Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Services
Physical therapy services at Active Edge Physical Therapy are cutting edge and evidence-based. Physical therapy and rehabilitation services are provided by physical therapists licensed with the State of Oregon. Therapy services will be in accordance with state law and the guidelines of the Oregon and American Physical Therapy Associations. Treatment will be based on medical necessity with a referral from a physician. Direct Access, an option based on your specific insurance, also allows for self-referral to physical therapy with therapy for sixty days prior to follow-up with a physician.
In keeping with the guidelines of the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice published by the APTA, patients will receive services including an Evaluation, Assessment and Treatment Plan. Upon completion of the Initial Evaluation the patient will have a physical therapy diagnosis and will have functional goals in place to direct physical therapy intervention. Therapeutic interventions may include a combination of manual treatments, physical exercise, patient education and physical modalities directed toward correcting the patientís physical limitations. For a more detailed list of specific interventions see Physical Therapy Interventions in the Supporting Documents Appendix. Patient progress will be reassessed throughout therapy with physical testing of impairments, functional abilities and with self-report outcome questionnaires (see Outcome Questionnaires in the Supporting Documents Appendix).
Injury Prevention & Performance Programs
ACL Prevention Program
The ACL prevention program was designed by physical therapist Dan Morlan based on the latest research in the area of ACL injury and rehabilitation. The program is designed to help athletes avoid the traumatic experience of an ACL tear and the painstaking recovery that follows. The program consists of two sessions including: (1) Orthopedic and Functional Assessment of the athlete with a view to assessing presence of predisposing factors for ACL tears; (2) Education of the mechanism of ACL tears and how to avoid the predisposing factors that lead to ACL tear as well as review of a personalized ACL Prevention Program. Ongoing training and/or physical therapy interventions may be provided based on the findings of the ACL Prevention Assessment.
Sport-specific Personal Training
As a former personal trainer and with the advanced training knowledge gained with physical therapy education, Dan is the ideal partner for achieving your fitness and athletic goals. He specializes in sports performance and injury prevention as well as achievement of a healthy and active lifestyle. Personal training will be focused towards your individual goals and will incorporate functional training and injury prevention components based on the findings of an initial Functional and Orthopedic Assessment. Individual and group Personal training is available as single sessions and as packages.
