Meet Wellness Medical Center's New Physical Therapist, Allison Goodman-O'Rourke

Allison Goodman-O'Rourke, M.S., P.T. Wellness Medical Center is pleased to announce the hiring of physical therapist Allison Goodman-O'Rourke, M.S., P.T.

Allison Goodman-O'Rourke began her medical career as a rehab aid in 1988.  Goodman-O'Rourke is a graduate of Simmons College in Boston and earned her masters degree and certification in physical therapy in 1995.  With a special focus in orthopedics, Goodman-O'Rourke has worked in many different roles as a physical therapist, from working in home care and hospitals to managing a clinic.

"I'm thrilled to be a part of Wellness Medical Center," said Goodman-O'Rourke.  "I've been a physical therapist for almost 15 years. The best part of my job is working closely with patients and knowing that I'm helping make their lives better," said Goodman-O'Rourke.  "Wellness Medical Center shares my philosophy of always putting the patient first and making sure the patient's rehabilitation experience is as positive and successful as possible," she added.
Injured in a Car Accident? Here's What You Need to KnowHurt in a car accident? Call your physical therapist.

Getting to work or school, picking up groceries, visiting our family and friends--we depend on our cars everyday.  Unfortunately, with that much time behind the wheel, automobile accidents are almost as having to rake leaves in November. 

If find yourself hurt after an accident, the most important thing is don't wait to get medical help.  Even if your accident occurred at slow speeds, it is important to be examined by a medical professional such as a physical therapist as soon after an accident as possible. Injuries like whiplash might not show symptoms for hours, days, or even longer. You might be injured and not even know it.

The longer you wait for treatment after you are injured, the longer it will likely take to recover. Most medical professionals agree that the first 72 hours after an accident are the most critical time for effective treatment.

Seeking prompt medical treatment after an accident might also help preserve your rights during any subsequent dispute or legal matter with another driver or insurance provider.

In most cases, treatment for injuries from an auto accident will cost you nothing out of pocket, even if the accident was your fault or you do not have private health insurance. You do not need a referral from your primary care physician to visit a physical therapist after an auto accident.

If you have been in an accident, contact Wellness Medical Center. Our friendly office staff will help take care of your paperwork and our caring doctors and therapists will make sure you get the treatment you need.
