Physical therapist (PT) is a health care professional, who helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. This includes providing services in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors. Physical therapy is concerned with identifying and maximizing quality of life and movement within the spheres of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.
PTs diagnose and establish a management plan, and when necessary, incorporate the results of laboratory and imaging studies. Treatment often includes exercise for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Physical therapy is performed by either a physical therapist (PT) or an assistant (PTA) acting under their direction.
The goal of our PTs is to restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Physical therapists help patients with pain management. Amongst other areas, our PTs are trained and have extensive experience in orthopedic surgery. Our PTs help patients cope and improve disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, fractures, and post operative rehabilitation. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home, thus, improve the overall lives of our patients.
A physician assistant (PA) is a healthcare professional licensed to practice medicine with supervision of a licensed physician. Physician assistants go through extensive training and provide a broad range of healthcare services. Physician assistants examine and treat patients, treat injuries, perform procedures, prescribe medication, order and analyze lab test and X-rays, and assist in surgeries.
Physician assistants exercise autonomy in medical decision making. Their role is very different than that of a medical assistant, who performs routine and clinical and clerical tasks. PAs have at least four years of experience in the medical health field prior to becoming a PA. They are board certified through American Medical Associations.
PAs are represented in the United States by the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
We have X-ray equipment and an X-ray technician, in the office, at all times. An X-ray technician is a trained health care worker, with specific skills in the area of working with x-ray equipment to take “insider” pictures of the body so that diseases, conditions, or injury can be visualized and diagnosed. In this growing field, most x-ray techs train for a year or two prior to working in a variety of fields. The field is not without risk, since long-term exposure to frequent x-rays is correlated to the development of certain cancers. Following safety protocols like blocking vulnerable body parts from radiation with lead sheets or walls while x-rays are taken minimizes this risk.
