Welcome to Atrium Physical Therapy
OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE YOUR DAY BETTER!
It’s simple and short but that’s it! Making your day better is our top priority. We do this using therapeutic techniques, a supportive and positive treatment environment, and a strong focus on education. While other therapists often find it difficult to establish a balance between time to treat, educate, instruct in exercise, teach self-help tools and answer the patient’s questions, we are passionate about and fully committed to the belief that patient education is the most crucial part of the treatment process.
We’ve developed an understanding of what it is in our approach to which people respond. Patient education sends the message that we completely understand our patient’s condition and what it takes to make them feel better. Patients have said to us “no-one has ever explained that to me” hundreds of times. We give our patients a set of tools to use in their daily activities to continue their treatment long after they have completed a formal treatment regimen.
A 2016 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) estimates that over 50 Million Americans live with chronic pain and that high-impact chronic pain affects approximately 20million Americans. Therapy offers a solution without negative side effects.
Seniors and those approaching their golden years take balance issues seriously. THE CDC reports, 1/3 of all U.S. adults 65 and older experience a fall each year, with up to 30 percent suffering moderate to severe injuries.
Our goal is to provide quality, patient-focused care in an environment in which the client’s needs are of utmost importance and attention to detail is paramount. We work with patients individually, helping them achieve an active, healthy, and pain-free lifestyle. If you live in Las Cruces or surrounding communities, Atrium Physical Therapy is the place for you. Call us today!
