Therapydia Annual Assessments for Injury Prevention

Historically, most people who decide to go to physical therapy are feeling pain or recovering from surgery. Today, more patients are learning more about PT as a wellness tool beyond relief from chronic pain and rehab from surgery. As life expectancies increase, many people are focused on the prevention of injury in order to maintain active, productive lifestyles. Similar to how you visit your dentist every year to make sure your teeth are in good shape, your physical therapist can help you fine-tune your movements to prevent injuries.

We offer a variety of Annual Assessments to identify important areas to focus on in order to reduce your risk of injury and help us choose the best wellness program to meet your goals. We will track your progress and give you exercises and tools to monitor your performance and improvement over time. We will also notify you if you fall outside of norms for your age group or if you have difficulties meeting your personal goals.annual assessment portland
