Mindful Movement Physical Therapy takes a very non-traditional approach to problem-solving pain. Each visit is one-on-one with the goal of getting to the source of the dysfunction. Evaluation of movement at the joint level, the surrounding soft tissue and how your brain has learned to move you within your dysfunction, are all part of the process.
Mindful Movement Physical Therapy
In order to receive physical therapy, you will need a prescription from your physician, chiropractor or dentist. We are a cash-based practice which means that we do not accept insurance. You are still required to have a prescription because the Board of Healing Arts, which governs physical therapy licensure, legally requires this. Upon your request, you will be given a super-bill which can be submitted to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. Please call our office if you have any questions.
Your first visit will be an initial evaluation and will be 45 minutes to an hour in length. At this visit, you will receive a thorough biomechanical evaluation as well as treatment. Follow-up visits are typically a week apart for the first two to three visits and are half-hour visits. We will begin an assessment of muscle balance and movement patterns during these visits and prescribe corrective exercises that are right for your unique dysfunctions. How long you will be in treatment and how frequently you are seen is completely dependent upon your course of progress. Our goal is to give you the tools that you need to help yourself and to guide you to a place where you are independent. Teaching awareness of body postures, movements and proper form with exercise is of utmost importance. When you leave our care we want you to not only feel better but to have the knowledge you need to prevent other injuries and symptoms.
