5 Reasons Why You Need Personalized Physical Therapy
October 29, 2021
Physical therapy is a proven method for helping people of all ages who have injuries or medical conditions that limit their daily function or mobility. Having a comprehensive personalized physical therapy treatment program can help people resume their daily activities, prevent future injuries, and get people back to doing what they love.
Different from traditional physical therapy, VIP PT provides personalized and comprehensive luxury care to their patients. A comprehensive plan that focuses on the whole body, not just the area of injury or pain, ensures the whole body is getting stronger and recovering from any possible contributing factors that cause added pain. This type of physical therapy can be easily combined with other healthcare regimens, meaning your overall health will be improved.
This model creates a strong relationship between therapist and patient and provides more opportunities for open lines of communication. Working with the same patient gives therapists the ability to more accurately track the patient’s success and milestones. Treatments can be more personalized and tailored to the patient’s exact needs.
5 Benefits of Personalized Physical Therapy
- Understands the Problem
Having one-on-one sessions with a trained physical therapist gives the therapist time to really understand your needs as a patient. From a diagnosis standpoint, this helps therapists get to the root cause of the problem and your pain. When a deeper understanding is possible, a more comprehensive plan for care can be created to provide positive outcomes.2. Accurately Tracks Progress
Because our therapists are focusing solely on one patient during your session time, it is much easier to track your progress with detail. VIP PT’s personalized programs mean the same therapist works with the same patients throughout their entire treatment plan. This is very important if you are an athlete or very active and working toward specific goals to resume your desired lifestyle. Having a baseline from where you started to see how your progress is improving can get you back to doing what you love, faster. This model creates a strong relationship between therapist and patient and provides more opportunities for open lines of communication.
3. Opens Lines of Communication
The more a patient and therapist can be open and honest with each other, the more successful treatment will be. It can be unnerving when you don’t know what to expect during therapy sessions or what symptoms change throughout the course of your treatment. Being honest about how you feel during exercises or between sessions helps our therapists tailor your treatment to suit you best.
4. Tailoring Treatment Plans
The goal of each session is to improve function and mobility. Having a purpose for each session can help maximize the time you and your therapist have together. We understand that your time is precious, which is why our treatment plans are specifically tailored to your needs. This means we won’t have you do any unnecessary “warm-ups” but only things that improve bodily function or mobility. When working with a personalized therapist, they are able to correct your posture, form, and help facilitate better and more accurate movement, rather than having you do exercises alone while they treat other patients.
5. Preventing Future Injuries
We frequently see patients who are being cut off from insurance despite their treatment plan not being complete. Insurance companies care about “functionality” which often means patients leave their treatment program when only 80% finished their rehab program. However, this means patients are more likely to have a repeat injury or other injuries. Resuming daily activities or hobbies without being fully rehabilitated increases the risk for further damage and pain. The VIP PT model of personalized care and treatment educates you and focuses on getting you back to 100% in a shorter amount of time.
Not all patients should be treated equally. Our bodies move and change, and your physical therapy should reflect that. Contact VIP PT today to learn more about our personalized physical therapy programs or fill out the form below.
