How do I know whether I should see a physical therapist?
If you have chronic pain, a chronic condition, or an injury, then you might want to see a physical therapist. Or if you’ve recently undergone surgery, then you might have already received a referral to see a physical therapist.
More specifically, you might need a physical therapist if you have:
- Any kind of pain that has lasted for longer than 3 months
- A chronic condition like arthritis or diabetes
- Pain from a recent or old injury
- Had a recent surgery you’re currently recovering from
For many patients’ circumstances, physical therapy is especially effective. In fact, physical therapists believe that any patient can benefit from physical therapy. It’s focused on managing and rehabilitating pain, chronic conditions, injuries, traumas, or disabilities, as well as preventing further complications.
If you’re an athlete, then you could benefit even if you’re not experiencing any issues or pain, as physical therapy can help with injury prevention too.
How often should I see a physical therapist?
The number and frequency of sessions you’ll need depends on your particular kind of pain and condition, as well as your personal needs and your progress during therapy. A physical therapist will help you develop a treatment plan and recommend how many physical therapy sessions you should have. After each session, the therapist will evaluate your progress. If your rehabilitation is going more quickly than anticipated, then the physical therapist might recommend fewer sessions.
Generally, patients will need one or two sessions a week for one or two months, but this varies depending on the patient. Some patients benefit from annual follow-ups, while others benefit from occasional physical therapy throughout their lives.
Is physical therapy covered by insurance?
Under the Affordable Care Act, most marketplace health insurance plans, as well as Medicare and workers’ compensation, cover rehabilitative services that are medically necessary. We cannot guarantee that your physical therapy will be automatically covered by your insurance plan, but there’s a very good chance that it will! You’re more than welcome to contact us to find out whether your insurance will cover physical therapy. You can also contact us for a consultation.
