We've compiled answers to some commonly asked questions to assist you, but a phone call to our team is also always welcome.

What should I wear to PT?

Dress comfortably for your appointment. If you’re addressing your shoulder, opt for a loose-fitting T-shirt; for hip, ankle, or knee concerns, consider shorts or loose workout pants. Don’t forget to wear supportive shoes.

How long are my PT sessions?

Your initial visit will be 40 minutes with follow up appointments lasting 40-60 minutes. Appointments include a combination of exercise, manual therapy, stretching, modalities and patient education based on each patient’s needs.

What types of payment do you accept?

Cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

How much is my co-pay / co-insurance? How much will therapy cost?

Co-pays and Co-insurance amounts vary widely depending on your coverage. The cost per physical therapy session also varies depending on the services provided. Our front office is here to help – call us at 814.861.8122. We’ll verify your insurance benefits and provide the information you need.

How many sessions will I need in total?

Each patient’s diagnosis is different. Working with your referring physician, our therapists will design your care plan. Your first visit will establish this plan, outlining the care you need and estimating the required visits.

My schedule is busy. How often do I need to come?

For your convenience we offer both early morning and evening appointments. Most patients are asked to come in 2 days per week for 40-60 minute sessions. Our staff will do everything possible to work with your busy schedule.

Will my therapist communicate with my MD regarding my treatment/progress?

Your physician will promptly receive a copy of your initial evaluation and care plan within 24 hours of your first visit. As indicated, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly reports will also be sent to your doctor. Occasionally, phone calls are also utilized to communicate any changes, problems, or questions that may arise.

Should I bring a list of my medications for my first visit?

To ensure comprehensive care, we require a complete list of medications you are currently taking for your patient record. Providing details such as the medication name, dosage, and the reason you are taking it is particularly helpful. This information enables our therapists to tailor treatment techniques, considering any potential interactions with medications.
