Virginia’s Direct Access law gives patients a new choice. Direct Access (also called Self-Referral) means you’re now free to go directly to a physical therapist without being referred by doctor. The biggest advantage to you as a patient is that direct access (self-referral) puts you in charge of your care. You can choose whichever provider you like best—and what’s more, you can go as soon as you feel the need, so you can enjoy relief more quickly.  At Rehab Associates we try to get each patient in the door within 48 hours of the time you call to make an appointment.

For Additional Questions Please Contact Us

During your first visit you can expect the following:

  • Arrive at your appointment with your paperwork completed (you can download it from our website – see the paperwork or forms link).
  • You will provide us with your prescription for physical therapy.
  • We will copy your insurance card.
  • You will be seen for the initial evaluation by the therapist.
  • The therapist will discuss the following:
    1. Your medical history.
    2. Your current problems/complaints.
    3. Pain intensity, what aggravates and eases the problem.
    4. How this is impacting your daily activities or your functional limitations.
    5. Your goals with physical therapy.
    6. Medications, tests, and procedures related to your health.
  • The therapist will then perform the objective evaluation which may include some of the following:
    1. Palpation – touching around the area of the pain/problem. This is done to check for the presence of tenderness, swelling, soft tissue integrity, tissue temperature, inflammation, etc.
    2. Range of Motion (ROM) – the therapist will move the joint(s) to check for the quality of movement and any restrictions.
    3. Muscle Testing – the therapist may check for strength and the quality of the muscle contraction. Pain and weakness may be noted. Often the muscle strength is graded. This is also part of a neurological screening.
    4. Neurological Screening – the therapist may check to see how the nerves are communicating with the muscles, sensing touch, pain, vibration, or temperature. Reflexes may be assessed as well.
    5. Special Tests – the therapist may perform special tests to confirm/rule out the presence of additional problems.
    6. Posture Assessment – the positions of joints relative to ideal and each other may be assessed.

The therapist will then formulate a list of problems you are having, and how to treat those problems. A plan is subsequently developed with the patient’s input. This includes how many times you should see the therapist per week, how many weeks you will need therapy, home programs, patient education, short-term/long-term goals, and what is expected after discharge from therapy. This plan is created with input from you, your therapist, and your doctor.

Make sure you bring your physical therapy referral (provided to you by your doctor) and your payment information. If your insurance is covering the cost of physical therapy, bring your insurance card. If you are covered by Workers’ Compensation, bring your claim number and your case manager’s contact information. If you are covered by auto insurance or an attorney lien, make sure you bring this information.

You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear shorts. For a shoulder problem, a tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose fitting shirt and pants, again so we can perform a thorough examination.

Treatment sessions typically last 30 to 60 minutes per visit.

This is highly variable. You may need one visit or you may need months of care. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated on a monthly basis and when you see your doctor, we will provide you with a progress report with our recommendations.

More than half of all Americans are suffering from pain. Whether it is a recent episode or chronic, an ABC News/Stanford study revealed that pain in America is a serious problem. However, many do not even know that physical therapists are well equipped to not only treat pain but also its source.

Physical therapists are experts at treating movement and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. Pain often accompanies a movement disorder, and physical therapists can help correct the disorder and relieve the pain.

You have probably heard of the profession of physical therapy. Maybe you have had a conversation with a friend about how physical therapy helped get rid of his or her back pain, or you might know someone who needed physical therapy after an injury. You might even have been treated by a physical therapist yourself. But have you ever wondered about physical therapists–who they are and what they do? Many people are familiar with physical therapists’ work helping patients with orthopedic problems, such as low back pain or knee surgeries, to reduce pain and regain function. Others may be aware of the treatment that physical therapists provide to assist patients recovering from a stroke (e.g., assisting them with recovering use of their limbs and walking again).

