I'm not exactly sure what "Physical Therapy" is -- is it a treatment? Actually, Physical Therapy is a field and a profession of practice. It is technically not a "form" of treatment that you receive. How do you determine which therapy is best for me? We develop your treatment plan based on a detailed evaluation that includes a thorough examination of your problem areas, understanding of your goals, and understanding the goals of your referring physician. Ultimately, the treatment that you receive will be uniquely developed for your specific, personal needs and optimal healing goals. How do I find a Physical Therapist? Is there a "best" way? In our experience, the most trusted and quality assured way to find a Physical Therapist is by receiving a personal referral from your qualified Health Care Provider (such as your family doctor). What kind of qualifications does a Physical Therapist need to have? Can just anyone call themselves a "PT"? No. Like medical doctors and other highly educated health care professionals, Physical Therapists undergo significant training based on their specific areas of interest.  What should I look for when choosing a Physical Therapist? You should always choose a Physical therapist who has the interest, training, and experience to provide the appropriate health solutions that you need. Is it better to see the same Physical Therapist every visit, or different ones as in a group practice? Similar to medicine, we believe that care is delivered most efficiently and successfully when the same Physical Therapist is seen each visit. While some well coordinated group practice models are effective, random encounters with different Physical Therapists can sometimes lead to quality concerns and poor results. What steps do I take to become a client at Farmingdale Physical Therapy East? The process of receiving treatment with us is very simple and straightforward: 1. Contact Farmingdale Physical Therapy East at (516) 293-0565. 2. Discuss basic details, such as: hours of operation, available insurance coverage, available appointments for evaluation, and qualifications of the Physical Therapist. You can also ask to speak directly to a Physical Therapist before you make an appointment. 3. During your first visit, we will discuss with your the billing framework of our (potential) treatment. If there are limitations to your insurance coverage, this will also be highlighted at this time. 4. Once all financial-related questions are answered, you will be evaluated by a Physical Therapist. As part of this detained evaluation, you will be asked questions about your medical history, and your current problems. you will also receive a through, hands-on physical examination of your affected problem area(s). 5. Based on the information learned during the above-noted evaluation, we will develop a unique treatment plan. This will include treatment goals that are aligned with your needs, and the advice of your referring physician. 6. We will also explain all of the potential risks and expected benefits of your proposed treatment. What will my first treatment be like? Typically, your first Physical Therapy visit involves modalities such as heat, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound. Together, we will develop a unique exercise program, and you will be supervised to ensure that you are able to perform them safely, and effectively. You will also be given a small number of simple exercises to perform at home. Depending on your care needs, a Physical Therapist may perform manual procedures such as joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, massage, and stretching. Is the treatment painful? At times, yes, some discomfort is part of the healing process. Your Physical Therapist will continuously discuss your tolerance level during treatment. How long is a typical treatment visit? Physical Therapy visits last 1 to 1 1/2 hours. However, this may be shorter or longer depending on your unique needs. How may weekly treatments do I need? Typically, people need 2-3 visits per week. However, your unique needs will determine the frequency and duration. Will my doctor be involved with my care? Yes. Your Physical Therapist will periodically communicate with your physician, and together they will discuss and assess your progress. They will also discuss if there should be any changes to our treatment plan. What can I do to ensure that my experience and results with Farmingdale Physical Therapy East is successful? The best way to ensure lasting success is through an open, trusting, and progressive relationship between the patient, the Physical Therapist, and the patient's physician. You can do your part by always sharing your problems, concerns, and questions with your Physical Therapist.
