Gayle Fischer, Dr. of physical therapy, has treated me twice... Once for plantar fasciitis and another time for a severe quad injury. When my recovery for both conditions seemed impossible, she was the only health professional who could heal me. Other traditional methods and physicians could not resolve my issues. Dr Fischer treated me, have me the tools exercises I needed, and stayed with the treatment until physical issues were resolved. She also incorporates methods and further training to assure you become an advocate for your own health. She also comes to your home when the issue you have prevents you from driving. Amazing health professional!

Dr. Avery's bedside manner and attention to detail is something not seen too often nowadays. Since he is mobile and comes to you is just adds to the many things that separates Dr. Avery from all the other physical therapist's out there. Thank you Dr. Avery !!

The best! I have had two hip replacements and back surgery and Matt has been so instrumental in helping me gain key core strength. He understands my injuries and took it upon himself to call my physical therapist to consult with her with regards to my treatment plan. He is passionate about what he does and getting it right for each client! I highly recommend him.

Wendy has been a savior and an inspiration. I have gone to Wendy's pilates classes and grown stronger and more flexible. But more important to me have been her physical therapy treatments. She has evaluated my strengths, weaknesses, and issues carefully and then tailors her massage and muscle activation therapy to put me back out on my long distance cycling sport. I really appreciate the fact that she teaches me what the specific body parts are doing and how to correct my techniques with exercises and body positioning. She has treated my back, hips, knees, and shoulders. As a 53 year old retired marathon runner and triathlete with hyper-mobile joints that haven't worn well, I really appreciate having Wendy to keep me out of pain and still active. I have been to several physical therapists over the years and she is by far the BEST!

    She personally worked on me right up to the hip replacement date at the end of March. During that time period, she documented a significant increase in both leg strength and range of motion. I too could tell and feel how much better I was doing due to her dogged determination to make me as physically able as possible, going into the surgery. I also felt better after each treatment as she was able to loosen up the hip joint and such. The day after surgery, two hospital PT's asked me to use a walker and see if I could get up and walk a bit with it. I did not only that but down two very long hallways, up and down practice stairs, on and off chairs, etc. They were frankly very impressed that I could do so much, so soon and with such speed and power. I told them that I had been working with Lyndsay and the credit should go to her for coming up with plan that built me up specifically so that I would be in as good a shape as practical going into this. In fact, I did so well, they signed me off for hospital release that same morning. My recovery now is easier and faster because of Lyndsay's work and dedication. I am very grateful for her help and I hopefully, will continue to work with her in the future until all is back to normal. -Barry

    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.
