Free Pain Assessment and Injury Screen Available at Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers*
CHICAGO, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers–the largest physical therapist owned and managed practice in the U.S–is kicking off the New Year by offering free pain assessment and injury screens from licensed professionals trained in treating musculoskeletal conditions. All Accelerated locations throughout Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin and Arizona are providing complimentary pain and injury screens.
The 30-minute assessment is performed by a highly trained physical or occupational therapist. It encompasses a hands-on, musculoskeletal assessment of the patient’s injury or pain and includes tests for muscle strength, joint stability and flexibility. During the exam, these licensed professionals will also test for range of motion and mobility.
Depending on the results, Accelerated therapists will recommend next steps, which may include an appointment with a board-certified physician who best meets the needs of the patient. Additionally, Accelerated may offer the patient advice on strengthening exercises and non-surgical options for treatment.
Accelerated’s free injury screen offers:
- Complimentary assessment by a licensed physical or occupational therapist
- Convenient, easy scheduling
- Advice about exercises for health and wellness
- Recommended treatment options and course of care
- Physician referral, if necessary
“Instead of seeking a solution, people with pain often postpone treatment,” explains Sarah Jensen, Chief Clinical Officer for Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers. “Ignoring an injury or pain for too long can cause more harm. By offering patients a free screening, we can detect problems and send patients to appropriate professionals for proper treatment.”
To schedule a free injury screen, call 877-97-REHAB or log on to www.acceleratedrehab.com. Patients will receive an appointment within 48 hours at their nearest Accelerated location.
*Free injury screenings are not available for federally funded payers
