals. All Baseline Screens are comprised of standardized 10 tests, scored from 0-10, for a maximum score of 100. Your screen comes with a home exercise program for targeting any tests where your score was not optimal with the goal of improving your score at your next screen. Subsequent screens can be performed annually or more frequently for athletes or high stress job functions.
