What to Expect
Our Approach to Preventative Physical Therapy
At Life’s Work, we look deeper than surface level symptoms to understand how your entire body is working as a system. This allows us to identify the underlying causes of complex pain and injuries. We can even address early-stage problems that aren’t causing pain yet.
Our “Do What Works” approach allows us to use the latest, evidenced-based practices to develop a personalized treatment plan just for you. Our commitment to kind, compassionate customer service helps our clients leave each appointment feeling motivated and excited to improve their health.
Comprehensive Physical Assessments
Our goal is to detect problems and treat them before they affect your quality of life. That’s why we developed a comprehensive, annual orthopedic physical called the AGING STRONG Assessment. It’s a full body, head to toe assessment of your health, including factors like:
- Injury risk
- Lifestyle needs around hydration, nutrition, and exercise
- Mortality risk
- Cardiovascular fitness
At the end of your 80 minute session, you’ll have a full understanding of how your body is functioning and the specific steps you can take to improve your health.
Preventative Physical Therapy Treatment
You and your physical therapist will talk about the results of your assessment together. We’ll give you individualized recommendations for exercise, nutrition, disease prevention, and actions you can take to meet your health goals.
If you’re dealing with pain, or your health assessment reveals a potential problem, we will work with you to build a personalized treatment plan to help you recover. Our emphasis on orthopedic manual therapy allows us to begin physically treating injuries at your first appointment. In fact, most clients report less pain after only one session.
Let’s work together to prevent age-related orthopedic pain, so you can age greatly, not just gracefully!
