What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieve pain and preserve, enhance or restore movement and function. Physical therapists are licensed medical experts in musculoskeletal conditions. Physical therapists evaluate movement, identify the cause of pain, and work to eliminate it using specialized hands-on techniques, exercises and equipment.
Can I go to any physical therapy I choose?
Yes and no. Your insurance may determine which physical therapy company you can be treated at under your plan. Medicare and PPO plans will allow you to visit the pt clinic of your choice. Many HMO plans allow this as well however, some HMO plans have exclusive contracts with specific physical therapy companies and under those plans you must be treated by the contracted PT.
