Diversity and Inclusion in Physical Therapy

Diversity and Inclusion in Physical Therapy

At BURD Physical Therapy, we strive to provide the best care and treatment for our patients. We believe that diversity and inclusion play a crucial role in achieving this goal.


What is Diversity?

Diversity refers to the differences among individuals such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, ability, and socioeconomic status. These differences make each person unique and contribute to a diverse society.


Why is Diversity Important in Physical Therapy?

Diversity in physical therapy allows for a better understanding of the patient's needs, values, and beliefs. It also promotes cultural competence, which is essential in providing quality care to patients from diverse backgrounds.

At BURD Physical Therapy, we understand that each patient has unique needs and experiences. Our team of therapists is trained to be culturally competent, ensuring that we provide individualized care for every patient.


The Importance of Inclusion

Inclusion means creating an environment where everyone feels welcomed, respected, and valued. It involves actively seeking out and including individuals from diverse backgrounds in decision-making processes and providing equal opportunities for growth and development.

In physical therapy, inclusion is vital in creating a comfortable and safe space for patients to receive treatment. It also encourages open communication between the patient and the therapist, leading to better outcomes.

At BURD Physical Therapy, diversity and inclusion are at the core of our values. We strive to create a welcoming environment for all our patients, regardless of their background or identity. We continuously educate ourselves on cultural competence and work towards providing equitable care for all.

We also believe that diversity and inclusion should be reflected in our team. We are proud to have a diverse group of therapists who bring their unique perspectives and experiences to better serve our patients.
