“Effective physical therapy works to augment the body’s natural healing processes to decrease loss of function and downtime after injury. Determining the correct approach stems from the evaluative process at the start of treatment and continued evaluation throughout the course of treatment. Determining the source of the pain and dysfunction is paramount to a successful recovery.”
Many of the physical therapists at Tidewater Physical Therapy Inc. hold Direct Access Certification through the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy.
Samantha holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
