Yes, you have the right to choose any therapy clinic, even if you choose not to go to the therapist at your physician’s office. Doctors can not force you to attend therapy at their own physical therapy clinic or any clinic for that matter. Just ask your doctor for a referral to the clinic of your choosing.
Many physicians own their own therapy department. While there are some good therapists working for physicians, many studies have demonstrated disadvantages to the patient. One study found physician-owned clinics treat patients for 50 percent more visits than do independent clinics (1) Another study demonstrated that self-referral increases the cost of medical care covered by workers’ compensation for each of the three types of service studied physical therapy, psychiatric evaluation, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (2) Still one more study indicated that licensed and non-licensed therapy providers spent less time with each patient in physician owned clinics and physical therapy assistants were substituted for physical therapists. Physicians will claim they work better with therapist on site and a better continuum of care. Private practice therapists are very qualified and always follow protocols set by orthopedic physicians.
The following list contains some of the most common reasons to see a physical therapist and those conditions treated at AthletePlus.
Physical therapists are experts in how the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems function.
Physical therapist services are cost-effective. Early physical therapy intervention prevents more costly treatment later, can result in a faster recovery, and reduces costs associated with lost time from work. Patients pay less when they have direct access to physical therapy services without a doctor referral. However, there can be a temptation under managed care to terminate services prematurely. A study conducted to determine whether direct access to physical therapy services was cost-effective found that patients who went directly to a physical therapist had fewer episodes of care, and services were ultimately less costly.
Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives.
PTs examine each individual and develop a plan using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Physical therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, and nursing homes. State licensure is required in each state in which a physical therapist practices.
All PTs must receive a graduate degree from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice. The majority of programs offer the doctor of physical therapy (DPT) degree.
That will depend on your diagnosis, evaluation, plan of care, and response to treatment in whether your goals are getting you back to work, to sports, or just an active lifestyle. Your doctor or insurance also may dictate the number of visits. Our goal is to achieve this goals and give you the tools to prevent it from returning.
AthletePlus will complete a care plan that requires attendance for an optimal recovery. One reason many patients do not improve is because of inconsistent attendance patterns or many cancels. There are many reasons to keep all of your visits.
If possible, please allow 24 notice if you can not make your appointment. There are usually other patients that could have used that appointment time. If you need to cancel or re-schedule, call 751-8437 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We do have a cancellation policy and may require upfront payment or reserve the right to discharge you if three or more cancels occur.
