When it comes to choosing where to go for your physical therapy, what matters most to you and your family? Is it the location? A friendly staff? Or perhaps a specialized program? At Premier, we think all of those components are very important to consider. We also think that it’s essential to understand the way your physical therapy office and therapist approaches sustained pain relief. In other words, what’s the plan to help you? Because at the end of the day, that’s what physical therapy is all about.You’re one-of-a-kind. So is the Premier 5-Star Plan
Relieving your pain and getting you back to 100% is a personal experience. That’s why we created the 5-Star Plan, with a focus on YOU and YOUR situation. We don’t start therapy until we fully understand your unique needs and circumstances. With that knowledge, we can develop and put into action the right strategy and approach to relieve your pain, FOR GOOD!
The Premier 5-Star Plan
Step 1: Learning the Root Cause of Your Pain
After assigning you with a physical therapist that matches your unique needs and schedule, we’ll conduct a thorough examination and interview. Instead of rushing into treatment to cover up your pain, only to have it return days or weeks later, our goal is to give you a specific diagnosis. With this knowledge, we can create a personalized plan with a strategic treatment plan that leads to sustained relief.
Step 2: Receive Your Personal Treatment Plan
Once your physical therapist has completed the interview and examination process, you’ll be presented with a personalized plan. It will be unique to your condition, needs, abilities, goals, and your schedule. You’ll notice that your program is focused on monitoring progress, building strength, increasing flexibility and ultimately relieving your pain. Your physical therapist will go over the plan with you and ensure you’re comfortable with everything before moving forward. We believe that there is no such thing as a one-plan-fits-all program; therefore your plan is uniquely your own.
Step 3: Begin One-on-One Care
This is the exciting part of the program: It’s time for your physical therapist to put his or her plan for you into action! You’ll receive one-on-one instruction and attention from your physical therapist through every exercise and activity. He or she will be there to guide you and to answer any questions you may have. You may also receive some homework, like daily stretches, to ensure you stay on track.
Step 4: Track Your Progress. Adjust as Needed.
As you continue your 5-Star Plan, your physical therapist will take notes and conduct progress surveys to understand how you’re feeling, ensuring you’re on the road to recovery. For example, after a few weeks, if you’re still unable to reach a certain level of Range of Motion, your physical therapist may introduce a new exercise or extend your schedule. On the other hand, if you’re ahead of schedule, your physical therapist may shorten your schedule so you can get back to doing the things you love, sooner.
Step 5: Ensuring A Pain-Free Future
Once you’ve made it this far, our team will give you all the tools and know-how to remain pain-free for days, weeks, months, and perhaps years to come. Those tools include educational materials, home exercises, and nutritional guidance. Because sustainable relief and a happy, pain-free life for you is always our ultimate goal.
