Physical therapists at Mission Physical Therapy are trained in MovementCorrection. They:
They ensure that sessions provide immediate relief with increased, more normalized motion. Sessions are clearly therapeutic, instructive, and sometimes revelatory to their patients who are anxious to return to learn more. Their patients refer family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers because they want them to get the same results that they did. Their patients tell their doctor about them and see them as a valuable resource whenever they hurt or want to improve their level of fitness.
They do simple things such as starting and ending each treatment session on time and calling their patients by name.
Though realistic about the results they can or cannot deliver, they give their patients hope with cheerfulness and a smile. (After all, what patient experiencing discouragement and pain wants to work with a distracted or grumpy therapist?!)
They work with only 1 or 2 patients an hour who see the same therapist at each session. They never hand their patients off to a tech or an aide who doesn't have the education, training, and skill to deliver exceptional care.
They never "fill the time" or try to give merely short-term relief with evidence-lacking and symptom-focused modalities, such as hot or cold packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and other remedies that may so easily be performed at home.
They make sure their patients know what to expect of each session and provide skilled training. They never give random exercises that patients can simply learn on the internet.
They never say, "No pain, no gain,” "Pain is weakness leaving the body," or "You have to hurt to get better." Neither do they teach fear-avoidance by telling the patient to skip the exercise if it hurts. They teach that pain is the body's way of telling the brain that something is wrong. They teach patients to learn from their pain and what to do to fix it.
