Over the past decade managed care has drastically changed the way physical therapy services are rendered. As reimbursement declines and insurers assume more control over the direction of physical therapy services, many clinics have been forced to increase the amount of patients seen by the physical therapists. To meet these demands, physical therapists are delegating more and more patient care to less qualified ancillary personnel. This means that your patients are not receiving the one-on-one care with a licensed physical therapist that is necessary to achieve optimum treatment outcomes.
At Advantage Physical Therapy we strive to defy this trend. In our office you will receive one-on-one treatment by a licensed Physical Therapist or Physical Therapist Assistant. Our staff believes that we have a moral and professional obligation to assure each patient receives the highest level of care possible, and we are committed to doing just that. We do not allow managed care to influence the delivery of our services or our treatment philosophy, and we pride ourselves on providing the personable care that has been lost in today’s healthcare system. Though we do value the contribution that out ancillary personnel contributes to the clinic, you will see a licensed therapist every visit, and this is not always the norm in this generation of physical therapy clinics. You will never be left by yourself to “handle your own care”, as we believe the one-to-one guidance and direction is a necessary step in safe and effective rehabilitation progression.
Advantage Physical Therapy was founded on the principles of making each patient a priority and providing the highest level of care possible. We accomplish this with a veteran staff, made up of physical therapists with a minimum of 8 years experience, and by guaranteeing each patient receives the one-on-one care they deserve. The therapists are Fellowship trained in Orthopedic Manual Therapy and specialize in hand-on therapeutic interventions including spinal/ extremity manipulation, non-thrust joint mobilizations, myofascial release, dry needling, and advanced exercise prescription. We ARE NOT the “typical” PT clinic that puts every patient on electrical stimulation or ultrasound. The therapists are evidence-based and have authored/ co-authored several peer-reviewed case reports, making Advantage Physical Therapy’s clinicians the top therapists in their field to help you get better, FASTER!
We are an independent, private, locally owned practice and our years of success are based solely on providing excellent care to our patients. If given the chance, we will do all we can to exceed your expectations.
