What does this mean exactly?
In order to receive physical/occupational therapy, you need to obtain a prescription from a healthcare provider. This provider may also suggest a specific rehabilitation company or provide you with a list of physical/occupational therapists in your area. In some cases, your insurance company will guide you to the “In Network” providers that are included in your insurance plan. But, the final decision as to where you receive rehabilitation care is up to you.
Be sure to let your healthcare provider or insurance company know that Tri-State Rehabilitation and Sports Center is your first choice when it comes to rehabilitation. We participate in many insurance plans. However, if Tri-State Rehabilitation and Sports Center is not in your network, look into whether your plan has out-of-network benefits that will allow you to receive our first rate services with some level of benefit. We appreciate your interest in Tri-State Rehabilitation and Sports Center and we would love to work with you on your return to an active lifestyle.
Physical and Occupational therapists are experts in restoring movement and function. After examining the patient, therapists create comprehensive programs focused on total body care, injury prevention, as well as safe and timely returns to work, life or sports. Depending on the needs of a particular patient, physical/occupational therapist may mobilize a joint, provide soft tissue work to a muscle, or perform a corrective exercise to restore normal movement patterns and function.
A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) is an occupational therapist or physical therapist who has a minimum of five years of clinical experience, including 4,000 hours or more of direct practice in hand therapy. In addition, the Certified Hand Therapist has successfully passed a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper quarter rehabilitation. Because of changes in the profession, every CHT is required to demonstrate continued professional development and competency by recertifying every five years.
Occupational therapy is a healthcare profession that is aimed at helping individuals affected by injury or impairment to develop or recover skills so that they may regain independence in the ‘occupations’ of their everyday life, including self-care, work, and leisure. Occupational therapists specialized in evaluating and treating physical, cognitive, perceptual and functional impairments, and work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, schools, nursing facilities, and home health agencies.
Occupational therapy also plays a major role in the rehabilitation and recovery of patients who have hand or upper extremity injuries. Occupational therapists perform upper extremity evaluations, and may design and fabricate custom splints for protection or correction of injuries. They treat a variety of conditions, including hand and work-related issues, repetitive stress injuries, fractures, arthritis, nerve-related conditions, and postoperative conditions. The ultimate goal of occupational therapy is to help patients to improve their ability to participate in the activities that they most want and need to do in order to live more independent, satisfying, and productive lives.
Physical therapy is the healthcare profession that helps individuals whose movement and function are adversely affected by aging, injury, disease, or environmental factors. Together with the help of physical therapists, these patients work towards the goals of relieving pain, as well as developing, maintaining, and restoring maximum movement and functional ability.
The cornerstones of physical therapy treatment are therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, and functional training. Physical therapy, which has many specialties such as sports medicine, industrial, orthopedic, and pediatrics, is available in many settings; outpatient clinics, offices, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, extended care facilities, private homes, schools, hospitals, industrial workplaces, and fitness centers.
