Do I Need to See My Doctor Before I Get Physical Therapy?
Many patients who come to us have received a physical therapy referral from their doctor. Some do not consider physical therapy as a treatment option to manage pain, stiffness, limited mobility, or other symptoms until their doctor brings it to their attention.
However, due to Florida Direct Access, you do not need a physician referral to begin physical therapy treatment. There was a time when patients were limited to only the places that their physician referred them. But now, you can choose to go to any physical therapist at any time. If you need physical therapy rehab, you can make an appointment with Physical Therapy Now directly.
How Much Does Physical Therapy Cost?
The cost of physical therapy varies depending on your needs and circumstances. The best course of action is to contact your physical therapist directly to discuss your options. The PT staff will check with your insurance provider, Medicaid or Medicare coverage, or any other financial factors that might impact your costs.
Our primary goal is to provide you with the treatment you need, so we will make sure that you are fully informed about your options and any fees attached to services before you begin your treatment.
How Long Do Physical Therapy Sessions Last?
Our goal for sessions is to keep them no shorter or longer than thirty to sixty minutes each. There are special circumstances when a patient session requires longer, more focused care or when the patient can only tolerate working for under thirty minutes. Your physical therapist will work with you to create an individual treatment plan and work according to your abilities and progress at each session.
Your treatment plan will consist of multiple sessions over time. There is no set period for each treatment plan. You and your physical therapist will work toward the set goals and continue until those goals are reached, and you are back to your best possible health.
