Fort Bend Rheumatology on-site Physical Therapy
Fort Bend Rheumatology is one of the only rheumatology practices in the state of Texas with a physical therapist on-site. This unique set up offers our patients with advanced arthritis and other chronic musculoskeletal conditions to work with both the therapist and doctor to tailor therapies for the optimal benefit of each patient. Our physical therapist can treat a variety of conditions including joint and muscle pain, balance difficulties, deconditioning and more.
Patients with advanced arthritis and other chronic musculoskeletal conditions have often become discouraged after going through therapy at facilities geared towards less chronic conditions such as sports injuries.
Other orthopedic outpatient therapy can be too vigorous for patients with chronic arthritis, and can leave patients hesitant to try therapy again.
Our Physical therapist here on staff with FBRA will first evaluate your current level of function with a thorough history and physical exam. She then will work with you to design a personalized treatment plan that addresses your movement impairments. By having an in-house physical therapist it allows for a more efficient referral process and collaboration between your provider, your physical therapist, and you.
Our main goal at Fort Bend Rheumatology is to improve your quality of life by easing pain and improving function.
