At Action Rehab, we work as a team
within the clinic and with Juneauís medical community to assure
the highest level of quality care. The most important member of
this team is you, the patient. The outcome of your
treatment is based on your participation.
As a patient you are invited and
expected to participate in your physical therapy program. You will
be educated regarding your injury and your responsibility for
recovery. This may include home exercise techniques for improving
posture, range of motion and strength, and/or methods for
decreasing pain. Your improvement depends on your compliance.
However at no time will you be expected to participate in
activities that will worsen your condition or are beyond your
capabilities. You always have the right to refuse. Your goals are
important. Please share these with your care giver.
Your therapistís role is to
evaluate your present condition and set up a treatment program
specifically designed to meet your needs. He/she will be able to
educate you about your specific problem, carry out your treatment
plan, and provide you with written instruction for home use.
