Physical Therapy/Sports Medicine FAQS


How much does physical therapy cost?
It depends on the injury, diagnosis and provider's orders.  After the initial evaluation you will have a better idea of what the cost of treatment will be.  
How often do I need to schedule therapy appointments?
The Physical Therapist will evaluate your situation and determine the frequency of your appointments.  It is very important that you schedule your appointments as directed by the Physical Therapist as each appointment will build upon the achievements of the previous appointment.  Too much time between appointments may result in a lack of improvement.
