Your Physical Therapist Has the Answers
Developed to provide solutions for our patients to help self-manage their issues, Ask-A-P.T. is a tool that will provide benefit to those who are affected by the rising cost of healthcare and the ever-increasing difficulty with affordable access.
Ask-A-P.T. will provide answers to questions about the musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones of the body). Some examples include:
- Someone in my family is hurt and I don’t know if I should get it checked out
- Woke up in pain and not sure if it’s serious
- Not sure whether to use ice or heat
- How high should I elevate the limb
- How long should I ice
- Will I need physical therapy
- Can I return to sports
- Should I see a doctor
- What’s better, aspirin, Tylenol or ibuprofen
- How much will it cost me to get treatment
- How long will it take for me to recover
Ask-A-P.T. is designed to provide knowledge and information that will ease your mind when you don’t know where or to whom to turn. Just imagine how much time it could save you if you knew exactly what to do to help the child that got hurt in the game. Or the comfort that it could provide your elderly parent knowing that they could get answers without having to bother or burden you one more time. How about knowing in advance if recovery was going to take long, or that icing can help a recent injury from developing problems that can slow down healing. Would this information be of help to you?
If you or a loved one could benefit from answers at your fingertips, from extra time not spent waiting in doctors’ offices, emergency rooms, or long-awaited appointments, Ask-A-P.T. could be your answer. It can give you and your loved ones piece of mind, especially if you are being affected by exorbitant health insurance premiums, high co-pays and sky rocketing deductibles. Even if you aren’t, this service will help provide you with the knowledge and the power to make informed decisions that will impact the health and well-being of your loved ones, and that in itself is an amazing value!
