Compassionate care for your unique needs
Life can change in a matter of minutes. Our Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation - Outpatient Therapy team is here for those times when the unexpected happens. We provide compassionate and expert care to help you return to the activities that matter most to you.
Whether you are new to physical therapy or trying treatment again for ongoing pain, our therapists are ready to improve your quality of life. We treat patients with a variety of therapy needs, including:
Communication — whether it’s between the patient and the therapist, two therapists or the therapist and doctor — is a vital piece of physical therapy. We want everyone to be up-to-date about the plan of care and how therapy is progressing. We’re all on the same team and together, we will work to achieve your goals.
What you can expect
Our team focuses on caring for each patient and reaching his or her goals. At your first appointment, our physical therapist will ask about your injury, home environment, activity level and interests. We’ll ask about your goals, too. Do you want to be able to pick up your grandchild? Do you want to start running again? Or would you like to enjoy cooking dinner without pain?
We will spend time listening and documenting the information you provide. This information will help create a roadmap for your treatment and, most importantly, get you back to daily life.
Your physical therapist will also check your strength and flexibility. During that first appointment, our goal is to provide information about:
- Your injury
- Your treatment plan and how it will help you
- How many appointments you can expect for your treatment
We often begin treatment during your first appointment, which will be 45-60 minutes.
During physical therapy, we will improve your quality of life and get you back to the activities you enjoy.