The ability to maintain an upright posture and to move your arms and legs to perform all sorts of tasks and activities is an important component of your health. Most of us can learn to live with the various medical conditions that we may develop, but only if we are able to continue at our jobs, take care of our families, and enjoy important occasions with family and friends. All of these activities require the ability to move without difficulty or pain.

Because physical therapists are experts in movement and function, they do not confine their talents to treating people who are ill. A large part of a physical therapist’s program is directed at preventing injury, loss of movement, and even surgery. Physical therapists work as consultants in industrial settings to improve the design of the workplace and reduce the risk of workers overusing certain muscles or developing low back pain. They also provide services to athletes at all levels to screen for potential problems and institute preventive exercise programs. With the boom in the golf and fitness industries, a number of physical therapists are engaged in consulting with recreational golfers and fitness clubs to develop workouts that are safe and effective, especially for people who already know that they have a problem with their joints or their backs.

The cornerstones of physical therapy treatment are therapeutic exercise and functional training. In addition to “hands-on” care, physical therapists also educate patients to take care of themselves and to perform certain exercises on their own. Depending on the particular needs of a patient, physical therapists may also “mobilize” a joint (that is, perform certain types of movements at the end of your range of motion) or massage a muscle to promote proper movement and function. Physical therapists also use methods such as ultrasound (which uses high frequency waves to produce heat), hot packs, and ice. Although other kinds of practitioners will offer some of these treatments as “physical therapy,” it’s important for you to know that physical therapy can only be provided by qualified physical therapists or by physical therapist assistants, who must complete a 2-year education program and who work only under the direction and supervision of physical therapists.

Most forms of physical therapy treatment are covered by your insurance, but the coverage will vary with each plan. Most states do not legally require patients to see their physicians before seeing a physical therapist. Most of the time all you have to do is ask your doctor if physical therapy is right for you.

Reference: APTA

You and others may be referred to physical therapy because of a movement dysfunction associated with pain. Your difficulty with moving part(s) of your body (like bending at the low back or difficulty sleeping on your shoulder, etc.) very likely results in limitations with your daily activities (e.g., difficulty getting out of a chair, an inability to play sports, or trouble with walking, etc.). Physical therapists treat these movement dysfunctions and their associated pains and restore your body’s ability to move in a normal manner.

Who is better to see, a PT that works for a physician or a PT that owns a private practice? We leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions but here are some facts. The studies indicate there were more treatments (visits per patient were 39% to 45% higher in physician owned clinics) and the cost was greater for those patients that attended a physician owned physical therapy practice (both gross and net revenue per patient were 30% to 40% higher)1.

Another study indicated that licensed and non-licensed therapy providers spent less time with each patient in physician owned clinics and physical therapy assistants were substituted for physical therapists.2

Another older study concluded that “Therapists who had treated patients through direct access were significantly more likely to believe that direct access had benefited them professionally and benefited their patients than were therapists who had not practiced through direct access.”3

We believe that we can provide you with the highest quality of care available and do it in a cost-effective manner.4 You will work closely with your physical therapist and in most instances, your case will be managed by the same physical therapist from the beginning to the end of your experience with us.

In most cases, health insurance will cover your treatment. Click on our insurance link above for a summary of insurances we accept and make sure you talk to our receptionist so we can help you clarify your insurance coverage.

You will be evaluated by one of our licensed and highly trained physical therapists and he/she will also treat you during subsequent visits. Unlike some clinics, where you see someone different each visit, we feel it is very important to develop a one-on-one relationship with you to maintain continuity of care. Since only one physical therapist knows your problems best, he/she is the one that will be working closely with you to speed your recovery.

Orthopedic Physical Therapy – Probably the most common physical therapy specialist is the orthopedic specialist. These specialists care for post-surgical patients, arthritis, tendinitis/tendinosus, fracture rehabilitation, muscle sprains and strains, neck and back pain, hip and knee problems, shoulder, elbow, and wrist conditions. Some are board certified as Orthopedic Certified Specialists (OCS).

