San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2008
Despite a plethora of treatment options for people suffering from back and other types of musculoskeletal surgeries, injuries and pain, there is now a revolutionary delivery system for evaluation and care. Two healthcare entrepreneurs, Dr. Paul Christensen and Jim Killin have pioneered treatments for musculoskeletal rehabilitation and pain that solve the major healthcare issues of quality, access and cost of care.
"People in rehabilitation and post-rehabilitation now have access to individualized treatment, essential standardized education and progression methodology at a location of the patients' choice" says Dr. Robert Millard, a physician with Sports Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Medicine Associates (SOAR). He adds, "With the advent of the internet, we've been able to infuse our clinical know-how into an easy to use tool that helps people perform rehabilitation and post rehabilitation care along with musculo-skeletal wellness with much less out-of-pocket cost than through traditional methods. People can do their assessments and related individualized exercise care plans wherever and whenever they want."
Dr. Gary Fanton, the Chief of the Section of Sports Medicine at Stanford's Department of Orthopedic Surgery continues, "Until recently, there were no tools to help people assess their own condition in partnership with their physicians and physical therapists. Moreover, medical research now indicates that people heal best when they heal through methodical rehabilitation focused on assessment, feedback and specific exercise regimens tailored to an individual's needs. Our tool also enhances compliance while decreasing costs of rehabilitation."
Drs. Fanton and Millard serve as key advisors to TherapyPro, a company that has created a patented clinical software tool designed to empower people to care for themselves in overcoming physical limitations, recovery from injuries and healing from recent surgeries. This tool assesses functional and physical capacity, and then through these assessments, evaluates the ability of a person to perform activities of daily living and provides applicable exercise plans. The goal of TherapyPro is to return users' functional ability back to a state of normality by leveraging patented technology resulting in reduced demand on the healthcare system and significant cost reduction.
Drs. Fanton and Millard have over 41 years of expertise in orthopedic and sports medicine between them. They've published numerous articles on non-operative rehabilitation for medical journals, newspapers and magazines. Available for interviews, the doctors welcome questions from readers and fellow physicians alike. For additional information, visit our website http://www.therapypro.net.
