FAQ

Yes, but we are out of network with all the insurance companies. The nature of bringing the clinic to your home/office and seeing one patient for at least 60 minutes would not allow us to deliver quality care if we were to partner up with the insurance company. We are not a Medicare Provider so law prevents us from providing Medicare patients with what would be considered “normally covered services.”

As an out-of-network provider, we are choosing to see fewer patients in a day which will allow the therapist to deliver a high quality of care and that means getting to the root cause of your problem. Each of our patients receives at least 60 minutes of 1-on-1 care from an experienced, highly skilled, board-certified Doctor of Physical Therapy every time at the comfort of your home/office using a holistic approach with hands-on treatment.

When you consider the time savings of trips to the physical therapy clinic and the value of resolving your pain faster in fewer visits, going to Empowerment Physical Therapy becomes a bargain.

First and foremost, your commitment in getting back to doing what you love.

We need you to take ownership of this rehabilitation process and become an active participant. When exercises or stretches are needed, a Doctor of Physical Therapy will walk you through them thoroughly. These home exercises are designed to accelerate your recovery and keep your window of improvement open. It is critical that you perform them as instructed to complement your therapy sessions. Therefore, your part is just as important as ours.

Since you have direct access to your physical therapist after the first session, do not hesitate (seriously - we encourage it) to reach out with any questions/concerns throughout the healing process.

Each visit is either 60 or 90 minutes. You will be treated by a boards certified Doctor of Physical Therapy every time  because your health simply deserves nothing but the best!

This will depend on the complexity and nature of your injury.  The aim is to help you get back to doing what you want as quickly and as safely as possible. We will have a better understanding of the root of your problem after the initial assessment. An acute injury that happened recently may require 1-2 visits over 2-4 weeks for it to resolve. On the other hand, a chronic issue may require 2-3 visits over the span of 6-12 weeks  before you can self manage the injury appropriately.

It is difficulty to say exactly how many sessions will you need to get back to 100%. However, we can give you a pretty good estimate after your first visit.

Payment is due on the day of the session. You can pay via cash, check, or credit/debit card. 
To make your experience as comfortable as possible, we recommend that you change into a set of gym clothes during the session so that you can move freely and exposed the necessary body part as needed.  

Great question! The session will not be worst than what you are at right now. It’s kinda like dark chocolate - bittersweet, and it’s good for you...or what the folks at the nursing home would call it, the “sweet pain”.

There’s no doubt that physical therapy is a very palpable  experience and as such the treatments can be a little bit uncomfortable at times but we will always strive to be as gentle as possible to resolve the root of your problem as fast as we can.

Before we attempt any physical therapy techniques, we will tell you exactly what is about to happen and what you should do, if necessary. Your feedback to the techniques/exercises are necessary throughout the course of the treatment as they will serve to gauge the intensity of the sessions. Under any circumstances that you feel like the technique is too much, simply ask us to stop and we will.

Much like the side effects that accompanies medication, minor pain and discomfort is an unavoidable part of physical therapy. Feeling sore after the session is normal.

That depends on the nature of the injury. Over the years, we understand that movement is medicinal, in moderation. Therefore, bed rest is not encourage but pushing beyond what your body can handle is neither recommended. More often than not, you can continue your level of physical activity to some degree as we treat your injury.

The longer you wait after an injury to seek treatment, the longer it will take for you to get back to a state of well-being prior to your injury. You will likely compensate your movement in order to go about your day. Therefore, it is imperative that you seek out treatment earlier, whether it be physical therapy or something else.

Consider this example. A NFL player is surrounded with an extensive medical team to ensure that the athlete can get care as early as possible so he/she can go back onto the field. Yes, they do get pay an enormous amount of money for what they do but have you thought about your loses if you do not seek care early. Why should the approach be different for your health?
