Joey is an amazingly talented massage therapist! And this coming from me means a lot as I am very picky when it comes to my massages! He has a very unique massage style and combines different techniques to one wonderful, flowing relaxation therapy. Give Joey a try and trust he will make you feel good even hours after the massage has ended :)

I have been working WITH David since January, and it has been an incredible experience. His health maintenance philosophy is holistic and collaborative, and he considers my physical conditioning and my nutritional goals in every session. He is extremely knowledgeable, and he demonstrates a sincere interest in helping me achieve my goal goals. He is punctual, accommodating, pleasant, attentive, and caring, and he has assisted me in maintaining my commitment by traveling to my home for my sessions. Until I started working with David I had no idea that I could get a robust, meaningful workout without the use of "machines"! In the privacy of my own home, with my own body weight, equipment that he provides, and household fixtures, like stairs, I have been able to increase my fitness level, I have decreased my joint pain, I have toned and strengthened all areas of my body, I have increased my energy level, and I feel amazing.

I’m grateful that Tyler was my first ever personal trainer. He is knowledgeable, professional, creative, and a lot of fun. Tyler is also a physical therapist, and gave me exercises that accommodated my aging body’s aches and pains, while strengthening it. He explained the relationships between weight and reps, muscle building and toning. Tyler wrote a lot down for me, how to work out for strength, for endurance, the science of hypertrophy and metabolic training. He designed workouts that enabled me to continue working on my own. I can see in retrospect that the large variety of exercises he taught me emphasized cycles of rotating reps and movements, to continue muscle growth. I'm still learning, but I had a very good teacher, and I'm on my way. Thank you, Tyler!

Dr. Perretto is a true professional and a master in her area of orthopedic therapy. She personally caters every physical therapy rehabilitation program to benefit each patient’s needs and ability. Before being referred to Dr. Perretto I worked with countless Physical Therapists each time not fully reaching rehabilitation. When I was finally referred to Dr. Perretto as a bilateral hip labrum reconstruction patient, I was in constant pain and had little to no control over my hypermobility let alone aware I was hypermobile. Dr. Perretto created a personalized program to fit my needs and through the one-on-one sessions was able to get me pain free, stronger and educated about hypermobility. She recently rehabilitated me through my last labral repair and at 15 weeks post op I am stronger and further along with my physical therapy program than any of my other surgeries. She cares for her patients as if they were family and always goes the extra mile to ensure her patients reach their goals.

Rob treated me a few months back for my knee pain. I am a former wrestler and currently coach high school wrestling, so it is very important that I got back on my feet after a knee injury sustained when grappling. Working with Robert really allowed me to return coaching and handle all of the demonstrations with the athletes. Can’t thank him enough!

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.
