Frequently Asked Questions

How long is a typical appointment?
First appointments are scheduled for an hour in order to complete the evaluation. Follow-up visits are typically 30 minutes but may be longer depending on your specific condition.

What should I wear?
Comfortable, loose clothing is optimal to allow for movement.

What should I expect; will I get exercises right away?
Typically, a home exercise program is given at the first visit and will be revised throughout your treatment plan. Depending on your condition, your treatment may include manual techniques, exercise or even the use of modalities such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation.

How often will I come?
Most patients attend therapy twice per week, but this will be individualized based on your condition, insurance, physician recommendation and overall progress.

What insurances do you accept?
Most insurances are accepted including Medicare, PPO's, HMO's and Workman's Comp.

How are you different from other therapy facilities?
Our therapists are all highly trained in conditions specific to the spine or their particular area of expertise and we emphasize constant continuing education with various courses throughout the year. We treat patients in a one-on-one atmosphere without the commotion of a busy gym. While gym equipment is available, you will be supervised by one of our therapists throughout each step of your treatment allowing for a more individualized treatment approach.

What if my pain increases with therapy?
Please contact our office immediately. Muscle soreness is normal as is occasional increases in pain following your evaluation because you are placed in positions that your body is not used to. However, physical therapy is not intended to increase your pain; therefore, we want to know if this occurs so we can change your treatment plan. We return all calls by end of business day unless the therapist is out of the office.
