WESTCHESTER SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPY’S PROGRAM WILL INCLUDE 3 PHASES OF RECOVERY:
EVALUATION - TREATMENT – RESTORATION
A comprehensive assessment including a thorough history and biomechanical examination that establishes the goals of your treatment. Your therapist determines these parameters by measuring deficits that may be factors contributing to your condition or injury, including range of motion, strength, endurance, ligamentous integrity, posture, gait, balance and functional movement. The evaluation is a continuous process that is modified accordingly and emphasizes patient education.
After the evaluation your treatment is initiated and encompasses the largest component of patient care. The treatment intervention is based on the findings in the evaluation, examination of the patient, diagnosis, prognosis and anticipated goals established. Examples of treatment interventions may include flexibility, strengthening and therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, functional training, aerobic exercise and modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, electric stimulation and cold laser therapy.
This is the final, and is a crucial, phase of recovery. Your therapist will develop and establish guidelines that will facilitate your return to activity. The restoration phase involves a gradual progression of exercises that are specific to your activity or functional demands. This phase is essential to promote continuous challenge in your abilities, gain confidence in your physical capacity and competency in performance and of full recovery.
