Is a prescription required in order to receive physical therapy?

Yes. As of November 2006, NY State licensed physical therapists with 3 or more years of experience have been granted direct access to the general public. This means that patients can be treated by a physical therapist without a physician's prescription. This law allows physical therapists to treat for 30 days or 10 visits, whichever comes first. All visits beyond this, will require a prescription from a licensed physician, osteopath, podiatrist or nurse practitioner. Please check with your insurance company for their specific guidelines regarding this law. Some insurance companies require prescriptions at all times for payment. 
Medicare patients must have a prescription during all phases of treatment.

 

What should I expect on my first visit?

During your first visit, the Physical Therapist will be conducting a thorough evaluation of your condition, including a detailed history of your situation. The initial evaluation will consist of a postural and musculoskeletal assessment, looking at how your joints, muscles, nerves and other soft tissues move. Included in this evaluation your physical therapist may perform an external and internal pelvic floor muscle assessment in order to most effectively identify strength deficits and other dysfunction which may be contributing to, or resulting from, your condition. A personalized treatment plan will be developed based on the evaluation findings.

What should I bring to my first visit?

Please bring:
Medical and surgical history reports, including results of any tests performed such as MRI, X-ray, urodynamics study, defecography, etc.
List of medications(prescriptions &/or over the counter medication)
Referring doctor’s written prescription for physical therapy. If you do not have one, you may print our copy here and bring it to your doctor for his/her signature.
Insurance card, photo ID such as a driver’s license, or passport
 

What should I expect during subsequent treatment sessions?

Most courses of treatment last between 6 - 8 weeks, though this will vary depending on your specific condition. During the course of your treatment, a number of physical therapy interventions may be used, including specific manual (“hands on”) techniques for the pelvic floor, pelvic girdle, and low back. Examples may include myofascial release techniques (MFR), connective tissue mobilization, visceral mobilization techniques, trigger point release, muscle energy techniques and joint mobilization. Strengthening exercises for the pelvic muscles, hips, abdominals and low back may also be part of your plan.

A significant part of your treatment plan will include education addressing the causes of your pain or dysfunction. This will include a home exercise program that will consist of strengthening and stretching exercises, and techniques which can be used to manage your symptoms. In some cases, patients are asked to record the symptoms and activities which take place at home, and may include the completion of a bladder or bowel diary if bladder or bowel complaints are part your symptoms. Your physical therapist may also recommend the use of biofeedback (a device used to monitor pelvic muscle activity) to further assist you with muscle retraining as part of incontinence training or treatment of pelvic pain conditions.
