FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY VISIT?
Please wear comfortable/athletic clothes: Shorts or sweat pants, comfortable top, socks and tennis shoes.
DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION FROM MY DOCTOR?
In most cases, yes. California has recently passed legislation that will allow you “direct access” to physical therapy without seeing an MD first, but, while the law has passed, the systems are not fully in place with insurance companies.
WHAT FORMS DO I NEED TO FILL OUT?
Unfortunately in health care today, there some forms that you will need to fill out prior to your first visit. We can email them to you so that you can do them prior to your first visit or please show up 15-20 minutes before your visit to fill out the forms.
HOW LONG DOES MY PHYSICAL THERAPY SESSION LAST?
A typical session will last approximately 60 minutes.
HOW MUCH WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY COST?
The cost of therapy varies per the insurance. Prior to your first visit, we will do our best to contact your insurance company to find out if you have a deductible, co-pay or co-insurance and then inform you of this prior. We do ask that you (the insurance holder) contact your insurance company as well and get this information. Please note, physical therapy services and payments commonly do differ from other medical services.
