What can I expect?
Each patient is evaluated by a licensed physical therapist that completes a personalized goal-oriented treatment plan based upon their findings. Patients are guided through their treatment by either a licensed physical therapist or a physical therapy assistant. Each session could consist of manual therapy, postural education, therapeutic exercises, and the use of therapeutic modalities as needed. Patients are provided with personalized instructions for home exercise programs that can be referenced on-line with a link from our website. We communicate closely with other healthcare professionals involved in each patients care. The clinicians possess advanced knowledge in in many specialty areas in order to provide each patient with the most comprehensive and effective care.
Do I need a referral?
Patients can access physical therapists directly for the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Patients are not required to have a referral from a physician to attend physical therapy, eliminating the need for unnecessary appointments or delays in scheduling. Prior to scheduling an appointment our intake personnel will perform a courtesy insurance verification and also confirm that you are appropriate for physical therapy intervention. Patients will undergo an initial evaluation and the physical therapist will create a individualized treatment plan and provide guidance for the ongoing management of your condition. Patients who show signs and symptoms of a condition that requires treatment beyond the physical therapists’ scope of practice will be referred to their physician. Most insurance companies cover payment for patients being seen without a referral.
