Frequently Asked Questions

Physical Therapy is designed to help regain strength, balance and coordination as well as relieve pain and discomfort while improving mobility. Physical Therapists are trained to teach and encourage their patients to learn new techniques on their own, while progressing them throughout their visits to regain their normal lifestyle and the activities they love.

We ask our patients to wear comfortable clothes as well as close-toed shoes to therapy. Tight clothes can restrict you from proper care and stretching.

Your first visit to therapy will be an evaluation for your care. During this appointment, your therapist will ask, as well as answer questions about your diagnosis. They will also start you off with an exercise plan that will be adjusted and increased throughout your continuation of care. After your evaluation, we will schedule you with a duration of appointments.

A prescription for PT depends on the insurance plan. Many plans do require a prescription from your doctor. If you are unable to see a doctor prior to therapy, please contact your insurance plan and see what they require. If you are a self pay patient, you are not required to have a prescription from your doctor.

Many insurance plans cover a portion, if not all of your PT visit. There are many factors that go into how much the patient may be responsible for, but we are happy to check into your plan for you prior to your visit so you know what to expect before you arrive.

Our self pay rate is $100 for the initial evaluation and $75 for every visit after that. Without insurance, you are not required to have a prescription from your doctor.

Each visit will be anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.

The amount of visits you will be seen for will greatly vary depending on your diagnosis. Post operative patients will often be seen three times a week for multiple weeks. Patients with other diagnoses will vary. Two times a week for a few weeks is usually standard to get a patient stronger, and confident in their exercises. This will also give the therapist time to add, take away, and adjust the patient’s exercise plan.

There are a number of reasons why someone may need physical therapy. Whether it be surgery, pre surgery, back or joint pain, balance and core strengthening, gait, or generalized weakness just to name a few.
