We Want to Help You Get Back to the Life You Want!
Your goals matter to us. To achieve them, consistent and continuous treatments are crucial. Our primary objective is to help you succeed and resume the activities of your life. Physical Therapy effectiveness requires commitment and effort, including adherence to your home exercise program. Building strength and endurance often necessitate more time and dedication than formal sessions with your physical therapist. For any questions about your treatment, feel free to ask. The more you communicate with your therapist, the more engaged you will be in your treatment plan. Your success in treatment relies on teamwork, and you are the most vital member of our team!
What to Expect
Our goal is to deliver the highest quality and convenient patient care. We pride ourselves on hiring qualified, experienced therapists and staff who will listen to your specific goals and concerns. A customized treatment plan will be created to address your needs and goals.
There are three important components of your physical therapy program:
- Initial Evaluation:
- Musculoskeletal evaluation to identify the cause of your pain and limitations.
- Subsequent Visits:
- Designed to decrease pain, increase strength, and improve fitness.
- Discharge Visit:
- Graduation, including a review of specific home exercises for maintenance. A report will be sent to your doctor regarding your progress.
We maintain constant communication with your physician, collaborating on patient-specific protocols to ensure optimal outcomes. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care tailored to your specific needs, aligning with the goals set with your healthcare providers.
During your first visit, you will be paired with one of our professionally trained therapists who will guide you throughout your therapy treatments. This appointment, lasting about an hour, aims to get to know you, evaluate the source of your musculoskeletal problem, and establish the goals you want to achieve through physical therapy.
Mild swelling or soreness may be experienced post-evaluation, as we ask you to demonstrate your capabilities.
What to Wear to Physical Therapy
Wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing and closed-toe shoes, preferably athletic wear and sneakers.
As a courtesy, South Texas Spinal Clinic will bill your insurance company for provided services. We attempt to verify your insurance before the initial evaluation. Co-pays, co-insurance, and deductible amounts are your responsibility and are due at the time of service.
We discourage cancellations to maintain effective treatment. Consistent and continuous treatments are crucial for achieving your goals. Since your appointment is specifically scheduled for your needs, we require 24 hours’ advance notice for cancellations. In case of a cancellation within less than 72 business hours or a No-Show, a visit cancellation fee may apply.
