Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a doctor's prescription for physical therapy?
Is outpatient therapy covered by insurance?
Physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy are covered by most insurance providers. As a courtesy to our patients, we verify your benefits and bill your insurance at the time of service.
How many times will I have to see my therapist?
That varies, depending on the person and the diagnosis. Your therapist will give you a plan of treatment during your initial evaluation. We strive to partner with our patients to help you get better as quickly as possible.
Will therapy be painful?
Our goal is not to inflict pain on our patients, but sometimes changing range of motion, improving soft tissue health, and increasing muscle strength can be uncomfortable in the short term. By listening to our patients and tailoring treatments based on your needs, our goal is to improve your pain, not cause pain.
Can I do any exercises at home?
Yes, in fact it is encouraged! After meeting with your therapist, there will be a plan of care made to help you manage/decrease your symptoms and return to the things you love. During the sessions, a home program will be established so you can continue to improve in between treatment sessions. Our therapists are here to help you become more independent in your healing and are easy to reach if you have any questions about your home program.
How many times per week do I need to come to get results?
We get that question a lot, but every diagnosis and every patient has a different prescription. Each patient has an individualized plan of care depending on their specific goals. However, we find that most patients will see a significant difference in 3-6 visits, and should potentially be meeting their goals in 4-6 weeks. Some patients need to see their therapist 2-3 times a week, others only need 1 visit per week.
What happens during my therapy sessions?
During your initial evaluation, your therapist listens to your concerns and performs a thorough exam. The first session is a mix of talking, assessment, treatment, and establishing your home therapy program. Following sessions include hands-on treatment to improve symptoms as well as activities to reeducate your body. Each session is focused on you and your goals!
Do you have any special training or certifications?
All of our therapists are highly experienced and educated. Each therapist has unique specialties and training, such as orthopedics, manual therapy, TMJ, dry needling, functional communication, swallowing, resistive breathing treatment, adaptive living and motor coordination.
