Frequently Asked Questions

Q.
What is physical therapy?
A.

Physical therapy is the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. Physical therapy uses neuromuscular re-education exercises, manual therapy (similar to massage), and patient education to decrease your pain and help you return to your pre-injury functionality.

Q.
What is a Physical therapist?
A.

Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. In many cases, this can be accomplished without surgery, and often reduces patents’ need for long-term medication.

Q.
Will Physical Therapy cause me pain?
A.

No, physical therapy should not cause more pain than you are already experiencing. However, there is a difference between pain and muscle soreness. Someone unfamiliar with muscle soreness may perceive strong discomfort; however this is a good sign that you are building muscle and regaining your normal functionality.

Q.
What type of physical therapy does Centre do?
A.

At Centre we specialize in orthopedic injuries, whether ongoing or recent (e.g. something that happened as a result of a car accident, slip, sprain/strain, or overuse injury). We’re also experts in post-surgical rehabilitation, and can help you restore your mobility.

Q.
Do I need a Physician’s prescription (referral) for Physical Therapy?
A.

If you have Medicare or BCBS (Blue Cross Blue Shield) then you will need a prescription from your primary care chiropractor or orthopedic physician. Through Direct Access in Illinois, if you have any other type of insurance, then you can receive either ten physical therapy visits or be seen over a three week time period (whichever comes first) before requiring a physical therapy prescription from any physician, physician assistant, or chiropractor.

Q.
Do you accept insurance?
A.

Yes! We accept most major forms of health insurance including PPOs, and will be credentialed with Medicare shortly. We do not accept HMO payment plans, but are happy to offer a sliding-scale self-pay rate.
