Our Services / Physical Therapy
At Valley Sports
Physicians, patients can benefit from on-site physical therapy and
rehabilitation. Having the physicians and the therapists in the same
office offers several advantages:
- A true "team"
approach to your care. The physicians and therapists can more easily
work together as a team, coordinating care and making treatment changes
"on the fly" more easily. This enhances the quality and efficiency of
- Commitment to care—not to the bottom line.
Stand-alone physical therapy practices obviously are in business to
make money. As a result they are often forced to make business and
treatment decisions based on the bottom line, rather than what is
necessarily best for patient care. For example, often one therapist is
treating several patients at the same time, so there is less one-on-one
personal attention. Or you will see one physical therapist at your
first visit, and see many different other therapists (and sometimes
therapy assistants or aides) at subsequent visits. This compromises
consistency and quality of care.
Because at Valley
Sports Physicians we do no rely solely on our physical therapy for our
income, we can afford to focus more on the quality of care. You will
see the same therapist each time. Our therapists typically spend 40
minutes or more in one-on-one treatment—you’ll get quality care each
time. And this often enables us to see you less frequently and for
fewer visits—all with better results!
- Enhanced Education. At Valley Sports Physicians, the
physicians and therapists often attend the same rehabilitation courses
and seminars. This helps insure that the physical therapy you receive
is exactly the therapy your doctor prescribes. It also insures that
your therapist is staying up-to-date on the latest therapy approaches.
In fact, at Valley Sports Physicians we send our therapists to courses
that few other therapists in the entire state go to. Our therapy often
succeeds where others have failed.
- Greater patient convenience. There is one less stop for you to make, one less office for you to establish a relationship with.
