National Physical Therapy Month
According to the APTA “The goal of a physical therapist is to promote the patient's ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. Physical therapy is an essential element of patient care.”
The InSPIRe PT team has a wide variety of skills. A few specialties include; LSVT BIG, Dry Needling, Orthopedic related rehab, pediatric therapy, aquatic therapy, sports medicine, golf rehabilitation, neuro rehab, postural restoration, geriatric rehab and balance and gait analysis. The PT team members are also members of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Nebraska Physical Therapy Association.
Physical therapists work closely with physician and the patient during the patient’s treatment. Samantha Minnick, PT in Holdrege states ““I believe that teamwork amongst the physician, therapist, and patient is crucial for optimizing outcomes. This involves each member of the team openly communicating with one another and working at full effort towards the same goals. I listen to each patient carefully and adapt the plan of care as necessary to meet their individual needs.”
“I treat each patient in a way I would want my own family members treated. I believe communication is very important in physical therapy. I listen to my patient’s individual needs and then develop a comprehensive plan of care based on his or her diagnosis and goals. I believe ongoing communication with the patient’s physician is also essential to good quality care.” says Andrew Weides, PT, Co-owner
We would like to wish all the physical therapists and physical therapy assistants a happy PT month!
