Aside from more time, why is treatment with Dr. Cowell better than any other Physical Therapy?

Dr. Cowell is committed to finding the true cause of your pain, providing a plan of care to address all of your needs and provide you with a recovery plan that you can perform at home so that you can reach your goals as quickly as possible. You are treated as an individual, the region that hurts is looked at as well as the rest of the body.

Treatment is a team effort between Dr. Cowell and yourself. Physical therapy is not to be treated like a quick fix, however most patients feel better after their first visit and most patients are seen once a week for about 8 weeks compared to three times a week for 6-12 wks as practiced in many health care settings.

Each patient is given a recovery plan which includes customized self-treatment techniques, activity modification strategies and corrective exercises. You will receive a specialized treatment program that will give you a lasting solution to your problem so that you can avoid medications, injections, surgery and return to your active lifestyle.

What can I expect from a visit with Dr. Cowell?

The first visit will include a comprehensive full body evaluation, a plan of care to account for all of your needs and access to a customized self treatment plan. Expect the source of your problem to be identified and addressed and be provided with tools to address it when at home. Expect to have more than one region of the body to be assessed as most problems are interconnected. Expect to have world class attention provided to you and your problem and each visit you will be swiftly assessed and the plan of care modified to account for the specific needs of that day. Expect to start taking the first steps toward your goals.

How long does each visit last?

Each visit is between 45 and 75 minutes.

How many visits will I need?

Many of my patients only need between 3 and 10 visits for most conditions. However I cannot determine how many visits you will need until I can see you move and find out what is going on.
