Frequently Asked Questions

What do physical therapists do?
Many people are familiar with physical therapists’ work helping patients with orthopedic problems, such as low back pain or knee surgeries, to reduce pain and regain function. Others may be aware of the treatment that physical therapists provide to assist patients recovering from a stroke, e.g. assisting them with recovering use of their limbs and walking again.

Because physical therapists are experts in movement and function, we do not confine our talents to treating people who are ill. A large part of a physical therapist’s program is directed at preventing injury, loss of movement, and even surgery. Physical therapists work as consultants in industrial settings and provide services to athletes at all levels.

The cornerstones of a physical therapist’s treatment are therapeutic exercise and functional training. In addition to “hands-on” care, physical therapists also educate patients to take care of themselves and to perform certain exercises on their own. Physical therapists also use methods such as ultrasound (which uses high frequency waves to produce heat), hot packs, and ice. Although other kinds of practitioners will offer some of these treatments as “physical therapy,” it’s important for you to know that physical therapy can only be provided by qualified physical therapists or by physical therapist assistants, who must complete a 2-year education program and who work only under the direction and supervision of physical therapists.

Most forms of physical therapy treatment are covered by your insurance, but the coverage will vary with each plan. Most states do not legally require patients to see their physicians before seeing a physical therapist. Most of the time all you have to do is ask your doctor if physical therapy is right for you.

Why is physical therapy a good choice?
More than half of all Americans experience pain that limits function. However, many don’t even know that physical therapists are well equipped to not only treat pain but also its source. Our goal as physical therapists is to correct your imbalances in posture, restore your motion and muscle strength, and recondition injured tissues to allow you to be pain free in your daily activities. We are the biomechanical specialists. We find the source of your pain and fix it.
Do I need a physician referral to receive therapy?
Sometimes. If your primary health insurance plan is not Medicare, there is a good chance that you will not need a physician’s referral to participate in skilled physical therapy. If your primary health insurance is Medicare, you will need a referral from a physician. If you are interested in learning your benefits regarding physical therapy, you are welcome to come by our office during business hours. Our billing department can verify your benefits and will notify you that day.
Does your facility submit claims to my insurance company?
As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card and driver license to ensure that we have the necessary information.
