What should I bring to my appointment?
Any questions or concerns you have regarding your injury, health, or movement
Loose fitting clothes that you can move in, shorts if it is a leg injury (hip, thigh, knee, leg, ankle/foot), tank tops are preferable for necks and shoulders
Your prescription (if you have one, but it is not necessary)
What can I expect at my first appointment?
An open discussion on what is going on, why, and the possible factors preventing optimal pain free movement
A thorough movement assessment that will look at how the body moves as a whole as well as the detailed parts relating to the injury.
Explanations on how the findings of the examination relate to the current situation and the likely scenarios to resolve the injury.
Specific interventions (manual therapy, exercises, etc.) to decrease pain, aide in recovery, and optimize movement
Where are we located?
We can are currently practicing in Asheville, NC.
We are also able to provide services at the clients’s health club, gym, or home.
If you do not live in the area we are able to perform consultations via googlehangouts, skype, etc.
Do I need a prescription?
No. Physical Therapists are an autonomous profession and do not require a prescription unless required by the patient's insurance.
Do we take insurance?
We do not deal directly with your insurance company. However, we provide an itemized receipt that you will be able to submit to your insurance for out-of-network benefits.
Why we don’t take insurance?
Unfortunately, traditional insurance models prevent us from treating patients in the most efficient manner. The low reimbursement rates coupled with increased regulations and paperwork significantly reduce the amount of time available to spend with patients. As an independent practice we are able to spend an hour of one-on-one time to provide the best care. This increase in attention, manual therapy, and quality of care leads to quicker recoveries. At traditional insurance clinics it may be necessary to attend physical therapy 2-3 times a week for 6 weeks. At our clinic the visits significantly drop and very few people need to come more than once a week for a couple weeks.
