Arthritis can be the result of a previous injury or general aging and is a very common condition treated in physical therapy. A Physical Therapist can develop a movement plan to help keep you active or become active once again, whether you are returning to sports and recreational activity or general activities of daily living around the home and in the community. It is also a non-invasive alternative to procedures such as joint replacement surgery, which may not yet be appropriate for you in some cases.
An individualized plan of exercises is developed by your Physical Therapist based on your pain and your personal goals. These exercises are designed to improve flexibility, strength, coordination, and balance to achieve optimal physical function. They can show you how to properly use assistive devices such as walkers and canes and recommend different treatment options, such as braces and splints to support joints, shoe inserts to relieve stress on the lower extremities. Hot and cold therapy to ease joint pain and stiffness. Treatment ideas are not limited to the clinic and appropriate suggestions can be made to make modifications to your environment, such as ergonomic chairs or a cushioned mat in your kitchen, to relieve pain and improve function.
I recently completed physical therapy at Med A Quest, and felt compelled to let you know how pleased I was with the care and attention I received.
The moment you enter the door, Jennifer makes you feel welcomed, the atmosphere is inviting, and I particularly liked that there are individual treatment rooms for the more “personal” phases of treatment.
Brittany, my therapist, was compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. She supervised every exercise and continually asked about my comfort level. One of the best things Med A Quest offers is an APP that is sent to your email showing all of the exercises, with instructions, that you are asked to do in between your scheduled appointments.
I strongly recommend that if you are in need of professional/compassionate care – you call Med A Quest!
I discovered Med A Quest accidentally. I was looking for a physical therapist. When I called, their new office had not opened yet. When Med A Quest opened their doors, Med A Quest called me for my first appointment. I was one of the very first new patients at the new location in Egg Harbor Township. I am still at Med A Quest, attending three sessions a week. Even though this office is new, the physical therapists I have worked with are very skilled, knowledgeable, and professional. They know what they are doing. The support staff is impressive as well. Yes, I recommend Med A Quest if you are looking for a physical therapist.
