What should I expect from my first appointment?
An initial appointment is 60 minutes and involves a detailed history with a variety of questions about your past health history, a physical examination, treatment as well as discussion of your prognosis and any specific exercises that will support healing.
What should I bring to my first appointment?
Please come prepared to move. Wear pants that can be pulled up over your knees, and a top that can expose your shoulders (like a tank top). Please bring any information from past medical providers, scans, or image findings. If you wear dance shoes, and/or have a question about your shoes, bring them!
How does this differ from chiropractic, massage therapy, or physical therapy?
We believe that no one health profession is better than the other and we often co-manage patients with other clinicians. Traditional Osteopathy and Therapeutic Pilates is unique in its practice and its overall philosophy. It looks at the body as a whole, and determines how an imbalance may be the root cause of your problems. Osteopathic Practitioners use gentle techniques that integrate the whole body. Clients often turn to our services after traditional therapies are not solving their chronic pain or they are looking for a specialized approach to their performance related conditions.
How many sessions will I need?
Although everyone is unique, an average treatment time for a performance related injury is 5 sessions. We highly recommend that those that participate in elite activities continue their care with weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly follow up appointments. This allows us to prevent any new injuries and continue to build on your performance goals.
Do you take Insurance?
Performance Pilates & Rehab is a cash based therapy practice. We take all forms of payments including cash, credit, and checks. However, we do not participate in insurance and believe this is the best option for you!
As a holistic healthcare provider we are able to focus on high quality, personalized therapy. Which allows us more freedom to treat your problems the way they should be treated. Our business is set up to accept HSA/FSA cards. However, some insurance companies require a prescription from a medical doctor in order to use these cards for our services.
Are you a physician or D.O.?
No, we are not medical providers or physicians. We have earned our degree outside of the USA. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners cannot prescribe medications, diagnose conditions for insurance purposes, or perform surgeries. We legally practice under the governing laws of senate bill 577.