Manual Therapy – Manual therapy is a broad term that describes a variety of hands-on treatment techniques that are applied to movement dysfunctions. Grade five mobilizations, Mulligan mobilizations with movement, Maitland and Kaltenborn techniques, functional technique, neural mobilization, joint mobilization, craniosacral therapy, strain/counter strain, myofascial release, etc. These are some of the more popular manual therapy techniques. Many manual therapists will take continuing education courses, obtain certifications in manual therapy, and will sit for board certification from the American Physical Therapy Association and other organizations. Most physical therapists incorporate manual therapy techniques as a part of a complete treatment plan.

Geriatric Physical Therapy – Some therapists specialize in the rehabilitation of seniors. As the body ages, a variety of challenges arise. We stiffen, we lose strength, our balance skills decline, our bones become brittle (osteoporosis), our endurance decreases, and we take longer to recover from injuries. Balance and fall prevention are of paramount importance to the therapist who is working with seniors and some clinics are solely dedicated to caring for those with balance problems. Most physical therapists work with seniors/geriatric patients. Some have obtained additional education, have passed a board examination, and have earned the Geriatric Certified Specialist (GCS) title.

Sports Rehabilitation – Experts in assisting with recovery after injury and surgery. Many sports specialists help with retraining the athlete utilizing running, throwing, jumping, and sport-specific programs to name a few. A therapist with the Sports Certified Specialist (SCS) title has passed a board certified test.

Fitness and Wellness – Physical therapists are well trained to help with your fitness needs and wellness programs. If you need an exercise program, have trouble with your weight, are concerned about osteoporosis, have an issue with diabetes, or you would like to learn how to prevent falls, physical therapists can help. The previous examples are just a few of the many programs physical therapists offer.

Hand Therapy – Most physical therapists are well trained to treat hand and wrist conditions. Some therapists have taken additional courses and training and have passed a hand therapy certification examination. These therapists are called Certified Hand Therapists (CHTs).

Women’s Health – Some therapists specialize in women’s issues such as pregnancy problems, pelvic pain, and incontinence. Special treatment is available for women who have these problems. Many that suffer from incontinence do so needlessly. A physical therapist may be able to help.

Industrial Rehabilitation – Specialists in industrial rehabilitation help with those that have suffered on-the-job injuries. Moreover, they will evaluate work tasks, fabricate assistive devices, evaluate your ergonomic situation, and help redesign work flow/tasks to decrease the incidence of injury. Often, industrial rehabilitation specialists will evaluate your ability to perform certain job tasks with a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE).

Pediatric Physical Therapy – Pediatric therapists specialize in the rehabilitation of children. They may assist with kids who suffer from cerebral palsy, developmental disorders, neurological disorders, and/or orthopedic problems. A Pediatric Certified Specialist (PCS) is a board certification that some may obtain from the American Physical Therapy Association.

Aquatic Physical Therapy – Aquatic therapy takes advantage of the physical properties of water to assist with the rehabilitative process. Buoyancy, turbulence, hydrostatic pressure, and thermal properties of water can assist with the rehabilitation of a patient. Those suffering from chronic pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lumbar fusion surgery, or with a limited weight-bearing status are just a few of the many different patient populations that can benefit from aquatic therapy.

Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation – A small percentage of physical therapists practice in this discipline. Those that pass the board certification have the title of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Certified Specialist (CCS) work with patients who have had heart attacks, bypass surgeries, angioplasty, breathing problems, emphysema, and other heart/lung related conditions. Physical therapists are well equipped to work with these types of patients because many of them have orthopedic ailments that limit their ability to function. In other words, a physical therapist can address the heart and lung problems as well as the muscle problems that are concurrently present.

Neurological, Spinal Cord Injury, and Traumatic Brain Injury Rehab – A large portion of physical therapists work with patients who suffer from these conditions. Functional retraining including, walking, wheelchair use, getting in and out of bed or chairs (transfer training), moving in bed (bed mobility), and retraining patients to use their shoulders, arms, and hands are just some of the services these therapists provide to those with neurological involvement. A certified specialist holds a Neurologic Certified Specialist title (NCS).

