Joint pain? Muscle pain? Neck or low back pain? Motor vehicle accident or work (industrial) accident? Recent orthopedic surgery in need of rehab? This is what we specialize in. Physical therapists have 5 to 6 years of university education and clinical internships prior to graduating. Most programs in the United States are now a doctorate level of education – a clinical doctorate (‘DPT’) – with extensive training in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology (study of joint movement), neurology, and many of the other medical sciences.
Our physical therapists have graduated from accredited physical therapy programs and are state licensed. Mandatory continuing education is required for maintenance of licensure. Know that our physical therapists exceed the minimum required annual education hours by the state licensing authority. I guess we are nerds in that way and information thirsty. Education in movement and exercise science, orthopedic and sports specialization, manual therapy certification and post-concussion care are some of the areas our physical therapists have advanced training in.
Rest assured, at Rose City Physical Therapy your physical therapist is well trained to evaluate and treat your condition. We provide an intensive in-house mentorship and training program for all staff and hold high regard to excellence in care and case management. And if your problem is one that physical therapy isn’t appropriate for, we recognize that and will assist in getting you to the right provider to help you.
