Since opening in 2002, Momentum Physical Therapy has always focused on serving the needs of all members of the community of all ages and ability. Delivering the highest level of physical therapy, delivering the highest level of customer service available, and being a great place to work are the main parts of our formula for success.
We have also served our community by supporting local non-profits, providing our expertise at local events, and are very excited about a new partnership formed to help serve a specific population of our patients and community.
People living with arthritis make up a large portion of our patient population and community, and they need as many resources as possible. Roughly 1 in every 3 adults (aged 18-64) are diagnosed with some form of arthritis. Arthritis is also one of the most common chronic conditions among chronic users of opioids in the U.S. and is also the leading cause of disability among U.S. adults.
The Arthritis Foundation provides numerous services, which include 1) connecting people together with numerous peer groups, 2) providing the latest and greatest research, tips, and tricks to make everyday life easier, 3) offering one-on-one access to experts at any time, and 4) contributing to further the treatment of arthritis by tracking progress of patients and measuring efficacy of treatments and strategies they are using.
This partnership is a natural fit, as physical therapy is heavily researched and the evidence is overwhelmingly supportive of physical therapy being an effective treatment for arthritis. Research shows that physical therapy is proven to decrease flare-ups, increase mobility, decrease pain, and improve function in patients with arthritis.
Momentum is thrilled to help the patients we treat by connecting them with the vital services available from the Arthritis Foundation. Momentum is also eager to contribute by serving as experts at Arthritis Foundation events and connect groups, helping boost the number of assessments tracked to improve research on arthritis, and doing everything we can to work with the Arthritis Foundation to help our arthritis community improve their quality of life.
