HD PHYSICAL THERAPY Got a New Toy - The Quick Board
HD Physical Therapy is excited to help more patients with a new treatment system - The Quick Board.
“The Quick Board is a very unique, interactive tool. I can use it for anything - ankles, knees, shoulders core strengthening, lumbar stability, etc. It challenges patients in a way they never have been challenged before, testing their agility, reaction time, balance and quickness,” said HDPT therapist Svet Wilson, PTA, ATC. “We can even out deficiencies;
The Quick Board can:
· Enhance and shorten the rehabilitation process and assist with critical sports medicine evaluations and decisions such as "return to play" with objective, real-time data.
· Deliver baseline scores on speed, agility and reaction drills to compare pre- and post-injury data, track daily progress, and evaluate the effectiveness of your rehabilitation program.
· Restore pre-injury communication between the brain and the injured body part - neurological rehabilitation. This is a critical advancement in therapy, as sports medicine professionals have found that even after athletes have returned to pre-injury strength and range of motion, they may suffer from a neurological deficit, which increases the risk of another injury.
· Enable our therapists to better determine whether a patient is favoring a non-injured body part during recovery. The Quick Board’s sensors track when an athlete doesn’t fully use an injured side of the body. This type of overcompensation can cause athletes to favor their healthy, non-injured legs, which can lead to additional injuries.
