Beyond Therapy – What to do after physical therapy ends
What population is considered special needs? For our purposes, special needs is anyone who has specific problems that are not common to the average population that they need help with, such as Parkinson’s, nerve issues, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, neuropathy, post stroke, or immobility due to weakness. We have had many people that have tried every possible line of treatment before being referred to us and have found relief.
We’ve helped prepare many for knee or hip replacements by strengthening their bodies, specifically around the affected joint and also increase flexibility and blood supply. You can’t expect muscles to perform well after a surgery if they were terribly weak and tight prior to it.
Our health care is regulated by the insurance companies now and that’s when you have to take your health into your own hands. Don’t wait for your doctor to refer you to a physical therapist or your insurance to approve it. Call us at Git Fit Headquarters and let us help you right away. We are not able to accept insurance but we are able to continue treatment for as long as necessary or as long as you’d like. Physical therapists are limited on how much time they can spend with each patient, you will get a full hour of attention from one of our trainers who know many techniques to help you with your problem. We can work along with your therapist to continue your progress.
