VaultMR supports National Physical Therapy Month. Physical Therapists create positive patient outcomes for recovery and rehabilitation. And before you confuse physical therapy with occupational therapy, or think they’re interchangeable, keep in mind what a physical therapist does according to the American Physical Therapy Association:
- Diagnose and manage movement dysfunction and enhance physical and functional abilities.
- Restore, maintain, and promote not only optimal physical function but optimal wellness and fitness and optimal quality of life as it relates to movement and health.
- Prevent the onset, symptoms, and progression of impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities that may result from diseases, disorders, conditions, or injuries.
Physical Therapy is a dynamic profession that progresses just as much as the times do. In recent memory, physical therapy has included creative sources of treatment such as this instance where Pokemon Go was used to motivate kids to keep up with treatment.
VaultMR’s own VP of Clinical, Nikki Ralston, has over 25 years of physical therapy experience and has been a crucial team member of the post-acute care EHR.
“I am able to make a positive difference in patient’s lives which is incredibly rewarding, said Ralston. “Every patient is different from their treatment to their personality. Witnessing a patient leave in optimal wellness is the biggest reward I could ask for in this profession.”
This National Physical Therapy Month, VaultMR wishes to thank our physical therapist on staff and physical therapists for the exceptional care they provide to patients.
VaultMR is an electronic health care platform for physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and nursing.
