One of the best decisions I have ever made! After 6 months laying flat due to a medical condition I lost a huge % of my muscle mass. I could hardly sit up in bed at the age of 30.. After seeing 7 different specialist in my healthcare world, I had pretty much given up hope.. No physical therapy or even gym workouts were helping due to a surgery scar tuning from my rib cage all the way down to my pelvic bone.. ONE week after starting with Thrive, I was no longer shaking while sitting up and I could even pick both legs off the ground using my stomach muscles that had not engaged for over a year!!!!!! Amazing work and soooo worth the money and our 1hour drive!!!!!

As a retired Marine, my body was in need of physical therapy and strength and conditioning. I was recommended to Therd by a close friend that has trained with him in San Diego, CA for triathlons and other endurance events. He came highly recommended. Therd has an impressive demeanor about him that makes him seemingly more mature beyond his years. Therd, also, has a sharp wit about him that he has brought to every training session. He is a highly skilled and educated professional that brings an arsenal of training methods, exercises, knowledge and experience that gets the results in a safe and fast manner. I trained with him for 5 years prior to his move to Portland, OR. And, till this day, I still do what I learned from him and I feel great everyday. Therd has been not only an exceptional fitness trainer to me, but has also been a excellent life coach to me. I would highly recommended Therd to anybody who is looking for results in personal fitness training and personal growth.

Natalie takes a very personal and active approach to identifying the problem areas and directing treatment towards regaining your modility and remaining active, not just simple recovery. She's focused on getting you involved in the treatment. Having done physical therapy before, I remember doing a lot of work when not at the appointments. Natalie makes it easy to continue treatment at home, both by going over the exercises in detail and using online tools that are easily available. I'm happy to take the time that is needed to get the results I'm after and to do that with the help of Natalie.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
