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.
At Phoenix, we do not take our patients for granted unlike the hospital or physician-owned physical therapy clinics that are so common today. We value each and every patient and always try to bring our “A” game with each and every visit to achieve the best outcomes for every patient we treat. Our success is very dependent on “word of mouth” referrals from prior satisfied patients and the physicians that refer them to us.
