Schedule A Yearly Physical Therapy ‘Checkup’ To Take Charge Of Your Health
Victoria 08/07/2018 – Yearly visits to the primary care physician and the dentist are often scheduled six months to one year in advance and have become non-negotiable annual health “checkups.” The impact of these visits on your health cannot be underestimated, however you might be overlooking the health
of other parts of your body. When you make the healthcare rounds this year, consider adding a trip to the physical therapist to the list.
Physical therapists are trained to address the specific needs of your musculoskeletal system (bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and connective tissue.) During your visit the physical therapist will gather health history and perform a series of test and measures, including screening of the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems; in other words, assess your posture, muscle strength, range-of-motion of joints, flexibility of muscles, balance and how you move.
Quote from VPT patient: “I had given-up on ever achieving pain control, and my doctor sent me to Bryan. I’ve been to other PTs, but none like Bryan! He helped me understand my pain and I am happy to say, my pain is under control!”
Whether you’re an athlete or just getting started with an exercise program, clinical screening tools help PTs understand how your body performs during a series of movements. Based on the information gathered, the PT is equipped to design an individual program to prevent injuries. Quote from VPT patient: “Mary and staff at VPT treated me with respect, they listened to me, the whole experience was fun and beneficial! I appreciate being able to participate in the decisions for my PT program!”
