ACP Programs

ACP’s specialized treatment programs are built around the use of medical technology called "Therapeutic Modalities." While Therapeutic Modalities have been used successfully for many years in a variety of rehabilitation settings, ACP was the first to develop an "integrated approach" combining this proven medical technology with other "best-practice" therapeutic interventions, along with advanced therapist training. The programs have demonstrated their ability to improve outcomes for a wide range of prevalent conditions experienced by aging adults and others including pain management, inflammation, neuromuscular re-education, stroke recovery, contractures, urinary incontinence, wounds, joint replacement recovery, COPD, rheumatoid arthritis, knee osteoarthritis, herpes zoster, fall prevention.

These conservative non-invasive, medication free programs are now available in thousands of facilities and clinics throughout the U.S. including skilled nursing facilities, sub-acute rehabilitation providers, home health agencies and outpatient clinics. The programs are implemented in conjunction with each facility’s therapy, nursing and operations staff, as well as the patient’s physician.

ACP’s "integrated" clinical programs enable these partnering facilities to improve quality of care and expand their therapy services to treat a broader range of patients and conditions. Together with these progressive healthcare providers, ACP’s vision is to "Revolutionize Rehabilitation."

ACP’s comprehensive clinical programs are developed around medical science and evidence-based practice using recognized sources such as the Cochrane Collaboration, the Ottawa Panel, the Philadelphia Panel, the AHRQ, ECRI Evidence-based Practice Center and other refereed publications. Developed around the medical complexities of aging adults, each program includes condition-specific patient evaluation, disease pathology, anatomy, physiology and anatomy of action, as well as related regulatory, documentation and reimbursement considerations.

The programs include the following clinical modules:
