Physical Therapy

With billions of nerves, 206 bones, 632 muscles, and 75,000 miles of blood vessels, it’s not surprising how much can go wrong.

Throughout our lifetime, our bodies are put through numerous physical stressors, overuse conditions, strains, injuries and disease processes. At Barr Center for Innovative Pain & Regenerative Therapies, physical therapy is concerned with the prevention and management of movement disorders. Consistency is also important to the success of physical therapy; therefore, you will be treated by the same therapists for the duration of your therapy.

Physical Therapy | Barr CenterOur physical therapists are specialists in the evaluation and treatment of movement and postural dysfunction. They are interested in preventing the onset and/or slowing the progression of conditions resulting from injury, disease and other causes. This is achieved by using hands-on techniques, as well as instruction in posture, balance and exercises.  Our treatment team works closely together to meet your needs through the establishment of treatment objectives and goals that can be realistically met.

Physical therapy referrals

Our medical providers will determine which physical therapy services will best improve your outcomes. We will provide you with a referral for physical therapy, and an initial evaluation and follow-up visits will then be scheduled. Physician referral for physical therapy from other doctors and chiropractors outside of our practice are welcome.  Direct Access to our physical therapists is coming soon.  We will work with your referring physician to provide the best service to resolve your pain and mobility complaints.

Physical therapy services are often covered by insurance

Most insurance plans will cover physical therapy; however, each plan has limits and restrictions. We will be happy to inquire as to your benefits, but it is your responsibility to know what your insurance coverage is prior to your first visit. If your insurance requires an authorization for physical therapy, you will be required to have that before you are seen. Also, if you have received physical therapy at any other facilities, your benefits may be more limited, or even exhausted.
