Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy Wraps Up 2016
With Unprecedented Growth and Successful Patient Outcomes

COSTA MESA, CA - January 4, 2017 - Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy - a leading Orange County, Calif. physical therapy practice specializing in sports medicine, orthopedics, geriatrics and neurology - is pleased to report a year of unprecedented growth, as the independently owned practice continues to expand. Celebrating its 15-year anniversary, the clinic reached a record-breaking patient average per month in 2016, representing a 20 percent increase from 2015 and nearly twice the average of 2014.

"Though 2016 was undoubtedly a volatile year around the globe, Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy continued to experience tremendous growth," says Ann Steinfeld, the clinic's founder and CEO. "We not only treated thousands of patients but also hired some of the industry's most qualified and experienced full- and part-time physical therapy professionals. Thanks to an outstanding staff and successful treatment outcomes, we are becoming the clinic of choice for patients in Costa Mesa and surrounding communities who are seeking drug-free rehabilitation alternatives to treat their pain and heal from injuries."

Physical Therapy has long been misunderstood as a complimentary field to assist and extend the physician-patient continuum of injury-related care. The cutting-edge therapists at Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy, however, are shifting the status quo by successfully demonstrating its wide-ranging benefits as a primary therapy choice not only for patients who have experienced an injury but also for those seeking to improve balance, posture and muscle strength as part of their preventive care regime. According to the Centers for Disease Control, each year millions of people 65 and older are treated in emergency rooms for falls, which in 2013 alone accounted for direct medical costs totaling $34 billion, a figure expected to escalate as a large U.S. population continues to age. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) suggests that physical therapy can significantly improve balance and decrease the rate of falls and falls-related injuries, and can be highly instrumental in treating patients who suffer from a broad spectrum of conditions—from Alzheimer's to urinary incontinence. What's more, in a seven-year study conducted by lead researchers at the University of Pittsburg, physical therapy was proven to be as effective as and safer than surgery, particularly for easing symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition that affects millions of Americans.

"With an increasing demand for compassionate, alternative approaches to alleviate pain—particularly in this post-healthcare reform era where patient engagement with healthcare professionals has drastically declined—we anticipate another year of expansion," adds Steinfeld. "Our patients and their successful outcomes have undeniably played a vital role in our growth. We are truly grateful for their support and endorsements and, as 2017 unfolds, we look forward to announcing more exciting new offerings and additional new hires."
