Physical therapists provide services that help you restore function, regain motor skills, prevent/limit permanent physical disabilities, and improve mobility and strength.
Physical therapists focus on the evaluation and treatment of health problems resulting from injury, disease, or congenital conditions, with an emphasis on movement dysfunction.
Depending on your specific needs, physical rehabilitation at Oregon Aquatic and Rehab Center can be completed in just a few appointments or a more extensive process. Because you'll achieve the best results if you take an active part in your treatment, you should have an understanding of the process from start to finish.
Step #1 - Verification
You'll receive a referral or prescription from your doctor. You can then either give us a quick call or walk in to schedule your evaluation. You'll need to submit your insurance information at this time. Once we verify your benefits, we'll discuss your financial responsibilities before any treatment begins.
Step #2 - Evaluation
At your scheduled evaluation, you'll meet with your licensed physical therapist. You'll identify your goals and what type of treatment will help you reach these goals. Treatment at this stage may include pool rehab to assist with stiff and swollen joints. Recommended treatment may include aquatic rehab or, when possible, an exercise program that can be completed at home.
Step #3 - Treatment
At the beginning of your treatment, your therapist will work with you to ensure that you're completing the exercises correctly and safely. As your custom program progresses, you'll become more independent. The goal is to get you to the point where you can complete your home program at home.
Throughout your treatment, your therapist will be educating you about your condition or the limitations you may be able to overcome. You'll be asked for your feedback throughout treatment to ensure you're reaching your desired goals.
Step #4 - Discharge
Once you have reached your goals or are able to continue on your own with your home physical therapy program, you'll be discharged. You're always welcome to contact us following your treatment with any questions or concerns you may have.
Those who suffer from degenerative conditions may find that their range of motion is becoming more limited over time. Aquatic rehab may assist those who have pain from arthritis in the shoulder, elbow, knee, and hand by reducing swelling and taking pressure off joints. Treatment can provide pain relief and even help improve the patients' range of motion.
WOMEN'S HEALTH TREATMENT
We offer custom physical rehabilitation plans for women who are suffering from osteoporosis and core strengthening. We also work with moms-to-be suffering from back pain, hip pain, and balance issues caused by difficult pregnancies.
INJURIES & ORTHOPEDIC CONDITIONS
Patients who suffered injuries in car accidents, sports accidents, or other traumatic events may have a reduced range of motion, reduced strength, and pain. Our therapists can assist with strength training and aquatic therapy to help patients in their recovery from broken bones, amputations, and tendon repairs.
Physical therapy is also a valuable treatment for neurological disorders such as Parkinson's Disease, spinal cord damage, and gait problems. We also provide treatment for stroke patients. The goal of treatment, which may include pool rehab, is to improve the patients' quality of life and give them back their independence.