Balance, Dizziness, and Vertigo Rehabilitation – Many suffer from dizziness or BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). Some clinics specialize in the rehabilitation of patients with vertigo. Patient education, strengthening, safety awareness, posture and balance exercise, walking exercise, and special techniques that affect sensory and balance centers of the brain and limbs are all important components of a rehabilitation program.

Amputee Rehabilitation – many physical therapists specialize in the rehabilitation of amputees. Caring for the injured limb, functional and walking training, training in the use of assistive devices (crutches, canes, prosthetic limbs, etc.) are all provided by a therapist who specializes in care for amputees.

Wound Care – Some therapists specialize in the treatment and care of wounds. This is accomplished by the removal of unviable tissue (debridement), the application of special dressings and prescription drugs/ointments, and the use of ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and aquatic modalities to promote healing. Exercise and patient education are also routine components of a wound care program.

ECS (Clinical Electrophysiologic Certified Specialist) – A physical therapist who is board certified to perform electroneurophysiology examinations such as nerve conduction studies and electromyography.

Lymphedema Rehabilitation – We take it for granted but a special component of the circulatory system, the lymph system, helps filter and drain fluid from our arms and legs. When this drainage system is damaged, painful swelling can result. Some therapists specialize in the treatment of lymphedema as it is called. Special positioning, massage and bandaging techniques are utilized by the lymphedema specialist.

Osteoporosis Rehabilitation and Prevention – Some practitioners specialize in the evaluation and treatment of osteoporosis patients. Working in concert with your medical doctor, the therapist will often design a specialized weight-bearing and resistance training program for those with this silent disease.

For many patients, one of the primary objectives is pain relief. This is frequently accomplished with hands-on techniques, modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and/or heat or cold therapy. Movement often provides pain relief as well. Your physical therapist will provide you with the appropriate exercises not only for pain relief but to recover range of motion, strength, and endurance.

In some cases, physical therapy techniques can be painful. For example, recovering knee range of motion after total knee replacement or shoulder range of motion after shoulder surgery may be painful. Your physical therapist will utilize a variety of techniques to help maximize your treatment goals. It is important that you communicate the intensity, frequency, and duration of pain to your therapist. Without this information, it is difficult for the therapist to adjust your treatment plan.

There are dozens of different types of treatment interventions. Here is a list of treatment interventions:

Active Range of Motion (AROM) – the patient lifts or moves a body part through range of motion against gravity. AROM is usually one of the first modalities prescribed for arthritis.

Active Assistive Range of Motion (AAROM) – therapist-assisted active range of motion. This is usually prescribed for gentle stretching or strengthening for a very weak body part.

Stationary Bicycle – with or without resistance. This is usually prescribed for improving the strength and/or range of motion of the back or lower extremities as well as cardiovascular endurance.

Gait or Walking Training – the analysis of walking problems by visually examining the interaction of the low back and the joints of the thighs, legs, and feet during the various stages of walking, including initial contact, loading response, mid stance, terminal stance, pre swing, mid swing, and terminal swing. Many back, thigh, leg, ankle, and foot problems may be caused by or manifest themselves in subtle gait abnormalities.

Isometrics – muscle contraction without joint movement. This is usually prescribed for strengthening without stressing or damaging the joint (e.g., arthritis, or exercises to be performed in a cast, or right after surgery if recommended by the therapist/doctor).

Isotonics– muscle(s) contracting through the ROM with resistance. This is usually prescribed for strengthening.

Soft Tissue Mobilization – therapeutic massage of body tissue performed with the hands. Soft tissue mobilization may be used for muscle relaxation, to decrease swelling, to decrease scar tissue adhesions, and for pain relief.

