Marshfield Physical Therapy brings an aggressive, educational approach to rehabilitating patients' injuries. We recognize that our patients want to recover from their injuries as quickly as possible.
Rather than sitting home, patients want to be at work, at school, playing sports, enjoying activities with their children and the like.
Our approach includes a thorough initial assessment, focusing on a detailed history and a complete analysis of the patient's condition. We evaluate not only the area of symptomatic complaint, but also all related movement areas in both the spine and extremities.
Upon completing this initial assessment, we present a plan of action to the patient. This plan is designed to help the patient regain normal movement and function as quickly as possible.
We realize that, just as important as the therapeutic decisions, is the relationship between the physical therapy staff and the patient. This relationship is vital in helping the patient achieve maximum results. For this reason, we work hard to provide an "environment of care," in which we strive to educate, and empower the patient to manage his or her condition.
Our physical therapy is exercise-based. While we use physical agents such as massage, ultrasound and electrical stimulation to relieve acute pain, it is the application of appropriate, progressive exercise that achieves the desired long-term solution to the problem.
