We perform various types of treatments, and will customize a program combining the best treatments geared toward your particular problem. The types of treatments we do include Manual Therapy, Neuro-dynamic techniques, soft tissue massage, deep tissue massage, joint mobilization, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, stretching, functional strengthening therapeutic exercises, among others. The treatment program will vary based on your needs, and will be performed in a private treatment room as well as a gym setting using a variety of athletic and rehabilitation equipment.
Upon arrival at our office, you will meet your personal physical therapist who will work closely with you throughout your entire recovery process. You will be asked to fill out some basic paperwork (don't forget to bring in your prescription for physical therapy and any written information -- operative reports, X-ray and/or MRI results -- you have about your injury).
The physical therapist consultant will then ask you a series of questions about your past and present medical conditions, before performing a comprehensive evaluation of your muscles, joints, nerves, tendons, and ligaments including range of motion, strength and functional testing. Based on your physician's diagnosis, our prognosis, and your personal goals, an individual treatment plan will be devised. You will receive treatment and home exercises on your first visit. Future appointments will also be scheduled.
Achieve Orthopedic Rehab Institute works with a personal billing service, designed to keep our services affordable. Our purpose is to minimize your out-of-pocket expense and ensure your health insurance covers as much of your physical therapy treatments as possible. We take care of health insurance verification and worker's compensation authorization at no additional cost to the patient. Your out-of-pocket expense will vary depending on your insurance policy. Prescribed physical therapy is typically covered—at least partially—by most insurance companies. Depending on your insurance policy, you may or may not have a co-payment for each visit. Most of our patients have between a $0 -$20 co pay per office visit.