Mobilization – hands-on therapeutic procedures intended to increase soft tissue or joint mobility. Mobilization is usually prescribed to increase mobility, delaying progressive stiffness, and to relieve pain. There are many types of mobilization techniques including Maitland, Kaltenborn, Isometric Mobilizations, etc.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) – a system of manually resisted exercises performed in diagonal patterns that mimic functional movements. PNF was initially used in developmentally and neurologically impaired patients but now is used in almost every aspect of neuromuscular retraining from athletes in sports facilities to the very weak in hospitals and nursing homes.

Posture Training – instruction in the correct biomechanical alignment of the body to reduce undue strain on muscles, joints, ligaments, discs, and other soft tissues. There is an ideal posture, but most people do not have ideal posture. Therapists educate patients about the importance of improving posture with daily activities. Stretching and strengthening exercises may be prescribed to facilitate postural improvement and to prevent further disability and future recurrences of problems.

Progressive Resistive Exercises (PRE) – exercises that gradually increase in resistance (weights) and in repetitions. PRE is usually prescribed for reeducation of muscles and strengthening. Weights, rubber bands, and body weight can be used as resistance.

Passive Range of Motion (PROM) – the patient or therapist moves the body part through a range of motion without the use of the muscles that “actively” move the joint(s).

Stretching/Flexibility Exercise – exercise designed to lengthen muscle(s) or soft tissue. Stretching exercises are usually prescribed to improve the flexibility of muscles that have tightened due to disuse or in compensation to pain, spasm or immobilization.

Cryotherapy or Cold Therapy – used to cause vasoconstriction (the blood vessels constrict or decrease their diameter) to reduce the amount of fluid that leaks out of the capillaries into the tissue spaces (swelling) in response to injury of tissue. Ice or cold is used most frequently in acute injuries, but also an effective pain reliever for even the most chronic pain.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) – the application of electrical stimulation to aid in improving strength (e.g., the quadriceps muscle after knee surgery or injury). NMES is also used to decrease pain and swelling and to relieve muscle spasm.

Neck Traction – a gentle longitudinal/axial pull on the neck, either manual or mechanical, intermittent or continuous for relief of neck pain, to decrease muscle spasm and facilitate unloading of the spine.

Heat – heat is recommended to decrease chronic pain, relax muscles, and for pain relief. It should not be used with an acute or “new” injury.

Iontophoresis – medications are propelled through the skin by an electrical charge. This modality works on the physical concept that like charges repel each other, therefore, a positively charged medication will be repelled through the skin to the underlying tissues by the positively charged pad of an iontophoresis machine. Iontophoresis is usually prescribed for injuries such as shoulder or elbow bursitis.

Pelvic Traction – the longitudinal/axial pull on the lumbar spine, either manual or mechanical, intermittent or continuous. Pelvic traction may be helpful for the relief of low back pain and muscle spasm.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) – a relatively low voltage applied over painful areas through small self-adhesive electrodes. The electrical stimulation “disguises” or “overrides” the sensation of pain. It is a small, portable unit, used in intervals, to control pain and reduce dependence on drugs. It is usually prescribed for relief of pain.

Ultrasound – ultrasound uses a high frequency sound wave emitted from the sound head when electricity is passed through a quartz crystal. The sound waves cause the vibration of water molecules deep within tissue causing a heating effect. When the sound waves are pulsed, they cause a vibration of the tissue rather than heating. The stream of sound waves helps with nutrition exchange at the cellular level and healing. Studies have shown that ultrasound is helpful for ligament healing and clinically, for carpal tunnel syndrome, and muscle spasm.

Whirlpool – immersion of a body part into water with small “agitators” to provide a gentle massaging motion. A warm whirlpool provides relief from pain and muscle spasm and is often preparatory to stretching or exercise. Cold whirlpool is used to decrease inflammation and swelling.

Massage may be part of your treatment. Rehabilitation specialists are trained in a variety of techniques that may help with your recovery. Deep tissue techniques may be part of the rehabilitative process. Massage is used for three reasons typically – to facilitate venous return from a swollen area, to relax a tight muscle, or to relieve pain. Contrary to common thought, massage does not increase circulation.

