Will it Hurt?

Our compassionate and gentle approach will minimize pain as much as possible while maximizing movement and function. We will develop goals based on what you feel you want to achieve. Your treatment will be catered to these goals and to your needs.

Our approach to treatment primarily consists of not forcing joints or muscles beyond what comes naturally. We incorporate techniques to correct mechanics while strengthening so that exercise is not painful and you experience success and gain confidence.

Do I need a doctor’s referral to start therapy?

If you are seeking occupational or hand therapy you will need a physician referral or prescription to begin.

If you have Medicare, you must have a prescription from your doctor to begin physical or occupational therapy.

Our physical therapists have a Direct Access license to treat you without a physician’s prescription for 14 business days. We will send your initial evaluation report to your physician and will need to be signed to continue treatment beyond the 14 business days.
