Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a medical practice involving therapeutic activities to help patients regain mobility and normal bodily functions.

Physical therapists receive a diagnosis from a physician, identify the appropriate treatment plan, and conduct customized therapy sessions to restore or better physical function.

What is the difference between occupational therapy and physical therapy?

Physical therapy and occupational therapy retrain the body and mind and play a vital role in improving or maintaining physical functions. Occupational therapy focuses on enhancing fine-motor skills or hand-eye coordination to perform daily activities, such as getting dressed or writing. Physiotherapy concentrates on improving pain, physical deterioration, and range of motion by stimulating blood circulation with targeted exercise.

What do physical therapists do?

Physical therapists help relieve pain and improve physical strength and movement to individuals of all ages with injuries or debilitating diseases, whether acute or chronic. They consult with doctors to learn about the patients' needs, evaluate movement dysfunctions, teach patients how to use equipment, and provide treatments, such as massage. Other responsibilities include monitoring progress and altering treatment as necessary.

What does a physical therapist assistant do?

Physical therapist assistants work under the supervision of physical therapists. Their responsibilities include reporting patient progress and working with individuals of all ages on therapeutic exercises, gait and balance training, and how to use recovery equipment.

Are physical therapists doctors?

Physical therapists are considered doctors of physical therapy and are qualified to use the title "Dr." in front of their name. The biggest difference between them and medical doctors is that PTs use exercises and massage to restore their patients' health, whereas doctors offer treatment using medications and surgeries.

Can physical therapists diagnose?

Physical therapists don't perform medical diagnoses. In most cases, doctors perform the medical diagnoses and refer the patient to a physical therapist for rehabilitative treatment. The physical therapist conducts a physical evaluation to pinpoint the nature and extent of the physical damage or impairment and prepares a treatment plan.

How long is physical therapy?

Physical therapy usually lasts for 30 to 60 minutes per session. The length and frequency of the sessions depend on the type of therapy and the stage of recovery the patient is in. For injuries, such as muscle sprains, therapy may last for a few weeks, while in more severe cases, such as spinal injury, it may continue for years.

How much does physical therapy cost?

The overall cost of physical therapy depends on the number of sessions prescribed and the duration and type of treatment performed. On average, physical therapy costs between $75 and $150 per session, with patients requiring two to three sessions per week for 12 weeks. Additionally, equipment that is required for rehabilitation, such as hot and cold packs, crutches, exercise balls, and balance boards, may be included as part of the cost of physical therapy.

Is physical therapy covered by insurance?

Many medical insurance service providers cover physical therapy. In some cases, the insurance may offer a co-pay option for medically necessary PT. With medical insurance, patients can pay as much as $20 to $55 per session. Some medical insurance plans, however, limit the number of physical therapy sessions they cover.

Does Medicare cover physical therapy?

Medicare provides coverage for outpatient physical therapy. The plan covers 80% of treatment costs, leaving patients to pay the remaining 20%. Most Medicare plans have an upper limit of $2,110, and in cases where costs exceed this amount, your doctor is required to indicate that the therapy is medically necessary.

What to wear to physical therapy?

Physical therapy involves a lot of movement and exercise, so it's advisable to wear loose, lightweight clothing that doesn't restrict movement. This includes athletic wear, such as t-shirts, gym shorts, yoga or sweat pants, or tank tops. Supportive shoes, such as sneakers, are necessary, so no sandals, heels, or boots.
