Do I need a physician's script to come to physical therapy?
It depends on your insurance. If you have an injury and issue that you believe can be helped by physical therapy, ask your insurance if a doctor’s script is necessary for you. If you are attending physical therapy on a cash pay arrangement, you do not need a script.
What can I expect at an appointment?
Our physical therapy sessions are generally about 45 minutes long. For your first session, you will need to arrive at least 15 minutes early for paperwork.

Then, the physical therapist will great a plan or program to help you get better and address your goals.