Flare ups are not uncommon. If you have a flare up (exacerbation), give us a call. We may suggest you come back to see us, return to your doctor, or simply modify your daily activities or exercise routine.

In most cases, you have the right to choose any physical therapy clinic. Our practice is a provider for many different insurance plans.

The best thing to do is give us a call and we will attempt to answer all of your questions.

All fifty states have some form of direct access. In most cases, if you are not making significant improvement within 30 days, the therapist will refer you to/back to your physician.

Seeing a physical therapist first is safe and could save you hundreds of dollars or even thousands of dollars. Click here for details

In most states, physical therapists cannot make a medical diagnosis. This is something that your medical doctor will provide for you.

Physical therapists are important members of your medical team. At this point in time, physicians are typically the health care providers that will provide you with a medical diagnosis.

Billing for physical therapy services is similar to what happens at your doctor’s office. When you are seen for treatment, the following occurs:

  1. The physical therapist bills your insurance company, Workers’ Comp, or charges you based on Common Procedure Terminology (CPT) codes.
  2. Those codes are transferred to a billing form that is either mailed or electronically communicated to the payer.
  3. The payer processes this information and makes payments according to an agreed upon fee schedule.
  4. An Explanation of Benefits (EOB) is generated and sent to the patient and the physical therapy clinic with a check for payment and a balance due by the patient.
  5. The patient is expected to make the payment on the balance if any.

It is important to understand that there are many small steps (beyond the outline provided above) within the process. Exceptions are common to the above example as well. At any time along the way, information may be missing, mis-communicated, or misunderstood. This can delay the payment process. While it is common for the payment process to be completed in 60 days or less, it is not uncommon for the physical therapy clinic to receive payment as long as six months after the treatment date.

Some patients will need to continue with home exercises. Some may choose to continue with a gym exercise program. Others will complete their rehabilitation and return to normal daily activities. It is important that you communicate your goals to your therapist, so he/she can develop a custom program for you.

Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) are licensed by their respective states.

These are some things you may consider when seeking a physical therapy clinic:

  • The therapist should be licensed in the state.
  • The first visit should include a thorough medical history and physical examination before any treatment is rendered.
  • The patient goals should be discussed in detail during the first visit.
  • Care should include a variety of techniques which might include hands-on techniques, soft tissue work, therapeutic exercises and in some cases heat, cold, electrical stimulation or ultrasound.
  • Do they have a service that can address your problem?
  • Do they take your insurance or are they willing to work with you if they are not a preferred provider?
  • They should be conveniently located. Since sitting and driving often aggravate orthopedic problems, there should be a very good reason for you to drive a long distance for rehabilitation.
  • What are the hours of operation?
  • Can they provide satisfaction survey results?
  • The therapist should provide the treatment.
  • Can you briefly interview the therapist before the first visit?
  • Ask your family and friends who they would recommend.

Reviews

"My husband has seen Matt Nolen twice a week for five months and been extremely pleased with his treatment and progress. He was a little reluctant at first to go but once he saw the improvements he was making he realizes there is hope for his pain. When he started he was sleeping in the recliner because he couldn't get out of the bed. He now can sleep in the bed and is physically much better rested. Matt encourages him to work hard and he brings his exercises home to work on. His mental outlook has greatly improved as well as his core strength and I am truly grateful for Rehab Associates"

Cynthia from Forest Office

"This is a very nice place to visit for therapy. The office is always clean and tidy. And unlike a lot of places they are always on time or if not just a few short minutes delay. They have a mission to help each patient that walks through their door. And I must say they are very pleasant and understanding while working toward that goal. Thanks again to Ainsley and Jordan for helping me to soon reach my goals after knee replacement surgery. "

