How long after an injury should I wait before getting treatment?
In most cases, addressing an injury or pain sooner than later should become a top priority. However, in some immediate injury cases, you may want to rest for a few days to allow inflammation and severe pain to reduce before coming to see us. If you have been in a car accident or are unable to walk due to an injury, you should talk to your physician or call us here at WildHawk Physical Therapy about your options. If you are uncertain what to do regarding any pain or injury, please reach out to us and we will be happy to guide you through the next steps at no cost to you.
What types of injuries, body parts and syndromes are treated at WildHawk Physical Therapy?
We primarily treat athletes and active older adults. However we see patients for post-operative rehabilitation as well. We treat headaches, neck, lower back, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and elbow pain. We see a variety of injuries including rotator cuff tears, labral tears, meniscus tears, ligament tears, ankle sprains, sciatica and arthritis.
Will I see a licensed physical therapist each visit?
Yes. For the evaluation and every treatment you will be seen one-on-one with a Doctor of Physical Therapy.
What are some of the most common surgeries you treat?
Of course there are numerous surgeries, but the ones we see most often are rotator cuff repairs, hip/knee/shoulder replacements, ligament repairs, laminectomies, and spinal fusions.
Do I have to stop my sport or activity while I am getting treatment?
The short answer is, IT DEPENDS. It is likely that you will be able to participate in some of your usual activities, but depending on the severity of the pain or injury, you may have to rest as part of your recovery period. However, exercise is one of the most important aspects of moving and feeling better. We will be able to provide a thorough examination and recommend the most appropriate amount of activity and exercise to allow you to remain active and heal.
Will my insurance be billed for my visit?
No. We are strictly cash-based, however a super bill will be provided to you upon request, at which point you can submit a claim independently to your insurance for reimbursement. We will be happy to assist you in this process. Refer to our Rates and Insurance page to find out more detailed information about insurance reimbursement.
Can I get reimbursed from my insurance for services performed at WildHawk Physical Therapy?
The most likely answer to this question is yes, but it does depend on your specific insurance plan. This works for most non-Medicare plans and is as simple as sending a self-claim to your insurance company for our services. You will need to either contact your insurance company directly or file a claim using a form found on your insurance company’s website. You will need to send this form with a super bill of our services that we will provide to you upon request. Refer to our Rates and Insurance page to find out more detailed information about insurance reimbursement.
Can I be seen during the COVID-19 Pandemic?
Yes. We are an essential healthcare provider and are able to provide a safe environment via social distancing, hand hygiene and wearing masks.
Do I need a physician’s referral to be seen at WildHawk Physical Therapy?
No. We are a Direct Access provider and are able to evaluate and treat you without a physician referral. If a physician referral is needed for insurance reimbursement we are happy to help you reach out to your physician to obtain one.
Can you treat ALL medical diagnoses?
No. We will always refer you back to your primary physician or specialist if we discover any sign/symptoms that are of concern and outside our scope of practice.
How long are treatment sessions?
We prefer to schedule 1 hour sessions in a one-on-one environment to allow for the proper amount of time to treat our patients with the highest quality care, however we do offer 30 minute appointments upon patient request.
