Frequently asked questions
Is my condition suitable for online/telehealth Physical Therapy?
Many injuries and healthcare conditions are appropriate for online/telehealth Physical Therapy treatment.
Do I need a referral from a physician?
No! All 50 states have at least some form of direct access to #GetPTFirst, to save you time on waiting for physician appointments and referrals.
What if I don't live in FL or NC?
In many cases, you may qualify for Wellness Services wherever you live in the world. You are also still elligible for screenings.
If I need PT somewhere else, do you provide referrals?
While I don't provide formal referrals, I do have a failrly wide network of professionals across the United States and may be able to help you find someone in your area.
Wait, why are you helping me find a different PT?
While I'd love to help you out with whatever you need, it's more imprtant to me that you find someone who is the best fit for you. No one Physical Therapist is the best for every single person that needs help. I am a firm believer in collaboration when it comes to helping you perform your best.
How will you diagnose my injury or condition?
The same way I have with in-person visits for many years: listen to your story, ask you diagnostic questions, watch how you move, and ask you to try different positions and movements.
How do you perform virtual treatments?
For consultation, wellness, screening, or PT appointments you will get a video meeting link once you book yourself for the day and time and that works best for your schedule. (PT MUST start with a PT Evaluation before booking any treatment visits.)
What are Wellness services?
Wellness services are to promote or maintain physical fitness and mobility, but do not treat or correct a medical condition. For example, you may need to focus on general strength, conditioning, and/or flexibility, or you may have reached a limit with traditional Physical Therapy but would like to continue progessing toward your goals.
What is a Dance Wellness Screening?
Thank for asking! These evidence based screenings includes functional mobility, strength, and flexibility. Participants receive a report with additional education and interpretation of their individual results. Theres
