What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is rehabilitation from an injury to our musculoskeletal system. Injuries can be from a single traumatic event that damages bones, ligaments or muscles. More common are injuries from overuse or repetitive stress. We can sustain traumatic or overuse injuries while playing sports (recreational or competitive), at work, around the house/yard or simply from postural imbalances created by everyday life. Diseases such as osteoporosis, balance deficits and neurologic disorders will also benefit from physical therapy.
What can I expect during my first visit?
The physical therapist will perform an initial evaluation consisting of subjective and objective information through a comprehensive interview, medical history and functional testing protocols. Based on the findings of the initial evaluation, the therapist will develop a plan of care to address the problem and meet the patients goal(s).
What kind of treatments can I expect?
At Pegasus, we take pride in actively engaging patients in their recovery. We help patients meet their goals via modalities (electrical stimulation, ultrasound, heat, ice), manual therapy, stretching and joint mobilization, upper and lower body functional training, balance and proprioceptive training, strengthening & stability exercises, and postural training.
Do I need a prescription from my doctor for physical therapy treatment?
In New York State, a licensed physical therapist may treat a patient for up to 10 visits or 30 days, which ever comes first without a prescription. Some insurance companies will reimburse for Direct Access while others will not. It is recommended you have a prescription. No Fault, Worker's Compensation, and Medicare still require a prescription.
How long is each appointment and how often will I need to attend physical therapy?
The average treatment session is approximately 1 hour. Treatment times vary based on individual needs (diagnosis, severity of injury, etc.). Frequency and duration of physical therapy is based on the doctor’s prescription and therapist evaluation – typically two to three times per week for four to six weeks.
Who will perform the physical therapy treatments on me?
A licensed physical therapist will perform your initial evaluation and will follow up with your care. The therapist-patient relationship is very important to us, so we recommend that the same therapist treats you throughout the duration of your physical therapy here at Pegasus.
What should I wear to my physical therapy appointments?
Patients should wear comfortable clothing (shorts or sweatpants, T-shirt, etc.). Typically, your first day of physical therapy is an evaluation and a treatment session.
Do you have a locker room and/or showers?
Yes, we have a locker room for our clients to use to store their belongings while they are receiving physical therapy treatments. You must bring your own lock if you want to use the lockers. Showers are also in the facility, if needed.
