Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physical therapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians. Our physical therapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it.
While every patient’s condition and pain is unique, your physical therapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels. The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.
As a patient you have the right to receive physical therapy at any place you choose. At Kinetic Sports & Spine Physical Therapy, you will receive the highest quality care while achieving the results you need. We pride ourselves on providing a positive, encouraging environment with well-trained, friendly staff. We are confident in our ability to help you reach your goals and live a pain-free life.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete any remaining paperwork, so you can maximize your time in your evaluation. Dress comfortably in clothes that allow easy access for the therapist to examine your problem areas. Depending on the area we are treating, either tank top or shorts for arms, back, and legs. If you're not sure which area the therapist will be treating, pick clothes that are comfortable for gentle exercises and supportive sneakers.
Our office will be happy to assist in contacting your insurance company and determining your coverage based on your individual policy. It depends on your out of network benefits or how large your deductible is and what has been met of the deductible. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact our office. We do offer different payment options for your convenience. For patients who do not have insurance, we have a very affordable cash fee, due at the time of service.
Typically, the first session lasts for 1 hour. Each session after that may be 45-60 minutes. The amount of time will be based on your specific needs, and your therapist will discuss this with you. Each patient’s diagnosis is different. Your therapist will develop a plan of care that is right for you. Our average visit for a new episode of care is 4-6 visits, the national average is 10-12. Your plan of care and number of visits will be determined during your first visit and explained to you by your physical therapist.
