DIAGNOSTICS FOR PT

Improved patient results

SCHEDULE A DISCOVERY CALL

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS ARE PERFORMED ON PATIENTS, WITH AN INCREASE IN ACCURATE DIAGNOSES, POTENTIAL TREATMENT, AND RESULTS

You became a physical therapist because you wanted to help people. You worked hard to get there, and then you discovered that you had good days and bad days, patients who were easy to treat, and patients where you just couldn’t quite solve the puzzle of their condition.

Now imagine what it would be like if you had access to state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that would help you find the correct source of your patient’s pain or discomfort, and design a course of therapy that would result consistently in a favorable outcome.

IMPROVED RESULTS

Accurate diagnostic testing can help create
more effective treatment plans that lead to better outcomes

Your patients look to you to find the cause of their problems. They trust that you will get to the root of the problem quickly.

With the diagnostic testing equipment available from Hands-on Diagnostic Services, you can do just that. These tests provide ways to:

  • Evaluate electrical impulses in muscles and nerves and see whether these impulses are firing correctly
  • Locate the true cause of dizziness or balance problems
  • Evaluate potential spinal or neuromuscular damage, or damage to optic or auditory nerves
  • View soft tissue, cartilage and bones with a sonogram image, which is safer and more cost-effective than many other imaging tools

HODS can help you to help your patients. And at the end of the day, that’s what you’re going for, right?

HEAR IT FROM OTHER PTs

Here are some words from other Physical Therapists

After receiving my initial training under HODS in EMG, I was able to really help a new patient. She was an osteoarthritic knee patient who also complained of pain that radiated from the knee to the 4th toe. We weren’t certain whether her pain was from was a peripheral nerve injury or nerve root problem. After EMG we were able to confirm an L5 nerve root injury, provide focused treatment to the lower lumbar spine, and eliminate her radiating symptoms in 2 visits, then completed her care for the arthritic knee after clearing that. Great success to eliminate her pain so quickly through the guidance of EMG, and not just make a “best guess” approach to PT treatment.

Nathan Shields, PT

I got involved with HODS because we were looking for a solution to the problem with reimbursements. With HODS, we could improve patient outcomes and help our staff make more money while increasing our income.

For example, if we had a patient who came in with “rotator cuff” diagnosis without identifying the specific muscle involved, we would do Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and we would be able to be more specific with our Therapy. All of these tests allow us to better treat the patients. I really feel like we are ahead of the field.

We’ve been fighting with reimbursements, we’ve been fighting with declining reimbursements and it is very easy to get frustrated and wonder, how am I going to survive? Well, bringing in diagnostics is not only in line with APTA’s 2020 vision of PTs as truly autonomous practitioners, but from a financial prospective, puts me more in control of my financial picture because diagnostics add a new revenue line into my PT practice and allows me to expand while helping my patients get better.

HEAR IT FROM PHYSICIANS

Here are some words from other Physicians

I trust the Physical Therapy team of Dr. Kostopoulos providing accurate diagnostic testing results for my patients. The competency level of the physical therapists who perform the various tests exceeds any of my expectations.

Coupling the physical therapy training with EMG training is actually ideal because it helps them actually talk to the patient and figure out what test the could do and interact with the ordering physician to really determine what’s the best test and what the beast outcome should be.

Diagnostic testing performed by competent, HODS trained physical therapists have made a difference in my practice, helping me manage my patients more effectively.