"I would highly recommend the staff at this Rehab Associates location in Moneta to anyone who needs and who would benefit from physical therapy. The staff there is well trained, very professional and experienced and was successful in treating and eliminating my shoulder and neck pain and restoring full use and mobility to my left arm and shoulder through my physical therapy sessions with them. Lori Yeaman was my personal physical therapist at this location and she was great. She has an excellent personality for this type of medical service and is very good in designing a physical therapy program for patients that produces successful results. "

"Jason Gulstrom was my therapist for 3 months. If it wasn't for him and his continued support & encouragement, I would have never recovered as quickly as I did. My Ortho Surgeon called it a Christmas miracle! Jason and Amanda were so kind and even made sure my husband stayed comfortable & engaged during my therapy sessions (he was at every appointment). I told everyone who inquired about my experience at RA, I would not go to any other facility unless Jason and Amanda were part of their staff!
Rehab Assocs. should be proud to have Jason and Amanda part of their Appomattox team. "

Nancy from Timberlake Office

"In 2 separate sessions, I've worked with Matthew & Lindsay for the treatment of a soas bursitis condition in my right hip. While this continues to be a chronic condition, the treatment I've gotten from both individuals has greatly reduced my pain level & improved my quality of life.

I would not hesitate to revisit them for any physical therapy requirements & recommend them to anyone with these needs. Matthew & Lindsay are a credit to your organization. "

John from Rustburg Office

"I was very well pleased with my treatments. Therapist Cate Lowe was professional in every way. She explained things well, guided me through each exercise, and provided materials to help me do at-home sessions.
I would have given a five-star rating, however, I was not pleased with my initial contact at the clinic. When I arrived the first time the two receptionists were talking, and I waited several minutes before they even acknowledged that I was standing at the front desk. It was not a good first impression. Also, at my last visit, the receptionist said I needed to pay $21. I asked why since my deductible had been met at a prior session. She checked again and said I did not need to pay anything. "


James from Clifton Office

"I have been working with Lindsay on many areas of my body, hip replacement form UVA, several areas of my back from lower to upper ,IT Band severe damage, and a shoulder injury. She is very knowledgeable and upbeat to not let you get discouraged. "

"I have been going for treatment from Dr. Andy and Megan for quite a while (not sure of the starting date) and they have changed my life. I am a cancer survivor (neck/tongue) and have had a lot of neck pain that was restricting my normal life. Through their very hard work and guidance I am now moving my neck as I did before cancer and the radiation\chemotherapy and side effects that followed. Plus, they are just very good people. They care very much about me as a patient and also as a person. I am impressed with their work. So much so I am convinced that they can help ease my chronic back pain/poor flexibility. I have an appointment at the end of the month with my family doctor. I am going to talk with him about prescribing for me physical therapy to help ease this painful/restricted part of me that is my back. Please convey to Dr. Andy and Megan a heartfelt thank you so much for their hard work. I hope to see them again soon! "

Do it, & do it here at the Monelison office. It can be scarry at first, & yes, there is pain; but the staff knows their craft & care, & will help you as much as they can with the pain. They will even walk you out to your car, or the ride waiting for you. If they don't, speak up. From the beginning before you begin, you can speak with someone & ask all of the questions you would like to regarding treatment as well as insurance & how it all works with your Doctor(s). Continue asking questions throughout your sessions until you understand what the staff means & how it all affects you their client. They want to know how you feel along the way & they are there for you. The staff will welcome you in, treat you like family, & diligently work for your better health. They also offer gym memberships that are worth looking into, & they will allow a parent/guardian to sit in the workout room with their child. It is worth it, I know because I am a long-term client."

At my last visit, Jordan Molstre PT and DPT, quickly analyzed my problem and provided me with personal attention and exercises that enabled me to finally recover from a knee operation from 5 years ago.

