HowWe Serve as the Coach, Offense, and Defense for Your Health

Within the past fewmonths, our clinic has undergone a swift redevelopment of how we structure patient care. We always strive to enable patients to lead the healthiest, fullest lives they can through injury prevention, education, and rehabilitation. We believe the best way to do this is by supporting our patients with specialists at every step in their journey. Of course, this all begins with the patient. They will always be the quarterback of their care. As medical professionals, we can provide patients with expert opinions and suggestions, but the ball is always in a patient’s hands. It’s up to the patient to take the advice of their“coach”and the support of their“offense and defense”tomake a difference in their lives and overall well-being. But every great quarterback and athlete has a strong coach behind them. The most decorated Olympian, Michael Phelps, was coached by Sun Devils swim coach Bob Bowman. The U.S. Women’s Soccer Teamhas Jill Ellis, a renowned soccer coach who led the team to a world championship in just her first year as coach in 2015 and once again in 2019. Meanwhile, the New England Patriots have won six Super Bowls under Bill Belichick’s tutelage. And at Stretch Physical Therapy andTotal Wellness, our patients have personal trainers. Our personal trainers act as the coaches for our weekend warrior and student-athletes as well as our patients just looking tomaintain a healthy lifestyle. Typically, the role of the personal trainer is to serve as a preventive expert who is coaching the patient on “As medical professionals, we can provide patients with expert opinions and suggestions, but the ball is always in a patient’s hands.”

getting stronger, buildingmuscle, and keeping their joints healthy. The patient learns about at-home exercise techniques, stretching, and diets that will encourage this healthy lifestyle. But sometimes systems break down. Even with prevention, injuries can happen, and that’s where our teamof physical therapists and physical therapy assistants step in. Serving as treatment and rehabilitation experts on our team, these professionals act as the defenses for our patient’s health. They provide the tools the patient needs to overcome their injury and return stronger and better than ever. In addition, they also act as the offense, offering education and additional training to teach patients about preventing injuries fromhappening again. Our quarterbacks are supported on both sides of the ball and on the sidelines by three experts that are encouraging, educating, and treating their specific needs and weaknesses. For example, when you sprain your ankle, we’re not just going to look at the ankle and ways to treat it. Your offense and defense are going to examine what mechanisms broke down and resulted in this injury, while your coach is going to teach you about proper precautions and the need for correct form. We look at the problem holistically, not just at face value. This is a method that Stretch Physical Therapy andTotal Wellness has always abided by, but with the recent addition of our Stretch and Recover Program, we are streamlining this process and will help lead patients into the program, where special offerings andmonthly packages are available to further help them recover, get stronger, and succeed. It’s always heartwarming and frustrating when we hear clients tell us that clinics or hospitals don’t do what we do. We are encouraged to know that our patients are receiving the care they deserve, but we believe every patient should be treated this way. After all, every great quarterback has a stellar offense, a strong defense, and an empowering coach backing themup.
