Frequently asked questions

How do I Pay?


Patients pay in full at the time of service and are provided a receipt with the necessary codes/info to send in self-claims to insurance if they so choose. ($300/hour-session or $150/30 minite session). We accept all major credit cards, cash, check, or PayPal. You can also pay directly on the site at time of booking your appointment or package of appointments.




What Resources are provided?


I don’t usually have patients doing things in the clinic that they could be doing on their own at home, or in their gym. I value your time and anticipate you can do your exercises correctly once demonstrated. Many times the items you will be using at home are rollers or bands to stretch and roll out specific body parts. Each patient has a different treatment, so the tools needed will be provided based on each patient’s needs. Resources are specific to what each person's needs- so it could be a breathing online tool, or a resource that can be bought like a prostretch, a foam roller, a serola belt or an R8 roller. If we are using ANF, the discs for home changes are $6/per disc. Each disc has a specific frequency for healing and will be provided according to your needs. Please see resource page.




What can I expect in my Personal Therapy Journey?


You can expect to find out what’s wrong, how it can be can be addressed, treatment options and how long treatment should take.
You will work one-on-one with Caren to come up with a treatment plan. She will ensure the correct PT treatment techniques are completed in the proper order and timeframe to rectify identified deficits interfering with your goals. Caren will provide self-management tools(or resource on how to get it) and techniques, as well as recommendations for continued community-based exercise.

What tools will I receive during treatment?


Tools to help you meet your goals: Education regarding your body/condition. Homework in the form of exercises for strengthening and positions for active relaxation, stretching, self-care techniques. Many times the items you will be using at home are rollers or bands to stretch and roll out specific body parts. Each patient has a different treatment, so the tools needed will be provided based on each patient’s needs.




What should I wear to my appointment?


Come dressed appropriately to expose the problem area. Typically loose fitting, stretchy clothes work best. Since PT requires movement, we suggest workout clothes so that the physical therapist can work with you comfortably.




What if I'm not seeing the results I expect?


I will modify your plan if we do not see the results we expect. Physical Therapy Home Exercise Program are unique to each patient and given for home. We ask that you take this “homework” seriously, as it is a critical component to your recovery. We will provide all of the necessary resources to do the homework. These tools will be given to you on a trial basis with the expectation it will be returned. If you decide you want to purchase any supplies, you can do that online or from a vendor.




What is the best way to communicate with my therapist between treatments?


My clients are free to communicate with me between appointments by phone, text or wix chat.They don't have to wait to their next treatment toget resolution of their questions or concerns. Clients often communicate past "the course of current treatment" questions, concerns, specific strengthening or safety checks about prior or other conditions as well as jokes or stories. I am committed to my clients and dedicated to restoring and/or maintaining their health.
