Initial Evaluations will take about 90 minutes to complete a thorough history, evaluation, and begin treatment, provide education materials and review home program exercises.
A regular session is generally about an hour thereafter.
How much can I expect to pay for each visit?
A patient's financial responsibility varies depending on the insurance policy. Once your benefits are verified you will be notified about your financial responsibility.
What should I bring to my appointment?
On your first appointment, you will need an ID (Driver's License) and Insurance Card, and minors (under 18) must have parents with them at their first visit.
All patients should bring or be able to furnish a complete medications list. Also recent imaging reports may be beneficial depending on your injury and condition.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably.. and ready to exercise in most cases! Hip, knee and back patients should wear shorts. For patients being evaluated for any shoulder, neck and thoracic problems, a tank top or sports bra is recommended for females and loose fitting shirt or removable top for males in order to properly evaluate the condition.
Do I need a prescription/referral to see a physical therapist?
All fifty states have some form of direct access. In most cases, if you are not making significant improvement within 30 days, the therapist will refer you to/back to your physician.
