What is physical therapy?

A physical therapist (PT) is a body and muscle expert who works with you to repair your movement and strength following an injury. They continuously evaluate the patient’s progress and help with specific exercises, stretches, and techniques to address the injuries the individual is experiencing.

Our physical therapists provide help and guidance until the patient is fully recovered.

Who needs physical therapy?

This specialty has an extensive range of functions. It is helpful for people who are losing mobility due to age or who had an accident and need rehabilitation to regain mobility and strength.

It can go from minor injuries like

  • Bone fracture

  • Muscle tear

  • Injured ligaments

To more severe impairments such as the following

  • CVA (Cerebrovascular Accident)

  • Rheumatism

  • Paraplegia

  • Limb amputation

A physiotherapist’s main objective is to restore the patient’s mobility and prevent further deterioration due to age, illness, injury, or disability.

What tasks does a physiotherapist perform?

Physical therapy utilizes various methods and techniques to help get your loved one back to a fuller range of motion. They will find the most suitable according to the patient’s demands and care plan. If the impairment is irreversible, they will look for a way to compensate for that condition and prevent muscle attrition.

The most important tasks are:

  • Inform the patient or relatives about their medical status.

  • Perform different techniques, with hand movements or with special equipment (like weights, hydrotherapy, spring balancers, bands, etc.)

  • Motivate patients with their progress.

  • Massages for muscle relaxation and better circulation.

  • Analyze and generate reports of the patient’s improvement.

  • Guide patients to independently perform the exercises on their own.

Can PT be preformed by a skilled nurse?

Yes, physical therapy consists of many healthcare members, and nurses have a role in this situation. A team of doctors and nursing professionals coordinates the treatment measures with the other members as part of the overall therapy plan. They discuss both the medical prescriptions and the treatment with the patients themselves.

Does insurance cover physical therapy?

PT is covered by insurance companies. In Texas, the direct access law allows patients to receive physical therapy for a limited time. In most cases, the individual will need several sessions that won’t be covered in that limited time, so insurance will be needed.
