Pre-Prosthetic and Prosthetic Rehabilitation
We perform assessment of prosthetic fit and alignment with consideration to overall biomechanical presentation, medical comorbidities, and most importantly, functional goals of the patient. We coordinate closely with prosthetists and physicians to avoid delay in the patients' progress in rehabilitation. Our advantage over other physical therapy clinics is that our therapists are well-trained in identifying prosthetic gait deviations and upper limb prosthetic malfunction.
Our lead Physical Therapist is a multi-credentialed practitioner who is a licensed pedorthist and recently completed orthotics and prosthetics education at Northwestern University. Our therapist is well trained in identifying prosthetic gait deviations and basic upper and lower limb prosthetic dysfunction. We ensure that every patient gets the most effective and efficient physical therapy treatment in the shortest rehabilitation time possible. We keep in mind patient goals and maximize patient independence and safety at home and in the community. We coordinate closely with prosthetists and physicians to avoid delay in the patients' progress in rehabilitation. We make certain that proper documentation is in place by providing thorough evaluation to justify and rationalize the need for the prosthetic device.
