Proactive Rehabilitation & Wellness is a leader in physical rehabilitation treatment, taking a biopsychosocial approach.
We empower patients to make informed decisions, become drivers of their own healthcare, and to chart a holistic path to healing.”
We envision a world where skilled, competent, and caring clinicians serve and care for engaged patients to promote better clinical outcomes, unmatched patient satisfaction, and lasting relationships.
There’s A Problem…
Do your patients get better? Do they receive the full benefits of the services that you recommend they receive?
If you answered “no”, don’t worry. You’re not alone. In fact, what if I told you there’s a common problem in the therapy and rehabilitation field that costs our healthcare system tens of millions of dollars each year? Do you do know what that problem is?
If you guessed patient drop-out, or non-completion of therapy programs, you’d be right.
Here are some stunning statistics:
- Approximately 14% of therapy (PT/OT) patients do not show up for their follow-up appointments
- Between 20-30% will not show up to their third appointment
- Up to 70 percent of patients will fail to complete their full course if care 
Can you believe that? 7 out of every 10 patients you refer to therapy may actually never complete their course of care!
That can cost our healthcare systems tons of money on one hand. And on the other, it means that 7 out of 10 patients aren’t receiving the full benefit of the treatment they’re referred for. They’re stopping before their pain free, or they’re still experiencing their limitations.
So how do we overcome the fact that many of the patients referred to therapy services don’t complete their course of care? Well, we believe that the reason the drop out rate is so high is because most patients (and even clinicians) are disengaged from therapy services. As we’ve written in our Manifesto, day after day, millions of patients go to clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities to address issues related to their physical, emotional, and mental health. More often than not, they are met with indifference or bulldozed by procedures. And that’s not surprising, when the healthcare environment pushes clinicians to the point of burnout and apathy.
Healthcare should be about one thing: PEOPLE! Yet how many clinics, organizations, or healthcare professionals live their lives by the numbers? Metrics & spreadsheets drive most of our healthcare decision makers and administrators. That leaves patients -the people we serve- lost in the mix. Patients feel lost, forgotten, and ignored by a system that prioritizes efficiency & productivity over their own personal experiences, priorities, or goals.
At ProActive Rehabilitation & Wellness, we take a different approach to patient care. Instead of taking a biomedical view of our patients, we take a biopsychosocial approach, seeing each patient as a unique individual, experiencing a unique set of circumstances, on a unique road to recovery. And we want to tailor our assessment and treatment to meet them where them are at, not to try to fit them into cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-most treatment programs.
That leads to higher engagement, increased course of care completion & compliance with therapy programs, and ultimately, better clinical outcomes.
What is a Biopsychosocial Approach?
Simply put: humans are incredibly complex (tell me something I don’t know, right?)
In the past, a biomedical model of practice placed symptoms, diagnoses, and physiological issues at the forefront of clinician’s mind. While these factors are important, they represent only a fraction of the whole person, the individual patient, sitting in front of us. Each patient is a unique individual with unique situations and factors; not just a diagnosis out of a textbook.
We understand how physical, psychological, and social/environmental factors interact throughout a patient’s experience experience of a disease, injury, or illness. We also understand that there are too many factors at play for rigid treatment protocols or “cookie-cutter” treatment programs.
We don’t simply rely on a diagnosis or symptoms to determine which treatment option, assessment tool, or outcome measure will be most effective for a patient. We look at their whole person, not just the aches and pains they’re currently feeling now. We address the precipitating factors, resulting in a holistic treatment approach, and leading to better outcomes.
