Upon arrival to Advanced Medical Therapy, you will complete a detailed interview, brief physical exam, and a comprehensive review of your medical history. With this, an individualized exercise and health improvement plan will be designed to help you meet your personal education and exercise goals.
Our knowledgeable therapists have more than thirty years of experience providing exceptional service to patients in outpatient facilities. At AMT, every patient receives individualized attention during a one-on-one evaluation session. From there, we develop a customized plan of treatment to meet the desired goals of our patients: Restoring pain free movement, strength, health and function.
Often times people ask us what the difference is between an Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. The easiest way to describe the difference between Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy is that Physical Therapy treats a patient’s actual impairment, while Occupational Therapy treats that impairments action. A Physical Therapist works on improving the impairment itself by increasing mobility, aligning bones and joints or lessening pain.
An Occupational Therapist helps the patient complete necessary everyday tasks with the impairment. Doing so may involve applying new tools and techniques. For patients participating in the Pulmonary Rehabilitation program, your oxygen levels will be monitored and your blood pressure and heart rate will be checked as needed. In addition, at each visit we will ask you about signs and symptoms of pulmonary distress, and review your progress.
