An Evidence-Informed And Whole-Person Approach To Your Recovery and Return To Doing What You Love

What is physical therapy? 

Physical therapy Salt Lake City is an evidence-based approach to identifying and treating a movement dysfunction.

Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education.

Physical therapists diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to people at the end of life. Many patients have injuries, disabilities, or other health conditions that need treatment.

Physical therapists also care for people who simply want to become healthier and to prevent future problems.

Physical therapists examine each person and then develop a treatment plan to improve their ability to move, reduce or manage pain, restore function, and prevent disability.

Physical therapists can have a profound effect on people’s lives. They help people achieve fitness goals, regain or maintain their independence, and lead active lives.

What will a physical therapy session at Mindful Movement look like? 

A Mindful Movement Physical Therapy program will include a thorough physical therapy evaluation to find the cause(s) of the movement dysfunction, pain, or decline in function, not just focus on symptom management.

The first portion of your physical therapy evaluation will be held online via Zoom to go over applicable questionnaires and measures Dr. Emily uses to understand where you are in your health journey. This will be a 30 minute meeting to discuss your pertinent medical history, lifestyle choices, personal goals, questionnaires, and outcome measures.

The second part of your initial assessment will be in person (or virtual if you choose), and will focus on the movement portion of the evaluation.

After the evaluation, you can expect Dr. Emily to provide education on your condition within her scope of practice,  and build a program based on your goals and to get you back to doing what you love. Your program will be sustainable with your lifestyle.
