You can get excellent physical therapy on the go. Here’s what you should know about it.

by | Jun 25, 2021 | Sports Injuries

It’s not just completely possible to get physical therapy on the go; when you work with a licensed physical therapist, it’s every bit as effective as an in-office approach. With the countless responsibilities, tasks, and errands that populate our calendars every day, it can be difficult to work in weekly commutes to yet another location – even for something as important as physical therapy. Purpose PT’s founder and physical therapist, Dr. Ken Clark, has designed a mobile approach to physical care that empowers patients to strive toward their best health in whatever setting works best. This method isn’t just more convenient; it’s also extremely effective. Today, we’re going over what mobile therapy is, how it works, and why it’s such a great option for individuals who have a busy schedule. Let’s get started.

Physical Therapy for the 21st Century

Every year – and especially since the last year – more and more people are learning that in-office work isn’t always a necessity. That extends to services that were previously confined to specific settings. As more and more people have transitioned to remote or flexible work environments, it’s become evident that solutions in other service areas need to catch up to this model of adaptability. Why shouldn’t that include physical therapy? People are busier than ever: between work, childcare, home maintenance, and personal appointments, factoring in another regular commute can be tricky, at best (and altogether impossible at worst).

Physical therapy – especially physical therapy that’s preventive or intended to treat an old, non-debilitating injury – is extremely important for overall health. It’s also unfortunately easy to put off due to a jam-packed schedule. Mobile physical therapy removes the question of travel from the solution, allowing patients to receive the care they need without disrupting their daily routines.

Mobile Physical Therapy Explained

No two physical therapists are identical, meaning that there are bound to be variations between different mobile physical therapy plans. At Purpose Physical Therapy, the mobile approach to care hinges entirely on flexibility. Dr. Clark meets his patients at whatever location works best for them, whether it’s a home, office, gym, park, or any other space that’s conducive to movement and exercise. He brings all of the equipment and materials necessary for an effective, results-driven workout that’s tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals. If all you have is an hour in the middle of your workday to get your physical therapy treatment in, we can work with that. If you’re looking to get your mobility training in between loads of laundry at home, that’s doable, too. There is no single location where physical therapy becomes inherently more or less effective; what matters is the competency of your doctor, the specificity and efficacy of your treatment plan, and your willingness to dive into the exercises you need to make major progress.

Is It Right For You?

If you’ve been looking for a physical therapist but have struggled with finding an opening in your calendar – or simply don’t want to commute regularly to your physical therapist’s office – then the mobile approach is an excellent option for you. By receiving care in the setting that works best for you, you’ll be able to get started right away. By working with a doctor who tailors their treatment plan to your unique profile, activity levels, and mobility goals, you’ll embark on a results-driven journey to optimizing your physical health for years to come.
Getting great physical therapy on the go is entirely doable – all you have to do is map out your goals and get started. If you’d like to see where you are and create a customized plan to get where you need to be, we’ve got you covered. Click here to get an exclusive offer on your initial evaluation with Dr. Clark.
