Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I go about scheduling an appointment for physical therapy?
You must first obtain a prescription for physical therapy from your physician or surgeon. Once you have a prescription, please call us at (781) 297-0979 and press 1 to schedule an initial evaluation by one of our physical therapists.
2. What should I bring to my initial appointment?
Please bring your license or photo ID, your insurance card(s), and your prescription for physical therapy from your physician. In addition, if your physician and/or surgeon provided you with any specific post-operative orders (i.e. post-operative protocol), please bring that information as well. Also, if you take any prescription medications, please bring a list of your medications and current dosages.
3. How should I dress for my initial evaluation?
Please be sure to dress appropriately or bring appropriate attire for your evaluation. If your injury involves a lower extremity, shorts are typically ideal. If your injury involves your back, neck, or upper extremity, please wear clothing that allows easy exposure of the area to be examined and/or treated during your session (i.e. tank top). Locker rooms are available if you need to change into more appropriate attire before or after your PT session.
4. How many PT sessions should I expect to need?
The number of PT sessions in a given episode of care depends on many factors, including the nature of your injury and/or surgery (and related healing times, etc), the medical necessity of your treatment, any specific orders from your referring physician, and the time it takes you to meet the functional goals outlined in your Plan of Care. In addition, different insurance providers offer different benefits regarding physical therapy services, which may also have an influence in the duration of your episode of care. Typically, most of patients are seen 1-3 times/wk during the episode of care (2 visits/week on average), depending on your therapeutic needs. In general, we strive to get our patients back to their optimal level of function as quickly and as safely as possible given the specific circumstances.
5. Who will provide my treatment during my physical therapy sessions?
Our PT staff typically works in teams of two – your Physical Therapist and his/her Physical Therapist Assistant – both licensed and experienced rehabilitation professionals. Your Physical Therapist will perform your initial evaluation and any additional re-evaluations and/or progress notes for your physician as necessary. Both your Physical Therapist and his/her Assistant will work with you during your PT sessions depending on the given appointment.
6. What can I expect at the conclusion of my episode of care?
To hopefully feel much better, stronger, more flexible, and more functional than when you arrived! But in addition to these obvious expectations, we expect that you will have met your treatment goals, improved your level of function, achieved independence with your exercise program, and feel that you’ve received excellent care. Many of our patients choose to continue their rehab program with Elite by joining the Fitness Center as a member, working with a Personal Trainer or on their own.
