Physical Therapy is the health profession that helps patient’s recover from injuries, pain, and dysfunction by utilizing exercise, manual therapy techniques, and modalities.
If you are in pain, have an injury, or physical dysfunction, scoliosis you would probably benefit from physical therapy.
Please bring the following to your first visit: a photo ID, health insurance card, prescription if you have one, x-rays / MRI reports if you have them.
Please wear something comfortable, loose fitting clothes, shorts if lower extremity injury, tank top or loose T shirt if shoulder or neck injury, sneakers.
Physical therapy does not generally hurt and usually will provide pain relief. Exercises should be performed within pain free range, which encourage restoration of range of motion, strength and function. Certain injuries and condition may be a little painful when manual techniques are used but ultimately you will have pain relief and improved motion and function afterwards.
Insurance does reimburse for physical therapy but every plan is different. As a courtesy we will verify your physical therapy benefit for you.
We accept credit, debit cards, checks, and cash.
On your first visit you will have a thorough evaluation and will also receive treatment.
Depending on your injury, please allow 1 hour to 2 hours for your first visit and 1 to 1 ½ hours for subsequent visits. This can vary depending on the type and the extent of your injury.
How many treatments you will need depends on the type and severity of your injury or condition and how you respond to treatments.
Your physical therapist needs to have a physical therapy license in the state they are providing treatment.
