What we can help you achieve

Initial Evaluation | Treatment Sessions | Wellness | Exploratory Visits

Initial Evaluation

Your initial appointment will focus on obtaining background, skilled hands-on assessment, determining your personal goals, and making a plan of care to help you achieve those goals. This type of appointment requires a script for physical therapy from a physician, dentist, chiropractor, or nurse practitioner prior to your appointment.

Treatment Sessions

Treatment sessions will focus on hands-on treatment to eliminate dysfunction in your body and promote wellness and healing. Additionally, we will teach you specific exercises to restore strength and balance throughout your body. Through our personalized approach, you will have access to your therapist through an online messaging program so that you can ask questions as you go.

Wellness

After completion of your program, we offer many options for ongoing wellness planning. This includes nutritional education, exercise tracking, and intermittent assessment.

Exploratory Visit

If you have specific questions regarding our treatment approach or your specific health concerns, please contact us for an exploratory visit. We will answer your questions and work with you to develop a plan to achieve your goals. These sessions may be done in person or via computer, depending on scheduling and do not require a physician script. These appointments do not include any hands-on treatment or assessment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect at my First visit?

For your first visit, downloading and filling out the relevant forms will speed up your intake. Your therapist will perform a detailed assessment which may include: mobility testing, strength testing, neurological tests, spinal motion testing, palpation for neuromuscular tender points and similar tests. Please wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing.

  • Following the exam, you will receive your first treatment. This will consist of manual therapy techniques to correct the restrictions we’ve identified in your body, ergonomic instructions, and instructions for a home exercise program.
  • This assessment typically takes 60-75 minutes.

What is “Counterstrain” and why haven’t I heard about it before?

Additionally, Strain and Counterstrain is a relatively new technique in the field of manual medicine. The first research article to study Counterstrain’s effect on the stretch Reflex was not published until 2006. [See: Stretch Reflex and Hoffman Reflex Response To Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment in subjects with Achilles Tendonitis, JAOA, Vol. 106, Sept. 2006.]

Once a tissue has been released, is the effect permanent?

Yes, in general, this is the case, however, respect must be given to the big picture. Your body is all connected and therefore we must figure out the “cause” of your initial dysfunction. Further education on this will be provided during your treatment sessions regarding your specific situation.

How many treatments are generally needed to experience relief?

Most patients will experience significant relief within 2-4 treatment sessions with a typical plan of care lasting 8-10 sessions.

Are “traditional” physical therapy techniques used at Libertas Physical Therapy?

Yes! In addition to hands-on treatment, patients also will be given exercise recommendations and training on proper body mechanics and ergonomics.

Do you take my insurance?

Libertas Physical Therapy is not contracted with any insurance companies because we do not treat insurance companies – we treat our patients and recommend what is best for our patients. Each session is “cash-based” and payment is due at the time of services. We will provide a superbill with all of the information to submit a claim to your insurance if you so choose to file on your own.
