Imagine sending a referring surgeon real-time documentation showing them their patient’s improved mobility, muscle strength and reduced pain. Shoulder surgery patients results are proven and now you can share these results as well as you detailed care plan right from your EMR instantly.

Most patients who receive physical therapy after surgery experience only half as much pain within a few months, and most are free from pain after a year or two, according to a thesis presented at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. …Physical therapy should be regarded as the first course of treatment, with surgery reserved for those who do not receive adequate improvement from therapy alone. The two most common procedures are arthroscopic subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair.

    Channeling Your Inner Chuck Norris: How to Master the Art of Outcomes

    When I was growing up, I stayed at my grandparents house after school. This meant I spent the better part of my youth tuning into whatever my grandpa watched on TV. And because he watched a lot of Walker, Texas Ranger, I watched a lot of Walker, Texas Ranger. Chuck Norris was basically my afterschool nanny. (Don’t tell him I said that.) Each afternoon, I watched this karate-kicking cowboy fight off bad guy after bad guy. He …

Many of my patients are fairly complex and have a team of healthcare providers. That team may include another physical therapist, a surgeon, a pain management provider, a massage therapist, or a personal trainer. It …

    St. Mary's UMN Undergrad Completes Thesis on WebPT Influencing HEP Compliance

    We all know prescribed home exercise is a key part of patient recovery and rehab, so it can be pretty frustrating when patients do not correctly follow or comply with the prescribed program. Non-compliance with home exercise programs (HEP) can really hamper the overall goals you set for your patients. Limited progress equals additional clinic visits and ultimately higher healthcare costs. Needless to say, HEP compliance is a big deal. Lauren Baier, a biology major at St. Mary’s …
