Your First Visit

WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY INITIAL VISIT?

You will work with one of our physical or occupational therapy doctors who will first listen to your story and then perform a thorough evaluation to help determine the best plan of action for eliminating your pain and getting you back to the activities you love. At LPPT, you will be seen by a licensed therapist for the entirety of each visit and you will never be double booked with other clients.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?

If your health insurance will be covering the cost of your therapy, please bring your insurance card with you. If you are being treated under a Workers' Compensation caim, please bring your claim number and your case manager's contact information. If you are covered by auto insurance, please make sure you bring all pertinent information related to the case. A physician referral is not required to see a therapist but if you have one, bring it with you to your appointment.

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear shorts or workout pants that are loose around the knee. For a back or shoulder problem, a tank top or loose fitting tee shirt is always a good choice. Feel free to bring the appropriate attire with you, you will have a private space to change once you arrive.

HOW LONG WILL MY THERAPY VISITS LAST?
Treatment sessions typically last 40 minutes. Occasionally they may run a little longer.

WHO PAYS FOR MY TREATMENT?
In the majority of cases, your health insurance benefits can be applied to some or all of the cost of treatment. We also accept direct payment and we offer several options to make payment convenient for you. Please give our patient services department a call to discuss any insurance questions and to clarify any payment questions you might have at 405.522.7488.

If you have more questions or need clarification on any of the above, please give us a call at one of our physical therapy office locations throughout Montana. Save time by completing your intake paperwork beforehand and bringing it with you.
