What is Physical Therapy? It is a therapy for preserving, enhancing, or restoring movement and physical function, impairments, or disabilities utilizing therapeutic exercise, modalities, education, and training. Physical Therapists have over six years of schooling. Most hold a Doctorate.
At Therapy Partners, we firmly believe in Manual Physical Therapy. Hands-on care has been proven to help with rehabilitation. It is an essential part of rehab for most patients with a wide variety of injuries.
Depending on your needs, manual techniques can include soft tissue mobilization, trigger point release, joint mobilization, Myofascial release, and more. Using these techniques before exercise or stretching will retrain your body better with less discomfort. At other times, we reserve hands-on work to relax muscle or joint irritation for the end of your session.
While insurance typically covers Physical Therapy services, we strive to confirm your benefits with you at the start of your care. Insurance programs vary from plan to plan. We strongly suggest contacting your insurance carrier to discuss your Physical Therapy benefits with them. Manual Physical Therapy does not require any specific insurance authorization.
