My doctor sent me to another facility for physical therapy; I would rather come to see you. Would that be OK?
Of course, all patients have the right to choose where they attend physical therapy. We work diligently to coordinate our services with all medical doctors and other healthcare professionals.
Do you accept my insurance?
We accept most insurance plans except Medicaid, all HMO plans, PHCS and all United Healthcare plans.
What if you don’t take my insurance? What if I don’t have insurance? Can I still come to PT?
Yes, Theradynamics offers discounted, flat-rate pricing for physical therapy services. Call to discuss the details.
Will you be filing claims to my insurance company?
Yes, we will submit claims on your behave to primary and secondary insurances. As a courtesy, we will submit appeals to your insurance company for denials.
What if I cannot get an appointment within 24-48 hours of calling?
We maintain a daily cancellation list and often work patients in for appointments that suit their needs.
I have surgery scheduled. Should I come to PT before my operation?
This would have to be addressed with your surgeon, but research shows that a patient’s preoperative status directly affects their postoperative outcome. The therapists at STRAIT PT can help you reach your optimal pre-op status.
I just had surgery. Does Theradynamics Physical Therapy treat patients after orthopedic surgery?
Yes, we do. Theradynamics Physical Rehab is an area leader in postsurgical rehabilitation. We treat a variety of orthopedic surgeries, including ankle reconstruction, knee replacement/ACL and ligament tears, hip replacements, open reduction of fractures, back and neck fusions, discectomies, laminectomies and disc replacements, rotator cuff and labrum tears, ulnar nerve and medial nerve (carpal tunnel syndrome) releases and more. With some of the most highly trained therapists in the area, you will receive top-notch postoperative care at Theradynamics.
Do you work with Workers’ Compensation?
Yes, we do. Workers’ Compensation claims involve a lot of paperwork, and many PT practices do not want to be hassled with the extra work. The staff at STRAIT PT is highly trained in dealing with these types of claims and has a close relationship with many of the insurance adjusters, which helps expedite your claim.
Should I heat or ice my injury?
Generally, ice is used for most injuries. If your injury is new, you should ice it three to ten times per day for 15 minutes each time, depending on the amount of inflammation. Hot packs can be used for arthritic conditions, stiff joints and muscles. Do not exceed 15 minutes three times per day.
My child got injured playing a sport. Can you help him/her get back on the field?
Yes, we can. In fact, Theradynamics specializes in treating young athletes ages 5 to 21. All of our therapists are athletic, sport-enthusiast parents who have the professional skills to address all common injuries of young athletes. With our help, your child will be back on the field as quickly as possible, without sacrificing safety or risking further injury.
What happens after we have finished our Insurance-covered Physical Therapy? Do you have any on-going programs?
Yes, we have the Theradynamics Step program which is designed specifically for patients who have been discharged from PT and would like to continue with a structured, medically supervised program (at Theradynamics Physical Rehab). This program is only offered to former patients.
What is TheraStep?
Patients are scheduled for two 1hr appointments per week. They learn how to document their exercises properly, track their progress, implement functional and/or sport-specific exercises.
Why is TheraStep better than gym membership?
It's safer than a gym because we know the patients medical history, medications, surgeries & other conditions that would impact their exercise prescription. It's a way to give them exercise progressions, address other issues they may have (Ex. overweight, low cardiovascular endurance, weak core, etc) while keeping them safe from injury. We empower them to get back to living their life.
