Physical Therapy Imaging Access
One advantage to having physical therapy as part of Sansum Clinic's services is the easy access to patient information and x-rays, MRIs and CT scans. Available online over a secured server, the therapist has immediate access to the image of the bone and fracture thereby appreciating an individual's injury to a greater extent.
This access allows them to better formulate the treatment approach. Additionally, the therapist can access the recorded audio comments the physician has made concerning the injury, allowing ever-greater precision and coordination in treatment.
Physical Therapy Referrals
We treat all types of patients who have been prescribed physical therapy, those referred to us by Sansum Clinic as well as outside physicians. Our comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitative services include thorough evaluations for each new issue and individualized treatment plans that incorporate your physician's and our physical therapist's evaluations.
