PHYSICAL THERAPY

Your concerns and complaints about pain, mobility and lack of function are simply the starting point at Santiago Physical Therapy. A thorough assessment allows us to evaluate the problem area(s), and work toward optimizing your situation and preventing a re-occurrence.

 

We treat all muscles and bones of the body, including fractures, sprain/strains, dysfunctional postures or movement, and pain. We treat patients before and/or after surgery, after sports, motorcycle, or horse related injuries, for tendonitis, cumulative trauma, arthritis, joint replacements and for problems that seem to come on for no reason. If this is you, please call our office to see if there’s something we can do to help.

 

We use modalities and manual therapy to treat inflammation, pain and mobility issues. Therapeutic Exercise promotes strength or length deficiencies. These are some of the treatments we offer at Santiago Physical Therapy:

 

  •   Ultrasound
  •   Soft Tissue and Joint Manipulation
  •   Traction
  •   Electrical Stimulation

OUTCOMES

Santiago Physical Therapy uses a national data base company called “Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes” (FOTO). We submit to FOTO anonymous data about our patients’ progress and number of visits on a quarterly basis from a form which our patients complete. FOTO then compares our patients’ progress and number of visits to all of the similar types of patients in the nation. FOTO then rates us on a percentage basis. Our scores have far surpassed the national benchmark every quarter. This means we achieve higher outcomes for our patients in fewer visits. So, there is great VALUE in choosing Santiago Physical Therapy.

HOME PROGRAMS

Home Programs are very important to recovery.  It is what you learn and putting effort into your  own recovery that will make the biggest difference in how fast you progress.  “Form is Everything,” and doing exercises properly is very important to us and will benefit you more when doing them.

 

Confidence vs. fear is key when rehabbing from an injury or surgery.  Giving you the confidence in what you CAN do in a SAFE manner to reach your goals as fast as possible is what we’re all about.

 

Reaching your goals excites us as much as it does you.  As you progress, you will be surprised at what you CAN do, and how doing those things gives you positive results that propel you toward recovery.  We look forward to successfully partnering you back to good health!
