Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear for physical therapy?

Dress in comfortable and loose fitting clothing for treatment and exercises. Athletic wear, t-shirts and layered clothing would be ideal for your sessions. Feel free to change when you arrive. If you are coming for knee or back treatment, it is best to wear shorts.

How long will my physical therapy sessians last?

The first session of physical therapy will be your initial evaluation which typically last from 60 to 90 minutes. All follow up visits will be approximately 30 to 60 minutes depending on the needs of the patient.

I don’t have insurance. Can you work out a financial agreement with me?

Because Advanced Physical Therapy is privately owned and independently operated, we are one of the few clinics willing to work out an individual payment plan. Simply contact our office manager to make an arrangement that works with your lifestyle and budget.

I just want to be in better shape, can Advanced Physical Therapy help?

Yes. Advanced Physical Therapy offers a variety of services, including personal training, Pilates, and a weight loss program in addition to physical therapy. We can help you increase your speed and endurance and perfect your technique. We are truly a center for athletes.

How often will I be coming for therapy and how long?

Your therapist will consult with your physician to determine the length and frequency of care that is most appropriate for you. Your therapist will remain in close contact with your doctor throughout your treatment via progress notes and phone calls.

Can I just make an appointment or do I need a referral from a doctor?

No. Anyone can have an evaluation for physical therapy services. With consultation between other practitioners of the healing arts, our therapists will determine if a physician’s referral is necessary. If you plan to use your insurance benefits, a physician’s referral is required to ensure proper payment and billing.

I’ve had bad experiences with other physical therapists and hated every moment. How will this be different?

Many Advanced Physical Therapy patients comment on the huge difference in their experience here versus other clinics. Advanced Physical Therapy is a very happy, friendly, and calming environment. We realize that we are treating people, not injuries or diagnoses, and you’ll feel the difference immediately. “I had previous physical therapy a long time ago for the same shoulder. I did not like the experience. Wish I had come to Advanced Physical Therapy then and I would have completed the therapy and not have my current problem.”

Are the clinics wheelchair accessible?

Yes. Just call the clinic before you leave home or from the parking lot and we will help you with transfers and equipment. All of our locations are on street level with no steps and easy access.

What should I do if I have to cancel?

Kindly call us and let us know.

What should I expect?

You will be introduced to your physical therapist who will talk with you about your medical history and perform an evaluation. Your therapist will evaluate strength, ranges of motion, general mobility and functional limitations. Treatment will start the same day.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please arrive about 15 minutes early to complete paperwork and plan to spend an hour with your therapist. Bring your insurance card and your doctor’s prescription written within thirty days of your visit. If your injury is due to an auto or work-related accident, it is helpful to provide your claim number and contact person before your first visit.
