POST REHAB: We want your function to be better than “within normal limits.”
A transitional program from Physical Therapy to your personal best level of function. When we discharge a patient based on the insurance model, we have simply resolved the acute complaint or dysfunction but have not resolved the impairments that have slowly led up to “the problem.” I have stated I believe we are selling the patient short. Upon discharge from Physical Therapy your symptoms and function are expected to be “within normal limits”; While that may meet the discharge criteria of insurance companies, we recognize that significant improvement in the QUALITY of function is achievable and the regression to the previous condition is prevented with ongoing skilled care. We want to return you to the level of function when you last really felt “like you”! While this program does not qualify as “Medical Necessity”, the skills of a physical therapist or assistant are still utilized and manual (hands on) techniques provided as necessary. We will continue to send reports to your Physician as you or she/he may desire. The plan of care is progressed but the symptoms are no longer acute or unstable. As such, we offer a transition fee schedule from Physical Therapy to Personal Training.
