Imagine this: An elite athlete who has trained her whole life in her sport one day sustains an injury from which she must take time to recover. I mean, she’s only human after all. Or imagine that a blue collar worker who has labored for years at his job suddenly injures himself and must take time to recover. It is under these circumstances – and many others – that physical therapy comes into the picture. Well just like that elite athlete or that exemplary worker, you as a physical therapist must also be prepared for your job. You wouldn’t expect an athlete to be able to train without the proper equipment or a worker to do his job without the proper tools. Think of it as an equation: Hard work + your dedication + the right supplies = successful recovery.
Team Medical Group has all the supplies you need to ensure you can meet your patients’ recovery needs. You’ll be ready for that athlete or that worker or whoever else depends on physical therapy to aid them along the road of recovery. These supplies include Theraband products, kinesiology tape— which can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, plus inflammatory conditions—and Biofreeze, among other products. Biofreeze gel provides relief from minor aches and pains of sore muscles and joints associated with simple backache, arthritis, bruises, strains and sprains. Kinesiology tape works by improving joint alignment and affecting the muscles and can reduce poor function of a joint by influencing opposing muscle groups and joint mobility. Biofreeze – because it is a gel that must be applied to specific areas of the body – is a targeted approach to relieving strains, bruises, sprains, etc. The bottom line is this: Team Medical Group makes available, at special member prices, equipment necessary for the well-equipped physical therapist. Some other equipment examples include electrodes, therapy balls and digital x-ray machines and many more.
According to the site USNews, jobs in the physical therapy field are expected to grow 36% by the year 2022. The health care industry in general is expected to be among the fastest growing career fields in the US. This is an explosion that physical therapists must be prepared for by having not only the dedication and necessary training involved, but also the proper supplies required to do the job right. For that reason, Team Medical Group stands ready to help physical therapists meet the challenges of this coming boom.
