What should I bring to my first appointment?
1) Loose Fitting Comfortable Clothes that allow for exposure of the area to be treated
2) Any x-rays, MRI, CT reports and Physical Therapy Prescription (if you have one)
Do you take my insurance?
We are an out-of-network provider for insurances that offer out-of-network services. This means you will pay for each visit, and then submit to your insurance for reimbursement. You may contact your insurance to find out if they provide out of network services. Each visit you will be given a superbill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. We will gladly fill out any paperwork that your insurance requires be completed by the therapist.
Do I need a Doctor's prescription for Physical Therapy?
No. According to New York State Law, you can be seen by a licensed physical therapist for 30 days or 10 visits before needing to consult with a doctor and obtain a prescription. Some insurances do require a Doctor's prescription initially, so if you are submitting to your insurance for out-of-network benefits, please contact them to check if this is required.
What should I expect from treatment?
Each patient is thoroughly assessed at the beginning of treatment to look at what structural, strength, and postural deficiencies you may have. Once this is assessed, we will set up a plan for you which may include starting with trainers right away, or gradually transitioning to working with Kinected's skilled staff as your injury progressively improves. During the transition, we will communicate regularly with your Pilates/GROTONIC trainer to make sure we are working towards the same goals and sharing findings from each of our sessions so that the other's treatment can be more informed and effective.
How do you integrate Physical Therapy with Pilates and GYROTONIC services at Kinected?
Yes. We offer free 15-20 minute Physical Therapy consultations to anyone who is interested to know more about the Functional Manual Therapy® (FMT) approach or if you are wondering if Physical Therapy may be beneficial for you. Restrictions apply based on therapist availability and patient need, and are not meant to replace a full FMT assessment.
