Bolanos Associates is a privately owned physical and occupational therapy company specializing in orthopedic, industrial and hand rehabilitation. Our centrally located Miami Dade facility has been serving clients since 2011, with additional facilities in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Unlike other traditional therapy clinics, where a single therapist treats multiple patients simultaneously, by rotating them throughout various machines, at our facilities we provide a one-to-one philosophy where each patient is treated by their therapist for the duration of their session. Although exercise equipment may be used as therapy tools, they should never be used as replacements for an actual hands-on therapist.
Onsite Therapy Level of Care
Our onsite therapy services follow the same rigorous treatment programs as used in our facility, with the difference that we have the ability to deliver it at the patients’ home or place of employment. While some employees may have to be treated at home due to the extent of their injuries, for work injury cases where the patient is still able to work and has been perhaps placed on lite duty, then delivering therapy services at their place of employment is indeed ideal. Rather than the employee having to take time off from work to receive treatment at a facility, our therapists will visit the employee at work, pull them away from their job task for a maximum 45-60 minute sessions, depending on their physicians’ prescribed therapy, thus allowing the employee to continue their work day with minimal interruption. Our onsite therapy programs include exercises, splint fabrication, modalities, education and incorporation of work related tasks as needed. Onsite transitional work therapy also allows for the patients’ gradual transition back to their pre-injury job tasks or another targeted job, with the supervision and assistance of our therapists.
Injured Employee Therapy Compliance
It is important to note that our philosophy of onsite therapy also assists with the injured employees’ therapy compliance. Employees may sometimes have difficulty attending scheduled therapy appointments at times, due to work schedules and personal responsibility conflicts. In many instances, his leads to employees’ plateauing in therapy, pre mature discharge and the possibility of re-injury. Although many injured employees begin attending facility based therapy on the standard 2-3 times a week, once feeling slightly better, they begin believing that attending therapy is a hassle and prefer to skip treatment sessions, thus prolonging the care and decreasing the potential of a quick and safe recovery. By providing onsite therapy at the patients’ home or place of employment, it is more difficult for them to cancel treatment sessions, and therefore receive the appropriate level of treatment for an adequate recovery. Therefore, most work injury cases end in a discharge with a home exercise program that is demonstrated in equipment that the employee does not have at home or in the work place.
We have Therapy Facilities located inside City Furniture and American Express.
