Physical Therapists Author Article in the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Magazine

Houston, TX (May 13, 2019) Nova Medical Centers’ Physical Therapists were published in the quarterly issue of the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy’s (AOPT) publication.

The AOPT is a nonprofit organization that represents physical therapists focused on the rehabilitation of orthopaedic injuries, with a membership of over 19,700 professionals and practitioners.

“The Nova physical therapy providers are best in class with the care they render and their commitment to advancement of their profession. Both of which benefit patients and clients. We are proud of their work” says Dr. Mark Pucek, Nova Medical Centers’ Chief Medical Officer.

The significance of this article is to provide practical advice to assist physical therapists with the management of work participation barriers after an acute injury, in order to reduce productivity loss and psychosocial changes during recovery. Effective and timely management of the acutely injured worker is strengthened by participation in some form of productive duty, access to workplace-based return-to-work programs, and convenient healthcare provider services.
