When coming in for an appointment at JAG Physical Therapy, be sure to bring proper forms of identification, as well as insurance cards, payment information, and your doctor’s referral. Wearing loose fitting clothes allows the patient to easily expose the area that needs to be treated. Each treatment can last anywhere from thirty to sixty minutes, depending on the techniques and treatments utilized. More than half of Americans are suffering from pain, but many are unaware that physical therapists are not only well equipped to treat pain, but will focus treatment on the source of the pain, in hopes of reducing or relieving pain for an extended period of time. Each person who receives treatment at JAG Physical Therapy has a customized treatment plan designed specifically for their injury, that also takes into account things like age, body type, and general health.
Many people overlook physical therapy following an injury or surgical treatment because they don’t want to experience pain, and would rather heal on their own. JAG’s physical therapists design a treatment program to help reduce pain and provide relief. There are instances where pain may be experienced during therapy, such as recovering range of motion after a shoulder or knee injury. It’s vital to communicate any pain that you encounter during or after treatment to your physical therapist so they can make proper adjustments to your treatment.
There are dozens of types of treatments that JAG’s physical therapists utilize to treat our patients. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, patients may find themselves receiving Cryotherapy to reduce swelling, performing Gait Training on parallel bars, utilizing electrical nerve stimulation to reduce pain, or receiving a massage to decrease scar tissue. Following the completion of your treatment program, it’s not uncommon for a “flare up” to occur. Be sure to communicate that with your physical therapist, who can make the recommendation on whether to come back in for more treatment, or simply to adjust daily routines and activities.
