Performance Medicine & Sports Therapy (PMST) is now introducing The Recover with Purpose System (RPS). RPS is designed to combine the structural, functional, and corrective techniques for a faster recovery to you as the patient. PMST providers will implement RPS in order to get to the underlying cause of your injury. This ensures effective results and, most importantly, faster results to get you back in the game.
RPS is a phased approach to injury. We believe that injuries need to be treated in the correct sequence of order, on a comprehensive scale. We take every aspect into consideration when assessing an injury. A PMST provider will evaluate your needs and assess which phase you fit into. You will then be treated based on your real-time needs, ensuring that you are receiving the correct treatment at the correct time.
Let’s look at how our recovery system is different than the other physical therapy programs out there:
This phase starts the moment you make an appointment at PMST and it involves two very important aspects:
A. What is going on? The correct diagnosis is crucial. It is the cornerstone of RPS, answering this question gives valuable information to which part of the RPS model you fall into. The more precise this is, the quicker you are back in the game.
B. Pain management. We ensure we get your pain under Control.
Structure (bone) and function (muscle). The relationship between the body’s structure and function is such that the two are intertwined. PMST providers look in-depth into what the body is doing, and they then analyze its movement. Structure is what most people think of as a traditional chiropractic care. Structure looks at what the bones are doing, and it the joints are moving correctly. This is where the traditional chiropractic stops. Function then deals with the body’s soft tissue, making sure it too is functioning correctly. PMST providers have advanced training in many soft tissue techniques, structure and function going hand in hand when treating injuring. This approach results in high outcomes.
Injuries can cause certain muscles to shut down, forcing other muscles to become overworked. This compensation pattern can create pain or tightness. A RPS provider will ensure the neuromuscular connection associated with your injury are firing. They will then provide you with some homework. Think of this as prep work for phase 4.
We take this phase ver seriously, as it is the final step to getting the athlete or weekend warrior back in the game. Phase 4 is an individually tailored, customized program to fit your specific goals. This is based on a thorough examination, identifying your stability or strength impairments. In the SS phase, you will receive goal-oriented, sport specific PT to get you back to optimal performance.
