3. What should I expect on my first visit?

Upon arrival at our office, you will meet your personal licensed physical therapist. You will be asked to fill out some basic paperwork (don't forget to bring in your prescription for physical therapy, your insurance card, a picture ID, and any written information - operative reports, X-ray and/or MRI results - you have about your injury). The physical therapist will then ask you a series of questions about your past and present medical conditions before performing a comprehensive evaluation of your muscles, joints, nerves, tendons, and ligaments, including range of motion, strength and functional testing. Based on your physician's diagnosis, our prognosis, and your personal goals, an individual treatment plan will be devised. The majority of patients will receive treatment and home exercises on your first visit. Future appointments will also be scheduled.

5. How often will I need to attend physical therapy?

Most patients are treated two to three times per week. The total duration of physical therapy will depend on the severity of your injury. The more committed you are to your recovery (meaning, you regularly attend your PT sessions), the more likely you are to recover faster. We try to set up convenient appointment times for you to help make scheduling easier, and we offer early morning, evening, and Saturday appointments in order to enable you to fit PT into your busy schedule.

6. How long will each appointment take?

The duration of your visit will vary based on your diagnosis and injury. Most visits last approximately one hour. Your first visit may be a little longer to allow time for our therapists to perform their initial evaluation and begin some form of treatment.

7. Is there anything I can do to help speed the recovery process along?

Absolutely. We will customize a home treatment program "comprised of advice on how to reduce your pain, exercises and stretches for you so that you can continue your rehabilitation process in between physical therapy sessions. It is essential that you follow the instructions and perform the home exercises regularly to control your symptoms and speed up recovery.

9. How much will each visit cost me?

At Chesapeake Physical & Aquatic Therapy , we take care of health insurance verification and worker's compensation authorization at no additional cost to the patient. Your out-of-pocket expense will vary depending on your insurance policy. Prescribed physical therapy is typically covered at least partially by most insurance companies. Depending on your insurance policy, you may or may not have a co-payment for each visit. Most of our patients have between a $0 -$20 co pay per office visit. If you have a co-payment, the fee is to be paid at the time of your visit.  If you have specific questions about your insurance, please contact our clinics for assistance.
