Medstar Monday - Week 6

Physical Therapy

October is physical therapy month! Physical therapists are board-certified, licensed,clinically trained musculoskeletal experts able to evaluate and treat various sports medicine injuries, dysfunctions and ailments. When you sustain an injury, on or off the field, your doctor will likely refer you to a physical therapist to provide manual therapy, education, exercise and sport specific training in order to return to your sport. Depending on the severity of your injury, a course of physical therapy could last weeks to months. During that time, you will likely work with a physical therapy assistant (PTA) whose primary role is direct patient care and daily follow up treatment under the direction and supervision of the licensed physical therapist. PTAs will not perform evaluation, diagnosis, re-evaluation and discharge planning. MedStar Health is proud to offer physical therapy services at 58 locations throughout our network. MedStar physical therapists also provide a number of specialty services including, but not limited to, blood flow restriction training, dry needling, cupping, Alter G, video analysis for runners and overhead throwers, ACL prevention and return to play programs and advanced concussion management. The collaborative, team approach along with these distinctive treatment options from our MedStar Health experts, will get you back on the field safely and efficiently.
