Why is Physical Therapy a good Choice?
Physical therapy is a non invasive choice of treatment. There are many different approaches and techniques to treat conditions, and physical therapy can provide you with relief and improved movement to get you back to your normal life.
How many visits will I need?
There are several factors that affect the number of visits. Typically, your doctor will prescribe a specific number of visits, or upon evaluation, the Physical Therapist and patient will determine a program frequency and duration that will meet the patient's needs. Visits can be restricted by insurance limitations...depending on the individual's insurance benefits.
How long will each treatment last?
Treatment time varies based on what your insurance will cover. However, it is also based on your limitations and tolerance level. We will take the time to address all of your needs and goals in order to properly and thoroughly rehabilitate each patient.
Who pays for the treatment?
We accept all insurance and workers comp insurance. Insurance is the primary source of payment. We will verify your benefits and give you a breakdown of any financial responsibility you may have. There will be no surprises. Be careful if another clinic can't give you information on your financial responsibility. An unexpected bill later is an unwelcome gift. We offer financial options for those who have difficulty covering co pays, deductibles, co-insurance and self-pay.
What happens during my first visit?
The first visit will consist of your initial evaluation to discuss your specific problem and how it is affecting you. Review of your medical history, medications, and limitations will be part of the process. Testing and measurements will be performed. Once a complete idea of your problem and limitations is understood, we will discuss what options are available for your treatment and goals. We frequently begin treatment on the first visit as well.
How should I dress?
Dress comfortably in loose fitting clothing in order for your therapist to access and evaluate the problem area and to allow you to move freely while performing your exercises.
