  • What does a treatment session look like?
    Every session is customized to the client. Each treatment option is carefully chosen based on the client's concerns, presentation of their pain/injury (aggravating factors, medical history, severity of symptoms, etc.), and their goals. Generally, each session will consist of manual therapy (the hands on work), corrective exercises, and education.
  • What does the Physical Therapist expect from the client?
    Our Doctor of Physical Therapy expects that you come in with an open mind and willingness to work hard. We want our clients to be as independent as possible with their plan of care, so we really strive to provide a lot of education to help the client overcome their pain/injury and self manage their symptoms. While our 1-on-1 treatment sessions are very important and beneficial, you will be spending more time away from the treatment table than on it. So it is very important that you follow the recovery plan that is given to you by your therapist. Consistency is key when it comes to overcoming pain or injuries.
  • How do I pay for my sessions/treatment?
    We accept cash, check, credit card, and Venmo, as well as HSA/FSA payments. You will also be provided with proper documentation that you can self submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.
  • How long does a session last?
    Evaluations and Movement Assessments are 60-75 minutes and treatment sessions are 60 minute appointments. During this session, you will work 1-on-1 with our Doctor of Physical Therapy.
  • What should I bring to my first session?
    Nothing specific is required for your first session. We do ask that you have the online Evaluation Accelerator Form completed prior to your first session. It is helpful if you bring anything related to your specific concern/condition, but not required. Some examples include: + If you are having pain with running, bring your running shoes + If you are having pain with lifting/CrossFitting, bring the shoes you train in, bonus if you have any videos of your lifts for our Doctor of Physical Therapy to review + If you have had imaging (MRI/x-ray) those results can be helpful
  • What should I wear to my sessions?
    You should wear anything you are comfortable in. We will be moving during all of our sessions, so it is helpful to wear clothes that you are comfortable moving in. Many people wear workout clothes to their sessions. As mentioned in the "what to bring to my first session," it is helpful it you bring your workout, lifting, running, CrossFit shoes, etc. This helps the therapist evaluate your movement in a way that best mimics how you are typically performing the movement.
  • How many sessions will it take for me to see progress?
    Most clients see progress within the first few sessions! However, every client is different and every injury/pain is different. After your initial assessment, our Doctor of Physical Therapy will be able to provide you with specific recommendations and a timeline for your recovery. On average, a client's initial plan of care is typically 10 visits. Because everyone and every injury/pain is unique, we offer multiple packages and programs to best meet your specific needs and help you meet your goals!
  • I have completed my treatment plan, what is next?
    Our clients love working with us! When you are done with your initial treatment plan, feeling great, and back to your favorite activities, that doesn't mean you have to stop working with us. Many of our clients continue working with us on a monthly basis for maintenance care, injury prevention, performance improvement, and to make sure they continue to feel great overall!
