Our Rehabilitation Services team provides therapy designed to maximize your qualify of life. Through physical, psychological and emotional support, we target your entire well-being. In addition to traditional physical therapy services, our team specializes in occupational, hand and speech therapy.
Physical therapy is performed by either a licensed physical therapist (PT) or an assistant (PTA) acting under the direction of the PT. Physical therapists see patients in consultation with and upon referral by the physicians with Springfield Clinic Orthopedics. Our Rehabilitation Services team is widely versed in the treatment of many common physical therapy disorders as well as specialized areas not seen in most clinics.
Because your convenience and comfort are our number one priority, state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment is available on-site in ALL of our offices. Doctors will have the highest quality diagnostic images available to determine your most appropriate treatment plan.
Our orthopedic specialists use a number of imaging techniques, including bone densitometry (DXA) scans, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and diagnostic and fluoroscopic radiography (X-rays). The majority of these imaging techniques are digital. Workstations allow the interpreting physician the ability to manipulate the images and provide a better diagnosis by magnifying areas of interest.
Digitally acquired images and reports are electronically stored and can be viewed any time by a provider within the Springfield Clinic network. Digital images can also be sent electronically to both hospitals in Springfield. Your records can also be burned to CDs or printed on film. When exams are ordered by a Springfield Clinic provider, results are sent to the patient’s electronic health record. Images are sent by mail to providers who are not members of Springfield Clinic.
