HERE TO HELP.
How long does each visit take?
The initial visit takes a little longer than the subsequent visits due to the paperwork and assessment process. Normally, appointments last between 30 and 60 minutes.
How long will I need physical therapy?
You will need to attend physical therapy sessions until you and your therapist decide that you have reached your desired level of function or that further therapy would not be beneficial. Often therapy will also be monitored by your physician.
When should I start seeing improvement?
We make a treatment plan for you, which includes follow-up and regular maintenance visits to our physical rehab clinic. If you feel like you are not progressing at a satisfactory rate, we will collaborate with you and modify your treatment plan. After your initial evaluation we will send a copy of the examination to your doctor along with progress notes at regular intervals. We will always keep you informed as well about your progress.

Who uses Physical or Rehabilitative Therapy?
Individuals who are in need of restoring injured body parts, increasing flexibility, or building strength benefit most from physical therapy. We also help improve posture, which if left uncorrected can cause damaging musculoskeletal conditions. Additionally, we help patients who have undergone surgeries and who are in need of therapy to regain optimal physical functionality.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
Bring records from your doctor, a list of your medications, allergies and a list of prior doctors. We also recommend bringing in a list of any questions or concerns you may have. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to provide us the necessary paperwork and insurance information. To save time, you can print the patient registration forms.
What should I wear?
Comfortable, nonrestrictive clothing or athletic wear is recommended for stretching or exercising. Your clothes should also allow us to evaluate your area of injury. We also suggest comfortable, closed-toe shoes, preferably sneakers. If you have any questions, please contact us prior to your first appointment.
Will I see the same physical therapist every time?
We will make every attempt to schedule you with the therapist you desire to see. However, there may be times when another physical therapist will treat you to accommodate your schedule. All of our licensed physical therapists deliver exceptional care.
Will my insurance pay for therapy?
Generally, most insurance companies pay for physical therapy. Some companies have restricted coverage or do not cover occupational therapy. We recommend you call the benefit number listed on your insurance card verify insurance benefits before beginning therapy.
Do I need a physician's referral for physical therapy?
Most insurance companies will require a physician's referral for physical therapy. Bring this referral to your first appointment. Medicare requires the patient to be seen every 30 days by their physician to continue with therapy.
