Luna Research Recap Part 1 of 4: What Does Earlier Access to Care Mean to Recovery?

How the Early Application of PT Intervention Impacts the Efficacy of Care

Luna Research Recap Part 1 of 4: What Does Earlier Access to Care Mean to Recovery?

What happens when we get a patient into treatment within 48 hours of injury?

A recent University of Michigan study, commissioned by Luna, uncovered that a three-week period can:

  1. Make a significant difference in healing, chronic pain patterns, biomechanics, and substitutions.
  2. An earlier start to physical therapy allows tissues to heal on a more linear timeline.
  3. Early care also importantly avoids pharmaceutical intervention, diagnostics, and even costly procedures.

In summary, direct access to physical therapy provided by Luna allows for faster treatment and the opportunity to heal quicker.

In comparing the traditional medical pathway vs. direct access, a Luna PT shared, “It's like hailing a taxi vs. getting an Uber”.

The webinar covered:

  • What Does Earlier Care Mean to Recovery?
  • Can Earlier Access to Physical Therapy Reduce Costs for Neck and Low Back Pain?
  • Can At Home Physical Therapy Increase Adherence to Plan of Care?
  • Can Physical Therapy Decrease Unnecessary Imaging and Procedures?

Luna is leading the way in patient engagement, improved functional outcomes, and cost containment.
