If you’ve had physical therapy you know that depending on your issues, PT treatments may consist of strengthening exercises, stretching, manual therapy, or modalities to aid in your recovery process.
But some physical therapy providers have fallen into a “business model” that detracts from patient care: fifteen minutes with the actual therapist, and the rest of your one-hour appointment with an aide. It’s more like “drive-by therapy” and it’s not the way we do things here.
At Scott Family Health, we do not have a cookie cutter process. Each physical therapy session is 100% one-on-one patient care with a therapist. Our PT team consists of myself and Richard Johnson, PTA, and he and I work together closely to help each patient achieve the best outcome possible.
As a physical therapist, I have received 7 years of training (with 3 of those years spent earning my Doctorate of Physical Therapy). I have worked as a physical therapist for 5.5 years. 85-95% of my experience has been specifically with orthopedic patients: back pain, neck pain, ankle injuries, shoulder injuries, headaches, surgical care, and even balance issues.
Rich has his Associates degree as a physical therapist assistant. He also has a Bachelors in Exercise Science and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. His degrees and certification make him uniquely qualified to assist you in your recovery process due to his extensive background and training with the musculoskeletal system.
Also, we only treat one patient at a time. The entire time you’re in our physical therapy gym it will be you and your therapist. No other distractions. This allows us to give you our undivided attention and receive the best care possible!
