What should I wear?

Loose, comfortable clothing is always best.  Baggy t-shirts, sweats, and/or shorts are preferred.  We do ask that you wear sneakers (no flip flops!)

Do you participate with my insurance?

We participate with most major insurance plans.  Please see our “Insurances Accepted” menu to see if your insurance is included.  You can always call to speak with our front office staff to verify that information as well.

How much do I pay?

Each insurance policy is different.  You are responsible for your daily copay at the time of each service.  Your copay will be verified at the time of your first session.

Do I need a prescription or referral from my doctor?

No.  In 2006, New York passed a law regarding “Direct Access”, allowing an individual to be seen by a physical therapist without a prescription from his/her doctor.  (please see Direct Access)  However, some insurance plans still require a prescription in order to reimburse for physical therapy services.

What should I bring with me?

Your prescription from your doctor (if applicable), insurance card, and any questions that you may have.

How long is each session?

Approximately 45 min to one hour.

How long will I be coming to physical therapy?

Every individual and every injury is different so that is difficult to answer.  A standard prescription states 2-3x/week for 6 weeks.  Your therapist will determine the length of time required for optimal treatment for your specific condition.

Will I be in pain?

No.  Mild discomfort may occur simply from new movements or exercises but we do not believe in pushing through pain to achieve your goals.

What do I do at home??

At the time your initial evaluation, your therapist will put together a home exercise routine for you to perform at home.
