What Makes Us Different?
HEP and Educational Program
FTU’s proven educational model is the cornerstone of our therapy. Our clients understand not only what to do, but how it helps them improve their daily life. By the time the client is ready to be discharged from our program, they will be able to complete their home exercise program (HEP) independently and understand how to progress it as their needs change.
Two of our core services, Functional Exercise Therapy and Functional Aquatic Therapy, will ideally take place in one of our partnered local fitness facilities near the client’s home. This environment not only allows us to have the tools and resources needed to perform treatment, it also encourages community integration, which can have a positive effect on our clients’ lives.
In-Home Treatment Option
We provide in-home therapy services for clients still in the acute phase of their recovery, or for those that do not live near one of our partnered fitness facilities. Our goal is to work towards transitioning these clients to a community environment, where they can continue their recovery independently and benefit from community integration.
At FTU, we only provide One-on-One Treatment for clients. Our therapists will never work with more than one client during a scheduled Functional Therapy session. Our therapist will stay by the client’s side throughout the entire treatment session.
During a client’s treatment, we focus on cost containment. The price range of our services are lower than traditional physical therapy. By educating our clients, we find success in them not relapsing back into other therapies, saving money in the long term. By traveling to our clients, we are able to save transportation costs as well.
Our team is diligent about documenting treatments performed and progress of clients so that it is available to their entire care team. We strongly believe this is connected to better overall care for every client. For every client, SOAP notes, initial evaluations, progress evaluations, and plans of care are all documented and available by request.
All of our treatment is physician guided. After receiving the initial prescription from the physician, we will send a full Plan of Care for their approval. Our thorough clinical documentation and communication ensures the physician and a client’s entire team of care stays connected.
