But what does R&R have to do with physical therapy? The APTA's goal of focusing on health, wellness, and injury prevention opened up new areas of specialties for providers. At Concierge Orthopedics we focus on providing care that traditional insurance company is quick to deny. Wellness, fall prevention, caregiver instruction, and recovery are taboo when working to get coverage.
So how do we deliver? Take a look at Dr. Gregorio below demonstrating some of her goals for recovery sessions.
Recovery session goals include:
LISS low intensity steady stat cardio
multi-segmental rotation, hip and ankle focus for basketball players