I have received physical therapy there to treat two different problems. The first was about four years ago for treatment after a shoulder procedure and the second was for treatment of lower back pain. I was extremely pleased with the professional way they approached my treatment and the outcome both times was beyond my expectations. I did do the home exercises as directed by my therapists and continue to do the exercises at home as recommended which is needed to help maintain the attained improvement. My thanks go out to the great staff at the Rustburg office and if you need physical therapy, I would surely recommend them. "

"The employees at the Appomattox office are always friendly and helpful. While taking my wife in for rehab, I experienced a problem with my back. Had ex rays and was checked out by an Orthopedic Physician and found no major problem. Talked with the physical therapy employs and after looking at my ex-rays they suggested several exercises that may help under my Silver Sneakers program. These exercises have been a tremendous help to me and probably have kept me from having surgery. Joel C"

"After a major back surgery 15 years ago. I have battled chronic back pain, spasms and weakness. After a recent MRI that revealed 2 bulging discs and 2 unsuccessful epidurals I saw Dr. Andy Tatom. After 1 visit, my nerve pain was relieved so significantly that I could sleep through the night and resume most activities that were previously impossible due to pain. The staff here are attentive and aware of my individual needs and my experience here has been excellent in every way. I strongly recommend Andy and his incredible staff to any patient struggling with back pain before proceeding to any other treatments! "

Amy F. from Clifton Street Office

 

"Surgery and recovery are a team effort; the patient, surgeon and staff and the PT crew. The "team" at racva Timberlake has proved to be beyond my expectations! The knowledge, professionalism and personal care are a package deal from everyone. I had a total ankle plus talus replacement, which is unusual to be done together. They did not miss a beat..sometimes I was apprehensive and not sure. They always explained and walked me carefully through the transition. I still have a little ways to go but I am so far along in recovery that I get excited about going to PT! The Timberlake Team is partly responsible for my progress. they are an answer to my prayers that God would show me who to go to! They are a Blessing to anyone in need of PT.

"Rehab Associates offers the best physical therapy in the entire area. They are thorough and keep you moving toward your goals with easily self measured progress. Everybody knows what they're doing and moves seamlessly from activity to activity. You have one-to-one therapy every step of the way. Therapists are specific in their instructions and critique what you're doing so that you' do the activities correctly. When they finish your initial evaluation you are given a home program, if appropriate, to begin immediately. On my first visit back I went through my home program to show I knew how to do them correctly. They have added additional exercises since beginning, many in response to my concerns about specific problems. I could not ask for a more engaged program. So glad to be here and look forward to each session. "

"I have a 31 yr. old high level cervical injury (C4/5) & am now living with paralysis on my entire right side. I was referred to the Bedford, VA practice for some strengthening & balance issues. Having had this injury for 3 decades now, I have certainly seen my share of rehab facilities. For sure, I have seen "the BEST of them..and I have seen the REST of them". Trust me when I tell you that this facility is among the BEST of them. The therapist that has been assigned to me there @ Rehab Assoc. in Bedford is nothing less than outstanding! Dr. Richard Thom is quite thorough & articulate. He listens to what you have to say & I believe that we are both picking up helpful hints from each other. I wasn't sure how he was going to be able to deal with such a "thankless" injury such as mine whereas there will most likely not be any miraculous change but he is doing quite a good job. I would without any hesitation refer anyone to this facility & undoubtedly I'd also direct them to Dr. Thom for their care. Rehab Assoc. is quite fortunate to have this brilliant young man on their staff!"

BRENDA W. from Bedford Office

"I have been at this location four times after surgery. I have always been treated with respect. Everyone there is very professional and concerned about you and how you are proceeding with your treatment. I would recommend this location to anyone that needs rehab. They make you feel at home and part of their family. Great Rehab center."

Charlotte G. from Appomattox Office

 

"When I came in here I was in a lot of pain at times about enough to make me cry by using Aleve on a regular bases the pain became bearable. My Doctor told me to do physical therapy which people told me wouldn't do much for me. From the beginning of my experience all the staff I had contact with were very nice. Jordan was the one who sought to my needs and helped me through my process. In a few weeks I started to feel the difference. I would recommend to my friends and family Appomattox especially Jordan. Sincerely Audrey Ragland."
