Many medical clinics these days are extremely specialized and only deal with certain types of health conditions. So it is wonderful to have a multidisciplinary medical practice that can address everything from orthopedics and sports medicine to cosmetic services like Botox.
The benefits of having a practice like this nearby are that the medical providers can deal with a minor emergency and also offer follow-up checkups at the same location. Here at the Texas Medical Institute, we started with comprehensive family medicine, emergency medicine, and chiropractic care, then added cosmetic services, physical therapy, and much more.
Medical Professionals for the Whole Community
Consider us as your own go-to family clinic. We can handle minor emergency services like a broken ankle or a sprained knee. We conduct occupational therapy services by working with employers, employees, regulators, insurance companies, and safety professionals in order to create a safer workplace. We also offer chiropractic care and physical therapy.
Our medical team also offers many services for the Texas Department of Workers’ Compensation to try to help patients injured on the job with:
- Injury screening and testing
- Injury care or wound care (crush injuries, cuts, bumps, bruises)
- Radiology services (X-rays, EKGs, lab work)
- Health screening for your employees
- Drug testing for potential employees
Rehabilitation Services and Physical Therapy
Our physical therapists (PTs) are trained to push patients in an effort to shorten their injury recovery and help prevent further injury. Our therapists will also demonstrate to patients certain exercises that will help relieve their pain and try to get the patient up, moving, and back to work as rapidly as possible.
Especially if the patient suffered a joint injury that necessitated surgical intervention, our PTs will help them recover fully. The therapist will also follow up as necessary to make sure the patient is recovering well.
Full-Service Medical Clinic in Fort Worth
The concept of a multidisciplinary health care practice originated at the turn of the 20th century by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Their model promotes an environment where doctors, nurses, therapists, and other health care professionals all work together to better treat their patients – who will be examined from a number of different points of view and approaches.
Studies show that when multidisciplinary medical teams communicate and work together efficiently, there are fewer errors, and the health and safety level of the patient rises exponentially. Because the various members of the practice work together as a team to treat the patient, it greatly benefits the patient: They do not have to travel from a primary care doctor to a specialist to an imaging center. It’s all here.
