FAQ

What is physical therapy?

  • Physical therapy is a non-invasive discipline that helps individuals develop, maintain and restore maximum body movement and physical function. Physical therapy can help clients recover from an injury, relieve pain, prevent future injury or deal with a chronic condition. It can be applied at any age or stage of life. The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to improve health and quality of life.

What should I expect on my first visit at Revamp.

  • Physical Therapy: Your initial physical therapy appointment will start with a private conversation between you and your therapist. Your therapist will assess your overall movement history, your medical history, and your goals moving forward. Your therapist will then perform a thorough physical evaluation. Through this assessment, your therapist will analyze your movement patterns, ROM, strength measurements, and your response to various tests/measures in order to determine the root cause of your injury, how to rehabilitate your injury, and how to avoid reinjury. Your therapist will then create a treatment plan that targets your specific goals and desired outcomes. Your first visit will last approximately 60 minutes. After the evaluation, we will have a specific road map for the treatment plan including, how many times you should see the therapist per week, how many weeks you will need therapy, what exercises, movements, or stretches you should begin performing at home, patient education, short-term/long-term goals, and what is expected at discharge from therapy.

 

The therapist will discuss the following: 

  • Your medical history

  • Your current problems/complaints

  • Pain intensity, what aggravates and eases the problem

  • How this is impacting your daily activities or your functional limitations

  • Your goals with physical therapy

  • Medications, tests, and procedures related to your health

 

  • Performance Coaching:  Your initial performance coaching appointment will start with a private conversation between you and your trainer. Your trainer will work with you to assess your movement history and your fitness/performance goals moving forward.  Your trainer will analyze your movement pattern during the performance of common movements like jumping, squatting, deadlift, etc. in order to determine baseline measures. Your trainer will then develop a training plan fit for your abilities. At the conclusion of your session, your trainer will work with you to schedule follow-up sessions as needed.

 

For your first appointment, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Payment will be collected at the beginning of your appointment.

 

  • How long will my physical therapy visit last? Approximately 60 minutes

  • Do I need a physician referral?  In the state of California, Physical Therapists have direct access. This means we are allowed to evaluate and treat a patient without a doctor's prescription. However, for continued treatment greater than 45 days or 12 visits, whichever comes first, a physical therapy referral from your MD, DPM, DO or ND is required for insurance billing purposes. Also, dependent on your insurance carrier, some insurances also require a physical therapy prescription showing medical necessity to receive possible reimbursement. Call our office and our administrator will be happy to verify with your insurance company.

  • What should I wear? Please wear comfortable and athletic clothing. Closed toe shoes, preferably tennis shoe/sneaker.

What are my payment options?

We accept cash, all major credit cards, Medicare, and are in-network with certain insurance companies.
