We believe that the support and camaraderie amongst our staff and patients, combined with our expert clinical knowledge and skills, makes your healing process enjoyable and extremely effective.

ACL Tears

The anterior cruciate ligament, also known as the ACL, is a major ligament in your knee. It is a durable tissue band that connects your thigh bone (femur) to your shinbone (tibia) and is typically torn during sports that require sudden stops or directional changes, such as basketball, volleyball, and soccer. Although physical therapy cannot completely repair the ACL once torn, it can aid in the healing process by reducing pain and restoring full range of motion to the affected joint.

Arthritis

There are two main types of arthritis: rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system attacks the lining of your joints, causing swelling and inflammation. Osteoarthritis is caused by repetitive joint use and typically develops over time, although injury or infections can also lead to this condition. Physical therapy reduces pain caused by arthritis and helps improve the overall function of your joints.

Back Pain

Physical therapy is a great alternative to invasive surgery for those experiencing back pain. Your physical therapist will work with you to develop a plan with your specific symptoms in mind, involving stretching, massage, and exercise.
Many patients who have been involved in a car crash suffer from whiplash, a condition where the neck is strained from a rapid back-and-forth motion. Whiplash can lead to back and neck pain, as well as headaches and migraines. Physical therapy can treat whiplash through stretching, range of motion exercises, and massage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

Do I need a doctor’s referral for physical therapy?

Physical therapy falls under the category of “direct access” and does not require a doctor’s referral. However, some insurance plans may require you to visit a doctor before your coverage can take effect. If your physical therapy may take longer than 30 days, your doctor may also need to be contacted to obtain a referral.

Is physical therapy covered by insurance?

In most cases, insurance plans cover physical therapy. Many insurance companies require a doctor’s referral, and may also not offer coverage of all aspects of your treatment. You should always check with your insurance company or review your plan to know what type of coverage you have!

How long does physical therapy take?

Because every patient’s situation is unique, there is no specific or guaranteed time for how long you can expect your physical therapy to take. Most sessions with a physical therapist last between 30 to 90 minutes 2 or 3 times a week, but your overall treatment may take a month or longer to achieve results.

Is physical therapy painful?

One of the main goals of physical therapy is pain relief. Although you may feel some soreness after stretching injured or recovering parts of your body, physical therapy should never be painful or make you feel unsafe. Communication is key! We aim to make your sessions as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, and it’s important to work with your physical therapist to achieve the best possible results.
