Patient Results

At Steele Creek Physical Therapy & Balance Center Inc, we use valid and reliable outcome measures to determine if a patient is recovering from their condition. These measures are completed by the patient at initial evaluation and discharge. Below are our outcome measures for the last 9 months and include patients who have been compliant with their treatment plan. Patients who have failed to attend PT due to medical reasons and other reasons are not included.

The first outcome measurement is the DASH (Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand). Patient who have conditions such as rotator cuff repair, shoulder pain, elbow pain, tennis elbow, bicep tendinitis etc… fill out this form. With this measure the lower the score the better. Only a few patients did not improve.

DASH

The next measure is the LEFS (Lower Extremity Function Scale). Patients who have conditions such as hip pain, knee replacements, patella tendinitis, ankle sprains, after knee, ankle or hip surgeries complete this measure. In this case the higher the score the better functioning the patient is. Again only a few did not improve.

LEFS

 

The next measure is the NDI (Neck Disability Index). Patients who have conditions such as neck pain, after neck surgeries, disc pain, neck strains, whiplash injuries etc.. complete this form. In this case the lower the score the better function. only a few patients did not improve.

The last outcome measure is the Oswestry (measures lower back pain functional limitation). Patients who have conditions such as lower back strain, herniated discs, facet dysfunction, ligament strains, etc… use this measure. In this case the lower the number the less dysfuction. Only a few patients did not improve.

OSWESTRY

We take pride in providing quality care to our patients. Teamwork and compliance between the therapist and patient yields the best results. We look forward to assisting any patient with their physical therapy needs.
