FAQs

How long and how many times a week is a typical session?

Sessions are usually 60 minutes, but can be as short as 30 minutes depending on your needs and tolerance. Most clients are seen once a week for early intervention, but two or three times per week are common for outpatient appointments.  Sessions are established to best meet your needs. 

How long will I be in physical therapy?

The length of time a client is in physical therapy depends the nature of the problem and the goals of the therapy.   

Do I need a referral from my doctor?

No prescription is needed for the first 30 days of treatment as we are a direct access physical therapy provider licensed by the state of Pennsylvania. If therapy will be required beyond the 30 days, we will contact your physician, update them on your progress and obtain a script for you.

What insurance do you accept?

We are currently accepting all insurance carriers.  We will work out a payment plan and reduced rate for those in need.  Copays are due at time of visit, but can be lumped together on a weekly basis upon request.

How quickly will I see results?

For outpatient therapy, we expect to reduce pain on first visit and have improved function within 3 visits, though individual results will vary depending upon nature of injury/condition, time since injury/surgery, etc.  For early intervention or developmental concerns, all children in the past have shown progress within one month, though progress varies widely among different children and is highly dependent upon condition.

Where is the office? 

We are located on Pennsylvania Ave West going from downtown past Hickory ST and before Trinity Memorial Church, right beside Alleghany Cyclery.  There is plenty of parking in front or beside the church.

What is Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT)?

NDT is a hands on, problem solving approach for managing and treating indivduals with disorders of the central nervous system.  The individual's strengths and impairments are identified and addressed in relation to their functional abilities and limitations.  Direct handling and guidance are used to optimize function.  The individual's responses to treatment and functional activities guide the flow of each treatment session.  Engaging the individual in a desired yet challenging activity enables gains in function.
