Treatment begins with a physical therapist evaluating your condition, identifying the source(s) of your discomfort or dysfunction, and developing a custom treatment program for your condition. Usually this involves some form of manual therapy and exercise, as well as modalities to treat the causes. You will receive verbal instructions and written information for a home exercise program, education on body mechanics and measures to prevent further injury or re-injury.
Appointments and payment services are handled by our front office staff. Our staff will make every effort to schedule appointments that are convenient with your schedule. Payment methods, including insurance questions, should be addressed at the time of your initial visit. Please understand that in all cases the patient is ultimately responsible for complete and timely payment for services rendered. Although medical insurance generally covers physical therapy treatments every insurance plan is unique. We recommend that you check with your insurance carrier to confirm the terms of your particular coverage.
Duration and completion of your physical therapy program will depend upon your condition, your body's ability to heal, and your commitment to following the prescribed treatment program. Although the average treatment period is 4-6 weeks, after your evaluation your physical therapist can provide an approximation of the time required and reasonable expectations for your treatments.
