Functional physical performance tests use a variety of physical skills and evaluations to determine:
- One’s ability to safely and fully participate in the desired level of sport, occupation, or recreation.
- One’s ability to move through three planes of movement related to motions involved in sports, occupations or exercises.
Patients who wish to return to their pre-injury physical activities benefit from functional tests.
Phoenix ensures that tests are done at the appropriate level and at the appropriate time for each patient. These tests are never done at random. We will carefully evaluate the appropriateness of each test before introducing it to the patient.
I had the pleasure of being offered a position as a facility director at the same clinic that I had once started as an aide, and 12 years later, I’m just as pleased with the company and their ideals of quality vs. quantity care. Phoenix also provides a generous yearly continuing education package as they are focused on all therapists advancing their skills in the field, and maintaining high standards for their employees. I would highly recommend working for Phoenix to any therapist, new or experienced.
