Recover With Purpose ((Final))

Performance Medicine & Sports Therapy (PMST) is now introducing The Recover with Purpose System(RPS). RPS is designed to combine the structural, functional, and corrective techniques for a faster recovery to you as the patient. PMST providers will implement RPS in order to get to the underlying cause of your injury. This ensures effective results and most importantly, faster results to get you back in the game.

RPS is a phased approach to injury. We believe that injuries need to be treated in the correct sequence of order on a comprehensive scale. We take every aspect into consideration when assessing an injury. A PMST provider will evaluate your needs and assess which phase you fit into. You will then be treated based on your real-time needs. This ensures that you are receiving the correct treatment at the correct time.

The Four Phases of RPS

1. The Discovery Phase

This phase starts the moment you make an appointment at PMST, and it involves two very important aspects:

A) “What is going on?” The correct diagnosis is crucial. It is the cornerstone of RPS. Answering this question gives valuable information to which part of the RPS model you fall into. The more precise this is, the quicker you are back in the game.

B) Pain management. We ensure we get your pain under control.

2. The Relationship Phase

Structure (bone) Function (muscle): The relationship between the body’s structure and function are intertwined. It looks in-depth into what the body is doing, and analyzing the movement. Structure is what most people think of as traditional chiropractic care. It looks at what the bones are doing, and if the joints are moving correctly (mechanics). This is where traditional chiropractic stops. Function looks at the soft tissue, while making sure it is functioning correctly. PMST providers have advanced training in many soft tissue techniques. Structure and Function go hand-in-hand when treating injuries. When applied to treating injuries, the resulting outcomes are far superior to that of traditional chiropractic care.

3. The Motor Control Phase

Injuries can cause certain muscles to shut down (inhibited), forcing other muscles to become overworked. This compensation pattern can create pain or tightness. A RPS provider will ensure the neuromuscular connections associated with your injury are firing. They will then provide you with some homework. Think of it as prep work for Phase 4.

4. The Stabilization/Strengthening (SS) Phase

We take this phase very seriously, as it is the final step to getting the athlete or weekend warrior back in the game. Phase 4 is an individually tailored, customized program to fit your specific goals. This is based on a thorough examination, identifying your stability or strength impairments. In the SS phase, you will receive goal-oriented, sport-specific PT to get you back to optimal performance.
