Don’t just see a physical therapist, see a Doctor of Physical Therapy in Boca Raton

Why See a Physical Therapist First for Pain?
There are numerous studies that show a strong benefit when getting treated first by a physical therapist when dealing with musculoskeletal pain (or pain that affects the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves).
Research has shown that there are significantly more healthcare costs associated with the traditional approach to dealing with musculoskeletal pain compared to when you visit a physical therapist first. There are many reasons including work days missed, medications, and other procedures prescribed by doctors.
Physical therapists are trained to determine when an injury or condition is outside their scope of practice and research has proven that physical therapists are more accurate in their clinical diagnosis for musculosketetal pain compared to internal medicine doctors, family care doctors, non-orthopedic healthcare providers and emergency room physicians.
Physical therapists can treat your entire body by identifying the root cause of your pain. And not only do we address the area of pain, but we can teach you how to properly care for your body to decrease the likelihood of future injury.

Ben Galin, DPT, OCS
Dr. Ben, as we affectionally call him, has been practicing since 2001. His central focus is in sports medicine, spinal conditions, arthritis, post-surgical rehab, and other orthopedic conditions. Dr. Ben received his undergraduate degree from James Madison University, and went on to receive both his Masters and Doctor of PT from Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Ben stays engaged with the newest methods and research, and even teaches physical therapy courses to other therapists in Florida.
Dr. Ben does not believe in a “no-pain no-gain” philosophy, but instead believes in promoting healing through proper engagement of affected areas and teaching the nervous system how to re-incorporate proper use of an injured area without triggering pain responses. He prefers to work hands-on, one to one with patients. He does not like to use big exercise machines, but rather favors functional body movements to rehabilitate injuries.

Best PT around the area. Family-like atmosphere, TLC from everyone. I cannot thank Dr. Minett and Dr. Ben enough for the level of care they provide.
Not only are the people here the sweetest, their methods of care are absolutely astounding. I have been suffering with a muscle spasm problem for 1.5 years, and I finally found this place just a short few months ago. And in this span of time they have improved my back pain like no other place has come close to doing, and I believe this is the place to eventually bring me to 100%.
Great staff! I was injured in a car accident where my neck received a couple irritated disks. The staff here treated me like royalty and tended to my every need. Everytime I left total health and rehab I felt amazing and refreshed. Not only that but due to my busy school and work schedule they were always able to make an appointment that suited me. Total rehab is underrated with their performance. Great place to select if your having some pains here and there

Here Are Some Commonly Asked Questions About Our Customized Physical Therapy Offerings:
Q. Who provides physical therapy?
A. Physical therapy is provided by a doctor of physical therapy. Should you have a variety of health concerns such as sports medicine, spinal conditions, arthritis, post-surgical rehab, and other orthopedic conditions, it may be beneficial to consult a doctor with a trained physical therapy staff to learn more about the array of natural, non-invasive services that could be used during your course of treatment.
Q. Is a prescription necessary for physical therapy?
A. While a prescription from your primary care physician isn’t necessary to seek physical therapy, you may wish to obtain one in order for it to be covered by your health insurance. Many insurance providers need a prescription before they’ll reimburse you for an appointment.
Q. What should I wear to my physical therapy appointment?
A. Due to the nature of physical therapy exercises and stretches, loose-fitting clothing is recommended to allow for your full range of comfortable movement. This will allow us to easily access your injured area(s). Should you need to change clothes at our facility, we recommend you arrive a little early.
Q. How long are physical therapy appointments?
A. Physical therapy appointments last approximately 1 hour per session. We try to make it as convenient as possible for you, so as not to disrupt your daily routine.
