FAQ

Does insurance cover Pilates?
Yes! Pilates is covered by most insurances such as PPO, POS, Medicare and Worker’s Comp as long as you have a physical dysfunction that has been diagnosed by a physician.

Do I need a physician's referral for physical therapy?
Yes. You can ask any type of physician for a referral for physical therapy. The referral must state what your diagnosis is.

Does insurance cover massage?
Myofascial release is the technical term for massage and it can be billed as manual therapy.  If you have been referred by a physician for a musculoskeletal problem (muscle tightness, muscle or joint pain, posture dysfunction), most likely, your insurance covers manual therapy.

I don't have insurance. What do you charge?
Initial consultation with treatment is $95 and follow-up treatments are $75.

Do you offer free screenings?
Yes. In a 15-minute free consultation we will discuss what your needs are and what we would do for you in physical therapy.

What if I am in too much pain for Pilates?
Initially, we will treat your pain through soft tissue mobilization (massage), ultrasound, electrical stimulation and/or laser light therapy. When you are ready for exercise, the therapist will develop a basic program that you will be able to handle.

How long is each physical therapy session?
50-55 minutes.

What should I expect in my P.T. session?
Every session is customized to the individual's needs. Some clients prefer to have an entire session of exercise or manual therapy, but most prefer a combination of exercise, manual therapy and modalities.

What is manual therapy?
Manual therapy is hands on treatment that may include stretching or mobilization of a joint or soft tissue massage.

What are modalities?
Modalities include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, iontophoresis, phonophoresis, paraffin, laser light therapy, heat and cold packs. The primary goal of a modality is to reduce pain, improve circulation, decrease swelling and improve relaxation or muscle tightness.

What is laser light therapy?
Also known as a cold laser because it is non-thermal, laser light therapy is a specific wavelength of light that has healing properties. When transmitted through the skin, it activates the body's nerve network, lymphatic and circulatory systems, thereby reducing pain and swelling.
