Frequently Asked Questions

  • What happens during my first visit?

      The therapist will perform an evaluation to determine any asymmetries and deficits you have within your body. A plan is subsequently developed with your input. This includes how many times you should see the therapist per week, how many weeks you will need therapy, home programs, patient education, short-term/long-term goals, and what is expected after discharge from therapy. This plan is created with input from you, your therapist and your physician.

  • What do I need to bring with me?

      Make sure to bring any information, radiology reports, referrals, prescriptions that have been provided to you by your physician. In addition, please bring your insurance card and payment to cover you deductible, copay or coinsurance.

  • How should I dress?

      You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear shorts. For a shoulder problem, a tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose-fitting shirt and pants, again so we can perform a thorough examination.

  • How long will each treatment last?

      Treatment sessions typically last 60 minutes per visit.

  • How many visits will I need?

      This is highly variable. You may need one visit or you may need months of care. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated monthly and when you see your doctor, we will provide you with a progress report with our recommendations.

  • Who pays for the treatment?

      In most cases, health insurance will cover your treatment. Click on our insurance link above for a summary of insurances we accept and make sure you talk to our receptionist so we can help you clarify your insurance coverage.

  • Can I pay online?

      Yes. Please go to our pay online page to select your location.

  • Is physical therapy painful?

      For many patients, one of the primary objectives is pain relief. This is frequently accomplished with hands-on techniques, modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and/or heat or cold therapy. Movement often provides pain relief as well. Your physical therapist will provide you with the appropriate exercises not only for pain relief but to recover range of motion, strength and endurance.

      In some cases, physical therapy techniques can be painful. For example, recovering knee range of motion after total knee replacement or shoulder range of motion after shoulder surgery may be painful. Your physical therapist will utilize a variety of techniques to help maximize your treatment goals. It is important that you communicate the intensity, frequency, and duration of pain to your therapist. Without this information, it is difficult for the therapist to adjust your treatment plan.

  • What happens if my problem or pain returns?

      Flare ups are possible. If you have a flare up (exacerbation), give us a call. We may suggest you come back to see us, return to your doctor, or simply modify your daily activities or exercise routine.

  • Is my therapist licensed?

      All physical therapists at The Training Room have their doctorate degree in physical therapy. They are all licensed by their respective state physical therapy boards.
