Guide to Physical Therapy
- Physical Therapy evaluation and treatment needs Doctor's prescription. For private pay/self pay patients, Doctor's prescription/referral is not needed.
- We offer our service in our outpatient clinic and to the patient's home for home bound patients if patient's insurance covers home therapy visits.
- Homebound patients do not mean a patient has to "bed bound or bedridden", instead, it means that leaving home takes considerable and taxing effort, is not recommended because of conditions that prevent a person from leaving home without help such as using a wheelchair, walker, special transportation or of another person.
- our initial visit will be an evaluation/assessment/physical examination and consultation. The evaluation process is a way of determining your physical therapy needs. After the evaluation, your physical therapist or physical therapist assistant can proceed with your initial treatment depending on the physical problems found from your evaluation.
- Our evaluation or assessment is comprehensive and multifactorial, which means that we do not only assess the injured part or the part that has the problem, but we also assess other areas of your bodies that contribute to your injury or physical problem.
- Soreness is common after your initial visits especially when you are not accustomed to doing exercises. Any increasing, insidious and intolerable pain of any types must be reported to your physical therapist right away and that exercises producing these type of pain must be stopped until you consult with your physical therapist.

- We offer free screening exam or consultation in our clinic location by appointment only, for persons who think they need physical therapy treatment . This service does not require Medical Doctor's prescription.
- Physical Therapy screening exam/consultation is a process where a physical therapist performs differential medical screening to determine if a person needs physical therapy service. Think this like a medical doctor performing a consultation or physical exam to you. Our physical therapist will determine if the patient's medical complaints and condition are not within the scope of physical therapy practice, in this case, our physical therapist makes a referral to the appropriate medical providers. If the patient's medical complaints are within the scope of physical therapy practice, we will coordinate with your physician in acquiring prescription/referral if you will be using your insurance or proceed to treatment if you wish to pay cash.
- Our physical therapist through the process of screening exam and evaluation will determine the appropriate specialty service we have and further health care referral in addressing your health problem.
- We incorporate health and wellness principles thereby improving your total well-being, preventing reinjury and hastening your recovery.
