Approach to Healing
I had a wonderful experience with Asha. She helped rehabilitate my muscle strength after a traumatic C-Section and I was able to return to all athletics and activities I loved pre-birth. Life saving!
I met Dr. Smith after a year of receiving physical therapy without receiving any relief. What sets Dr. Smith apart from other DPTs I have visited: patience and communication! She takes her time with patients and listens to search for the most effective solutions. I would recommend Dr. Smith to anyone with pain or mobility concerns!
For 26 years I have received treatment quite a number of times from various physical therapists. Asha is one of the best physical therapists I ever had. Her intelligence, manner, PT treatment and strategies as well as her deep level of compassion truly helped me to heal. One would be very lucky to have Asha oversee them for physical therapy.
Reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation are common goals in this phase of recovery. Injury protection, elevation, appropriate medications, compression, and patient education are important.
Pain-free passive, manual therapy, active range of motion, and cardiorespiratory exercises, are indicated here. Education about pain and a positive attitude may help.
Progressive loading of healing soft tissues, the reintroduction of low-stress neuromuscular reeducation, balance training, and basic functional activities are part of this rehabilitation phase.
Progressing strengthening exercises, improving flexibility, and advanced balance exercises are part of phase 4. Resuming functional movement (e.g. sports movements) occurs in this phase.
Functional movements are progressed, a controlled re-introduction to sports or challenging environments is initiated. Continued strengthening, flexibility, balance, endurance, and goal-specific training occurs during this phase. Education and future injury prevention are discussed.
