Dr. Jeff J. Mollins works hand in hand with referred physical therapists to provide the best care possible for patients injured in accidents. Dr. Mollins has been practicing for over 25 years in downtown Brooklyn. He specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of patients injured in accidents. Some examples of these accidents include slip and falls, construction accidents, work accidents (Workers Compensation), as well as automobile accidents (No Fault).
A physical therapist is a licensed health care professional who examines and evaluates a patient’s condition and then plans and administers treatments to promote optimal health. Physical therapists seek to relieve pain, improve the body’s movement and function, maintain cardiopulmonary function, restore, maintain and promote optimal physical function, and limit disabilities resulting from injury or disease.
Some of the following conditions can be treated successfully by physical therapists:
- Back pain, Neck Pain, Sprain/Strains
- Leg and Arm Pain
- Work Injuries (Workers Compensation)
- Auto Accidents (No Fault)
- Slip and Fall Injuries
- Construction Accident Injuries
- Herniated disc/spinal disc disease
- Sports Injuries
- Post and Pre-op Care
- Overuse Injuries (Repetitive Stress Injuries)
Physical therapists will initially take your health history. Then they will perform a comprehensive orthopedic and neurologic screening. They will observe your posture and movement, evaluate your injury, and develop a plan of care. Treatment may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Patient/client education in health, wellness and safety
- Manual therapy, such as massage, mobilization and manipulation
- Therapeutic exercise
- Management of Pain
- Application of therapeutic modalities, such as ultrasound and electric stimulation
- Training in daily living activities
Physical therapy treatment is designed to increase motion, heal pain and most importantly RESTORE FUNCTION!
In addition, our referred physical therapists (just like all of the other referred specialists) are experts at documentation of all injuries. They are certified by New York State to treat Workers Compensation patients. So if you are hurt at work, you can be treated for free (therapy will be paid by your Workers Compensation insurance carrier) and receive compensation for your lost wages if unable to work. When you return to work, you can still receive treatment at no cost. All referred physical therapists are skilled at handling the paperwork and billing properly so that our patients may receive their needed compensation.
Physical therapy is a crucial means of restoring optimal health to patients injured in accidents. In conjunction with other referred specialists (orthopedics, neurology, pain management, etc.), Dr. Jeff J. Mollins is able to diagnose, treat, and document all injuries sustained and restore our patients to maximum health.
