Another week has past, and with its passing comes the third installment of our feature series where we highlight the OTs, PTs, and clinics around the country who have been doing "the work," and continue to do so...
Today we travel from New York to Texas to highlight The Hand Clinic of Austin. This hand therapy clinic manages to separate itself from the pack with the fact that before you start treatment, their patients are asked, and expected, to completely familiarize themselves with their own condition as well as the services and treatments the clinic offers, as a way to ensure everyone is on the same page when it comes to what is being provided from a service standpoint. This goes hand in hand with what the staff and team expect from their patients as well, with the primary objective being the most efficient route to success. This also benefits all parties as a way to further ensure that everyone's expectations are managed accordingly from the very beginning. Therapists provide therapy, not miracles.
According to The Hand Clinic of Austin's webpage their goal, "is to empower you with knowledge. By fully understanding your own condition, you will be better able to participate in your own recovery. We strive to create a relaxed and supportive environment. In order to fully benefit from therapy, it is important to attend therapy sessions consistently and perform your home program as prescribed by your therapist. If you feel therapy is not meeting your needs, please bring it to our attention. We’ll be happy to modify your program to ensure a successful recovery."
If you're suffering from finger pain or hand injuries, and need to see an Occupational or Physical Therapist in the Austin area, please visit the Austin Hand Clinic, and tell them FingerWeights sent you.
