FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I get treatment on my first visit or just an evaluation?

Yes, you will receive a treatment on your first visit, however, part of the first visit will be assessments and tests. The remaining visits will include more hands on treatment.

How long will each treatment last?
Your initial visit will be approximately one hour. Follow up visits will be about 45 minutes per visit depending on what treatments you are receiving.

How should I dress for therapy?
You should wear something comfortable that makes it easy for the physical therapist to evaluate your posture and area of pain. You may change into your comfortable clothing here at our office. It is highly recommended that you wear tennis shoes.

Do I have to have a referral from a physician to see a physical therapist?
In the state of Ohio, Physical Therapists can legally treat a patient without a physician's referral. If the Physical Therapist, at any time during treatment, feels that you are in need of an assessment, we will refer you to your primary physician or a physician that treats your specific disease process. Medicare and some insurance companies may require a prescription for physical therapy from a physician.
