Professional Physical Therapy Rehabilitation
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a health care profession. Physical therapists evaluate and treat people with health related conditions that cause pain and limit their movement. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain, and improve mobility and function.
Inpatient Physical Therapy
After accident, illness or sugery, patients benefit from physical therapy in an inpatient setting. While receiving appropriate nursing and medical care, physical therapy helps patients regain strength, balance and mobility, and decrease pain.
Outpatient Physical Therapy
Outpatient physical therapy takes place in therapy centers. Patients attend for the duration of the visit, generally about an hour. Most people have outpatient therapy two or three times each week. The first visit will include a thorough evaluation. Subsequent visits will offer care based upon the evaluation. Therapy sessions may include exercises and various modalities, including manual therapy, E-stim, Instrument Assisted Scar Tissue Mobilization and other techniques.
In New Jersey, patients are allowed to visit a physical therapist for evaluation and treatment without delay. No physician prescription is needed.* This process, called Direct Access, affords patients a non-invasive approach to combat pain and improve function.
*Some managed care and HMO plans require a referral, and Medicare requires the primary care provider to approve the plan of care after the evaluation.
