Consult with a Physical Therapist at Florida Medical Clinic
A physical therapist is a medical professional who helps manage a wide range of conditions through physical medicine and rehabilitation. Increasing mobility is often a primary area of focus, as is disability prevention and pain management. In many cases, physiatrists can help patients acclimate to physical limitations, while maximizing the tasks that they can successfully complete. Florida Medical Clinic’s experienced physical therapists work hand in hand with our family doctors, orthopedic surgeons, and other specialty physicians to provide patients with comprehensive, individualized care.
At Florida Medical Clinic, patients can consult with a physical therapist to discuss treatment options for many different conditions, including:
- Sports injuries
- Bone and soft tissue disorders
- Nerve damage (neuropathy)
- Muscle damage (myopathy)
- Broken bones
- Ligament sprains
- Chronic pain syndromes
Using pain management and rehabilitation techniques, a physical can help patients achieve a variety of goals, such as improving their range of motion or reducing myofascial pain. Our physical therapists practice today’s latest treatment options, including massage, soft tissue mobilization, and manipulation. Our physiatrists can also prescribe patients at-home exercise routines to further improve their physical abilities, and also recommend adaptive equipment such as mobility aids.
When a patient visits a physical therapist at Florida Medical Clinic, his or her electronic medical record is immediately updated with test results, treatment plans, and other pertinent information. This record is accessible by all of our physicians and specialists, ensuring a seamless continuity of care at every visit. Should a physical therapist recommend that a patient consult with an orthopedic surgeon, neurologist, speech pathologist, or other specialty care provider within Florida Medical Clinic, there will be no need to transfer records or obtain referrals.
