The Power of One
At BodySense PT, your rehab is about the relationship between you and your physical therapist exclusively. Your care is not delegated to an assistant, and you don’t compete with other patients for your therapist’s attention. Focused care is better care.
The 21st Century
Healthcare has struggled to balance technology with customer service in many areas. At BodySense PT we try to use innovation to improve documentation, streamline billing, and reduce the amount of red-tape involved in your care. We are implementing digital appointment reminders this year and invite patients to use e-mail communication if convenient. But we also know where to draw the line — like never having to press “0” to speak to an operator, or call a separate agency about your bill. As complex as healthcare can be, we try to keep it simple.
Clinically, we follow the same philosophy. Physical therapy has evolved beyond the days of passive hot packs and repetitive exercise. Everything has its place, but we believe in taking your care to a higher level. We enjoy using technology to help our patients –whether via video games that enable people really “see” their movements, or using specialized tape to improve position awareness and reduce muscle spasm. We are constantly attending continuing education courses to advance our skills and integrate the most evidence-based approaches available.
Nintendo’s Wii system provides sophisticated feedback about body position and movement. In therapy, the WiiFit balance board provides real-time feedback about weight distribution and helps patients learn to self-correct imbalances.
Kinesiotape has garnered a lot of buzz with its visibility in the Bejieng and London Olympics. The techniques have been around for years, however, and are commonly used with patients to support tissue, decrease swelling, and improve muscle function.
