"We are here to take care of you."

"I can’t express enough how much I love Sports Physical Therapists. Within only one week of physical therapy, after many months of disability, I barely need to use my crutches anymore. I’m so pleased with the improvement that has been made. Thank you Carmelo Tenuta!"

Educated Patients Are More Successful in Physical Therapy

With the ongoing changes to the U.S. healthcare system, it’s never been more important for patients to actively participate in the management of their own health and well-being. Studies show that engaged and informed patients often report more positive healthcare experiences including high-quality dialogue with physical therapists and fewer problems with care coordination. To get the most out of physical therapy, patients should be familiar with available treatments, know how to find the best therapist for their needs, and learn to advocate for themselves. It’s also important for patients to be able to describe how a particular problem is affecting their daily lives including symptoms, loss of function, and inability to complete tasks that once came easily. How can patients play a more active role in physical therapy? A few habits of highly engaged patients include: Knowing when to seek professional help. Preparing thoughtful questions to ask a physical therapist. Being familiar with the treatment guidelines for their condition. Following through on a care plan. Proactively seeking health-related information. Today’s patients have more tools than ever at their disposal to locate the right resources, remain informed about health needs, participate in a care plan, and take ownership of their health. […]

Though highly skilled in methods that improve mobility and reduce pain following an injury, physical therapists can also play a key role in improving a patient’s mental health. Exercise, a core component of any physical therapy regimen, is known to benefit patients with mild to moderate mood disorders such as depression. Depression is an underlying condition often associated with chronic illnesses and orthopedic injuries that limit mobility and participation in daily activities. With depression affecting one in 10 Americans at some point in their lives, physical therapy is another avenue to diagnose and treat the associated symptoms. Physical activity reduces feelings of anxiety, depression and stress by improving the patient’s cognitive function and self-esteem. Moreover, studies have shown that aerobic exercise decreases overall tension levels, elevates and stabilizes mood and improves sleep. Because exercise’s mind-altering effects are temporary, however, patients should work with a physical therapist to develop a regular exercise routine to ensure continued benefits. Patients can expect to work closely with a physical therapist to develop a custom treatment plan based on a […]
