How We Treat & Provide Care

The initial visit begins with a history of your injury or condition and how it affects your life, a review of your general health and activity level, and a discussion of your goals for therapy. The therapist then evaluates the area of your body involved to determine the nature of the issue and any factors that may have contributed to it. This evaluation may include mobility assessment, strength assessment, neurological testing, joint mobility assessment, and other tests.

Following the evaluation, you will receive treatment aimed at the source of your injury/condition. Treatment generally includes hands-on care as well as exercises to improve mobility and strength.

MORE's clinicians emphasize patient involvement in the recovery process and believe that home exercise and stretching programs, as well as education regarding self-care, injury prevention, body mechanics, posture, and ergonomic factors, are important elements of the recovery process.
