Arielle is a very straightforward, hardworking, and dedicated trainer. She is helping me build my body so that I can have more energy and strength to do the things I love most. She really knows her stuff and most importantly she pays very close attention to where my limits are so that I feel safe. She stays in communication and always follows up when necessary. For anyone who feels they need a personal trainer to show them the ropes or give them the motivation to reach their physical fitness goals I would definitely recommend Arielle.

I am so happy to have found this astoundingly wonderful masseuse. He took great care to relax me, and then gave me a desperately needed massage and therapy session to try to help my shoulder & arm, and relieve my pain. He took time to explain what he was doing and why he was doing it, and gave me 'homework' regarding things I can do at home to help my problem. Very professional. Very highly recommended.

I had the opportunity to work with Lauren when I first decided that it was time to improve my physical fitness. Lauren was a valuable resource in improving my nutrition. She always made time to educate me, not only by recommending specific foods or nutrition plans, but explaining the science behind those recommendations. When it came to my actual workouts, Lauren always knew when I was holding back and would call me out, not allowing me to cheat myself. She also made sure that I scaled back the intensity when I had, or was rehabbing, an injury. Lauren knows how to get the most from her clients and does so in a safe manner. She is strict when it comes to performing movements correctly as she truly has her clients best interest at heart. Overall, Lauren is a very knowledgeable and motivating trainer. Anybody who chooses to work with Lauren will see the benefit of doing so.

Caleb is the first out of many physical therapists to actually reduce my back pain as much as he did. He also has shown me that it's possible to do activities I was told I wouldn't ever be able to do. He's a great physics therapist and I would recommend him to anyone in need of PT!

We provide physical as well as spiritual healing to all of our clients. The therapist is a certified massage therapist. She specializes in deep tissue massage. She is also a spiritual profiler who is able to go seven layers deep with her patients rather quickly -- quicker than a psychotherapist. This type of therapy enables all patients to experience healing and solutions for life issues that may have been disabling them from progressing spiritually in their lives. Our revolutionary therapy ends up being a whole lot quicker and cheaper than any other kind of therapy.

Misaligned vertebrae can disrupt the flow of information through the body's nervous system resulting in bad things such as pain, but also cool things such as the inability to feel pain. At Restoration Chiropractic, we specialize in realigning vertebrae to bring balance back to your body and freeing your nervous system to work at its optimal. To supplement spinal realignment, we offer massage therapy, physiotherapy and nutritional counseling.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are the different types of physical therapy?

Physical therapists work with people who have been injured or people who are ill to improve their movement and help them manage their pain. The U.S. Department of Labor explains that physical therapists “are often an important part of rehabilitation, treatment, and prevention of patients with chronic conditions, illnesses, or injuries.” Physical therapists can also choose to specialize in one of nine areas. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, these areas of specialization are:

  • Cardiovascular and Pulmonary
  • Clinical Electrophysiology
  • Geriatrics
  • Neurology
  • Oncology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Pediatrics
  • Sports and
  • Women's Health

 

The national average cost for a physical therapist is $60 to $80, although it will cost more if the patient is paying for services out of pocket rather than through insurance. If you have insurance and want to work with a physical therapist for a specialty area, such as oncology or geriatrics, you may need a referral from your general practitioner. Patients who are paying directly for services can often contact the physical therapist directly.

What exactly does a physical therapist do?

A physical therapist is a health care provider who assists patients with mobility improvement and pain management. Often patients are referred to a physical therapist by a primary care doctor or specialist for help recovering from a surgery or traumatic injury, such as a car crash. Physical therapists help patients manage pain that results from chronic disease and other illness. Physical therapy can help enhance mobility when patients are faced with neurological disorders, such as after a stroke, and provide relief from arthritis or other mobility and pain issues.   

A physical therapist uses medical exercise equipment and exercises to empower patients to regain flexibility and mobility where possible. They may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more to improve muscle control and movement. A physical therapist uses physical movement to help heal the patient, but also can sometimes prescribe medication as appropriate. A physical therapist can also become board certified in one of nine specialty areas.

Why is physical therapy important?

Physical therapy can help you recover range of motion and ease pain after injury, accident or illness. Many people are prescribed physical therapy by their primary care doctor or specialist after a car accident, surgery or sports-related injury. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to start physical therapy, but unless you are paying out of pocket for the services, your insurance provider might require a referral. Physical therapy is also a medical solution for pain associated with chronic illness such as osteoarthritis and can be used for recovery after a stroke or other neurological disorders.

Physical therapy teaches you how to move your body in a safe and healing way to regain strength and movement. During a physical therapy session, the PT will teach you to use medical exercise equipment and approved exercises to regain your lost flexibility and improve your mobility where possible. You may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more. From young children to seniors, patients of any age can benefit from the science-based movements and exercises that encourage flexibility, rebuild muscle, and ease stiff joints.

How much does a physical therapy session cost?

The national average cost for a physical therapy session is $60 to $80, although the cost may be higher if the patient pays out of pocket for the services instead of being covered by insurance. Physical therapy sessions may last from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the therapist and your medical needs. When paying out of pocket, session rates may range from an average of $75-$300 or more, depending on the location, length of session, and specialization of the therapist. Standard out-of-pocket rates average $150 per session. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, physical therapists may become board certified in one of nine specialties: Cardiovascular and Pulmonary, Clinical Electrophysiology, Geriatrics, Neurology, Oncology, Orthopaedics, Pediatrics, Sports, and Women's Health. To receive this board specialist certification, the physical therapist must complete a minimum of 2,000 hours of clinical work in their specialty area and pass an exam. A physical therapist who is board certified in a specialty may charge higher rates to account for their advanced training and expertise.
