Being a privately owned facility, we believe that one-on-one time with a patient is the most important thing that you can give. And it is this one-on-one devoted attention that allows us to see the amazing results we do! In a system that everyone is trying to push you out of the door, we welcome you and embrace your time.
This is a “No-Plateau” Zone!
Yes, You Read That Correctly.
Medicare released a Maintenance Therapy Program. In this program, therapists can actually see you to maintain your current state or abilities. It is no longer based on PROGRESS now, but on Skilled and Medically Necessary Therapy. Meaning that as long as therapy is skilled and medically necessary to prevent you from declining, we can continue therapy regardless of progress towards a goal.
BUT… Many therapists DO NOT know this or even know how to bill for it. So instead, they still discharge patients due to a lack of progress towards a certain goal. They tell them:
“You have hit a plateau. We need to discharge you. Here are some exercises you can do at home.”
Tired of pointless exercise recommendations?
We also relate our therapy goals to specific things that you want to get back to doing, and we tailor our treatments specifically to those goals. This is what makes therapy worth it to you. We will not just tell you to perform two sets of leg extensions at 10 reps per set with both legs, and then leave you to do them. Instead, if it is getting harder to walk around the grocery store or reach up to the top cabinet to put dishes away, then those are the things we work on — balance, endurance, strength, and flexibility to be able to do all those things.
Furthermore, most of the time we are working towards controlled, coordinated, and intentional movements. This usually doesn’t even require strength! It just requites practicing the movements and making sure the muscle has the flexibility to move the way we need it to. Sometimes it can take a while, and a lot of practice, to get the movements down.
Chances are, you also have been told things like, “You will never be able to do that again,” or “You will always need to use the wheelchair (or walker/cane).” That is simply not always TRUE.
