Individualized Physical Therapy Proves To Be More Effective In Recovery
What is Individualized Physical Therapy?
Individualized Physical Therapy is a process where patients and trained doctors of physical therapy interact collaboratively on a one-on-one basis. These sessions are designed to give the doctor and patient time to get to know the patient’s problems and work together on the best solution. The goal is to promote change and improvement in the quality of life based on the specific lifestyle of that patient.
Individualized PT considers important factors such as age, activity level, previous injuries and source of injury. An individualized / personalized PT plan improves recovery time as well as treating each patient’s unique injury effectively.
According to a study from the University of Eastern Finland, individuals who receive personally tailored, individualized therapy were statistically and clinically better than those in groups that received generic exercises.
Benefits of Individualized Therapy:
Entire visit is centered around getting to know the patient and analyzing patient progress.
One-on-One visits help build a strong patient-doctor relationship.
Completely comfortable, safe and non-judgmental environment.
Extensive treatment plans are made specifically for the individual.
Exercise plans are designed with careful consideration of your age, activity level and injury.
Individualized therapy is a therapeutic journey a doctor and patient go through to become more self-aware of injury prevention and recovery. Individuals who have experienced joint or muscle conditions that limit your ability to move freely should seek treatment from a physical therapist.
