WE GET PATIENTS BETTER

 

Standardized outcome measures provide a common language with which to evaluate the success of physical therapy interventions. Outcome measures are taken at your first visit, throughout an episode of care (to ensure progress is being made), and at the completion of treatment. These measurements are a critical piece in determining which intervention will provide the best clinical care for your unique pathology.
