  • Do I need a prescription or referral?

    This is dependent on the type of insurance the patient has. However, if their insurance does not require a referral the patient can only be seen in NYS for 10 visits or 30 days, whichever comes first. This is called Direct Access.

  • What is done in a physical therapy session?

    On your first visit of physical therapy, you will meet with your therapist and discuss your symptoms and past medical history. There is an element of education that will be provided to help discover if activities in your daily routine are contributing to your problem. The therapist will usually apply hands-on techniques, whether it be joint manipulation, general palpitations and/or stretching. Exercises are incorporated into your session to provide you with a well rounded program to aid in your recovery. Your therapist will discuss your diagnosis and plan of care. Most therapists also provide you with a home exercise program to continue your road to recovery at home.

  • Is physical therapy going to be painful?

    Many times, the objective of physical therapy is pain relief. This can be achieved by hands-on techniques, such as soft tissue work and/or stretching; modalities such as class IV laser, electrical stimulation and/or hot/cold therapy; and/or therapeutic exercise. In some situations, physical therapy goals may require the therapist to use techniques that may be painful to achieve a greater range of motion or muscle strength.
