What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy is the assessment and treatment of the condition which is causing your pain. If you can’t play with your kids because of back pain, for example, or your knee pain prevents you from keeping fit or going for long walks, we try to figure out why this is happening. We will assess the problem and try to fix it in the quickest time frame possible
What happens during a FREE consultation?
We start by having a chat about your pain. We will work together to work out how this pain affects you from day to day and how we can reduce the pain and increase your ability to have a better quality of life. We then come up with a treatment plan and start working towards your goals
What can I expect during a session?
Sessions vary from patient to patient. The first thing we do is a detailed assessment. This involves some questions and special tests to hopefully identify where your complaint is originating. This will dictate where the we go next. It usually involves some hands on treatment and mobility exercises aimed at relieving your symptoms. When this is finished you will get advice on what you need to do when you get home to help the recovery process speed up
Is Physical Therapy suitable for my injury?
Physical Therapy is suitable for the majority of aches and pains. The best advice would be, if you have a fresh injury which you know can be helped by Physical Therapy, just book a treatment at the most convenient time for you. If you are unsure if Physical Therapy is right for you, whether it is a long term or short term complaint, simply book in for your FREE Consultation where we can discuss your complaint and devise a treatment plan.
Is my visit covered by my Health Insurance?
Physical Therapy sessions are redeemable under most major health insurers. Reimbursement rates vary depending on your individual Plan so it is advisable to check your level of cover with your insurance provider. Treatment costs are tax deductible and as a taxpayer, you can claim 20% tax relief on all medical bills. Download the MED1 form and send it to your local tax office to claim tax relief on your treatment sessions. Download the MED1 from the Revenue website, revenue.ie. Physical Therapy treatments are also covered under the Garda Insurance scheme.
