How Long Is Each Session?

The length of your assessment and treatment sessions depends on a number of things, mainly your individual needs. Usually, each session lasts approximately 60 minutes. Most of our patients and clients have sessions 2 or 3 days a week, although this can vary.

The length of your treatment is determined by the extent of your injuries, pain level, personal goals, and many other factors. Once you receive an evaluation, your physical therapist can work with you to determine a realistic timetable for treatment.

Do I Need a Physician’s Prescription for Physical Therapy?

Although some of our patients have a physician’s prescription, this is not necessary for physical therapy. However, most insurance companies require a physician’s prescription to allow us to bill for our services.

Free Screen

What is a Free Screen?

We offer free screens to the public at all 4 of our locations. The free screen includes a 15-minute private consultation with one of our physical therapists to discuss your pain or functional limitation difficulty.

During the session, the therapist will listen to your concerns and observe your functional difficulty, measuring areas of deficit as they arise. After this screen, your therapist will share their findings with you and help you to determine the next steps. Your therapist will also generate a letter for your doctor that outlines your functional difficulty, the therapist’s findings, and the recommended next best action steps will be discussed with you. Also at this time, we can answer any insurance questions you may have regarding your therapy.
