WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY INITIAL VISIT?


You will work with one of our movement professionals who will first listen to your story and then perform a thorough evaluation to help determine the best plan for getting you back to the activities you love. You will be seen by a licensed therapist for the entirety of each visit and you will not be double booked with other clients.

Your therapist will discuss the following:

  • Your medical history.
  • Your current problems/complaints.
  • Pain intensity, what aggravates and eases the problem.
  • How this is impacting your daily activities and/or your functional limitations.
  • Your physical goals.
  • Medications, tests, and procedures related to your health.

You will then participate in a 3D functional movement assessment where your therapist will analyze the following:

  • Range of Motion
  • Strength
  • Balance
  • Coordination

Your therapist will identify the main issues responsible for your pain. A treatment plan related to the problem and focused on your goals will be developed with your help. We believe in your active participation in the recovery process. This plan will include visit frequency, a home exercise program, education, your goals, and what the expected time frame will be for you to achieve your goals.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?


Please bring your therapy referral, if you have one. However, a physician referral is not required to see a therapist. You are free to choose your therapy provider and seek care directly. If your insurance is covering the cost of your therapy, please bring your insurance card. If you are covered by Workers' Compensation, 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.

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. For a shoulder problem, a tank top or loose fitting tee shirt is always a good choice. Wearing clothing that allows access to the injured area ensures your therapist can perform a thorough examination. Feel free to bring the appropriate attire with you. You will have space to change once you arrive.

HOW LONG WILL MY THERAPY VISITS LAST?
Treatment sessions typically last 45 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!
