Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy Increases
Patient Success Through Education

Leading Orange County Physical Therapy Clinic Urges Patients to Actively Participate in the Pain Management and Physical Therapy Treatment Process

COSTA MESA, CA - May 5, 2017 - Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy - a leading Orange County, Calif. physical therapy (PT) practice specializing in sports medicine, orthopedics, geriatrics and neurology - joins leading PT practitioners who aim to increase patient success through education. With studies showing how patients benefit from actively participating in the management of their health and wellbeing, the PT professionals at the Costa Mesa clinic are engaging in high-quality dialogue with their patients while providing them with valuable information, which ultimately leads to fewer problems and more positive outcomes.

"To make the most of every visit, we encourage our patients to evaluate available treatment options and understand the importance of self-advocacy," says Ann Steinfeld, the clinic's founder and CEO. "It's particularly important for patients to be able to describe how a problem is affecting their daily lives including symptoms, loss of function and inability to complete tasks that once came easily."

Patients can play a more active role in the physical therapy treatment process by adopting these positive strategies:

  • Know when to seek professional help
  • Prepare thoughtful questions to ask a physical therapist
  • Become familiar with treatment guidelines for a specific condition
  • Follow through on a care plan
  • Proactively seek health-related information

Today's patients have more tools than ever at their disposal to locate the right resources, remain informed about health needs, participate in a care plan and take ownership of their health. Physical therapists who partner with patients on their quest to regain function, improve mobility or avoid unnecessary surgeries and medications exponentially increase the chances for improved wellbeing.

"Patients who take an active role in the care process know their options and commit to a healthier lifestyle that includes getting more exercise and eating right," Steinfeld adds. "And research says it's working. Patients who are more engaged in their own care plans tend to achieve better results overall."
