In order to receive physical therapy, you need to obtain a prescription from a healthcare provider. This provider may also suggest a specific rehabilitation company or provide you with a list of physical therapists in your area. In some cases, your insurance company will guide you to the “In Network” providers that are included in your insurance plan. But, the final decision as to where you receive rehabilitation care is up to you.
Be sure to let your healthcare provider or insurance company know that Tri-State Rehabilitation and Sports Center is your first choice when it comes to rehabilitation. We participate in many insurance plans. However, if Tri-State Rehabilitation and Sports Center is not in your network, look into whether your plan has out-of-network benefits that will allow you to receive our first rate services with some level of benefit. We appreciate your interest in Tri-State Rehabilitation and Sports Center and we would love to work with you on your return to an active lifestyle.
Physical therapists are experts in restoring movement and function. After examining the patient, therapists create comprehensive programs focused on total body care, injury prevention, as well as safe and timely returns to work, life or sports. Depending on the needs of a particular patient, physical therapist may mobilize a joint, provide soft tissue work to a muscle, or perform a corrective exercise to restore normal movement patterns and function.
