Q: Why should

What is a physical therapist?
A physical therapist is a state licensed health-care provider who specializes in the care of patients with various musculoskeletal/neurological
disorders. Physical therapists provide services that help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or
limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physical therapist
education programs start with basic science courses such as biology, chemistry, and physics and then introduce specialized
courses, including biomechanics, neuroanatomy, human growth and development, manifestations of disease, examination techniques,
and therapeutic procedures. Besides getting classroom and laboratory instruction, students receive supervised clinical experience.
Q: Do I need a prescription from a doctor to attend physical therapy?
A: No. Recently
the laws were changed to allow patients to seek treatment from a licensed physical therapist without a prescription for a
period of 30 days or 10 treatments (whichever comes first). If care is needed beyond this time, the patient
would need to obtain a prescription from a medical doctor to continue with physical therapy. In some cases,
ones health insurance may require that a prescription for physical therapy be obtained from the start of treatment in order
for them to cover the charges. We will contact your insurance company prior to your first visit to determine
if a prescription is required.
Q: What insurances do you take?
A: A list of insurances that
we participate with is located on the Insurance tab on our home page. We will verify all insurance prior to the initial visit.
Q: What do I wear?
A: Patients should dress comfortably with loose fitting clothing that will allow
the therapist to properly exam the injured body part.
Q: Will I see the
same physical therapist each time I come in?
A: We try to schedule all appointments with the physical therapist that did the
initial evaluations. At times, it may be necessary that a patient follow-up with a different therapist
due to a schedule conflict. Communication between therapists is a constant so that a patient feels comfortable
with any of our staff.
