It's that time of year again where you make your New Year's resolution, so why not make one regarding your health and physical well-being? One of the biggest misconceptions about physical therapy is that it is only necessary after a surgery. This is completely inaccurate! Your pain, discomfort, weakness and much more can be fixed through physical therapy and actually assist you in avoiding surgery all together. Physical therapists are trained through extensive graduate and postgraduate coursework to identify the root cause of pain and prescribe you with the most effective treatment plan possible. With numerous treatment techniques or "tools" available in the physical therapists' "toolbox", we are equipped to handle many physical concerns you may have.
The physical therapists at Professional Rehabilitation Services are constantly adding new treatment tools and techniques to an already extensive list to ensure the highest quality care for you. Every time you walk through the door at any of our eight offices, whether it's your first visit, or you have been with us for 10+ years, you are treated as a unique "project." The word project is not intended to have a negative connotation, however to imply that any physical limitation you may have is fixable if addressed in an appropriate manner. Don't let your physical health become a "project" that you put off until another time.
We work hand-in-hand with you every visit to correct, modify, and adjust your treatment plan so that it works for you. There is not a manual on how to fix back pain or make a headache disappear, so we are constantly doing what works for you and what corrects the problem. An advantage of coming to a Professional Rehabilitation Services location is that when you come see one of our physical therapists, you are actually accessing all eight clinicians. What do I mean by that? Well, instead of working as competitors, we work as a team and can bounce treatment ideas and evidence based practice techniques off of each other when a "project" (your physical health) is complex and may not follow a standard pattern.
We have recently added two new offices located in highly desired communities in Myrtle Beach; the Market Common and Carolina Forest, allowing you easier access to the care you deserve, close to home. You are in control of your health care so choose to fix it right the first time and AVOID "living with" pain or weakness. Make this New Year's resolution happen and don't let another "project" get put off until another time.
At Professional Rehabilitation Services, we treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions using the latest in evidence-based therapies provided by highly credentialed physical therapists. Professional Rehabilitation Services has eight convenient locations in Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, Surfside Beach, Market Common, Myrtle Beach, Carolina Forest, Conway, and Little River.
