All services rendered are performed during a 1:1 session. Each session is hands-on, comprehensive, and interactive. Evidence-based assessments and treatments will be used and specific to your needs. Due to the highly individualized treatments, you should be able to see improvements in a shorter amount of time than compared to traditional physical therapy clinics where you are seen with 2-3 other patients. The average amount of time required to notice a significant change can vary from person to person and be dependent on the severity of the condition. Generally patients should see an improvement within 1-4 visits given the personalized sessions. Overall, this individualized approach should save you time and money compared to other treatment strategies.
The one on one treatment approach is designed to get you better in the least amount of time and visits possible
This approach allows time to be very thorough and efficient with each patients condition. When creating a treatment plan, the patients lifestyle and specific needs are taken into account. With the focus being on one patient at a time results are achieved in a shorter period of time.
In this 45-60 min session you will meet with Dr.O for a one on one assessment of your injury or issue. An individualized treatment plan will be created from the information provided and results of the functional and manual assessments performed. The session usually includes an assessment as well as treatment. Treatment is dependent on the patients tolerance and comfort level but can include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilizations, dry needling, and therapeutic exercise. A home exercise program is also given as appropriate.
If more therapy sessions are recommended after the initial evaluation, you and Dr.O will implement the treatment plan discussed during your initial evaluation. Treatment usually includes manual interventions, exercise, and modalities as indicated.
This 30 min treatment session is primarily recommended for localized injuries. This is an available option after an initial evaluation has been performed. Consider this option if you only want dry needling with minimal/no exercise instruction.
Not sure if physical therapy will help you? If you would like to know how we could be of service to you, choose this option. This 10-15min consult can be done over the phone or in person.
**Payment plans available**
Payment is due at the start of your session. Cash, credit card, check, and Venmo are accepted. I am a licensed healthcare provider, as a result you may also use your FSA/HSA or HRA card
Am I able to be reimbursed by my insurance company for your services?
If you have out of network benefits, you will be able to be reimbursed part of what you paid. We encourage you to check with your insurance company to know what your out of network benefits are. A bill can be provided for reimbursement by your insurance company.
When I have done physical therapy in the past, I went 2-3x/week for 8 weeks. How will I be able to afford physical therapy if you don't take insurance?
Usually when you attend physical therapy clinics that accept insurance, you will be paying out of pocket until you meet your deductible. After your deductible is met, you will then pay your coinsurance and copay. Given all the fees, to attend therapy 2-3x/week for 8 weeks, you will be paying approximately $400-$1770 depending on your benefits.
At Optimum Physical therapy, your program is hands on, highly individualized, and one on one. Subsequently desired outcomes come in a shorter period of time, with less money spent, and less time in the clinic.
For patients who need multiple visits, discounted packages are available. Please contact for further information
Why don't you take insurance?
This model was chosen in order for us to provide you with the best quality of care possible. Given insurance reimbursement for services provided, it is more profitable for an in network clinic to see multiple patients at a time for 2-3x/week over a long span of time. Optimum Physical Therapy would not like to sacrifice quality of care by splitting your time with other patients. We have seen that quicker results are attained with this model of care.
Do I need a referral from my doctor to see you?
No, you do not need a referral. Physical therapists are allowed to see patients direct access. This means you are able to book an appointment with us without having to see your physician first. If you do have a referral, communication on your progress with your physician can be done upon request.
What should I wear to each session?
It is advised to wear loose fitting clothes in order for your therapist to have access to the area being treated. Dry needling and soft tissue mobilization are some of the techniques that require skin exposure.
