About Us

Quality care, experience, and our personal touch.

Quote

"Social relations and groupings only reflect mechanical and industrial conditions. The great facts of present industry are the displacement of human skill by machines and the increase of capitalist power through concentration in the possession of the tools with which wealth is produced and distributed."

Philosophy

Tranquillity Physical Therapy works with you and your physician to design a program that works; one that will improve your lifestyle after an illness or injury.
For Example: 

  • A personalized treatment program is developed for each patient.

  • A highly skilled, and professional physical therapist will work with you. He/she will help you reach your goals through a comprehensive evaluation, personalized treatments and the use of the most up to date techniques and equipment.

  • Each of our patients is dealt with as an individual with special needs.

  • Our goal is to keep your doctor fully informed on the improvement you are making, and what additional therapy we have planned.

A fully integrated team approach to therapy helps patients achieve their full potential. Patients, family members, case managers, and physicians work together with therapy staff to develop goals, monitor progress and meet the challenges of tomorrow. Our programs emphasize outcome based treatment plans, interdisciplinary care conferencing, hands-on family involvement and problem focused goals.

At Tranquillity we get to know our patients. Our professional, friendly staff is committed to providing you with high quality care and the customer service you deserve. Our quaint setting and low staff to patient ratios offer you true individualized service.

All States require physical therapists to pass a licensure exam before they can practice, after graduating from an accredited physical therapist educational program.

According to the American Physical Therapy Association, there were 199 accredited physical therapist programs in 2001. Of the accredited programs, 165 offered master's degrees, and 33 offered doctoral degrees. By 2002, all physical therapist programs seeking accreditation are required to offer degrees at the master's degree level and above, in accordance with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education.

Physical therapist programs start with basic science courses such as biology, chemistry, and physics, and then introduce specialized courses such as biomechanics, neuroanatomy, human growth and development, manifestations of disease, examination techniques, and therapeutic procedures. Besides classroom and laboratory instruction, students receive supervised clinical experience. Courses useful when applying to physical therapist educational programs include anatomy, biology, chemistry, social science, mathematics, and physics. Before granting admission, many professional education programs require experience as a volunteer in a physical therapy department of a hospital or clinic.

Physical therapists should have strong interpersonal skills in order to successfully educate patients about their physical therapy treatments. They should also be compassionate and possess a desire to help patients. Similar traits also are needed to interact with the patient's family.

Physical therapists are expected to continue professional development by participating in continuing education courses and workshops. A number of states require continuing education to maintain licensure.

Employment of physical therapists is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2010. Federal legislation imposing limits on reimbursement for therapy services may adversely affect the job market for physical therapists in the near term. However, over the long run, the demand for physical therapists should continue to rise as a result of growth in the number of individuals with disabilities or limited function requiring therapy services. The rapidly growing elderly population is particularly vulnerable to chronic and debilitating conditions that require therapeutic services. Also, the baby-boom generation is entering the prime age for heart attacks and strokes, increasing the demand for cardiac and physical rehabilitation. More young people will need physical therapy as technological advances save the lives of a larger proportion of newborns with severe birth defects.

Future medical developments should also permit a higher percentage of trauma victims to survive, creating additional demand for rehabilitative care. Growth also may result from advances in medical technology which permit the treatment of more disabling conditions.

Widespread interest in health promotion also should increase demand for physical therapy services. A growing number of employers are using physical therapists to evaluate worksites, develop exercise programs, and teach safe work habits to employees in the hopes of reducing injuries.
