Patient Resources


What should I bring to my first physical therapy visit?

  • Completed Patient Intake Forms
  • Any pertinent medical records (MRI report, surgical report)
  • A form of payment. We accept cash, all major credit cards, and HSA cards.

What should I expect during my first physical therapy visit?

Your Doctor of Physical Therapy will spend about an hour with you to determine the source and cause of your injury/pain.

From there we will come up with a comprehensive plan that will maximize our chances for a complete and successful course of care, which may include:

Manual Therapy | Exercises | Education

What should I wear to my treatment sessions?

Comfortable athletic type clothing (t-shirt, sports bra, sweatpants or shorts) that allows for easy access to your injury site and allows you to easily move about is going to be your best bet.

How long should I allow for my appointments?

For all visits we recommend on planning for a high-quality, 1-hour session.

Will my care be covered by insurance?

We do not know, as it completely depends on your plan and the coverage it allows for.  Every plan is different.  We recommend you call your insurance company and ask about your “Out of Network physical therapy benefits” to get an idea of how much “coverage” you might have.

How often will I need to come to physical therapy?

The frequency and duration of a physical therapy episode of care will greatly depend on your goals and your current condition. As a clinic who puts the patient first, our “more care, less volume” models means we will get you BETTER, FASTER.
