How much will I have to pay for physical therapy?

If you do not have insurance coverage, discounted cash rates are available and vary depending on diagnosis and treatment.
Is physical therapy only for athletes?
At Performance Therapy Center we treat a variety of injuries including non-sports related, work-related, post-surgical, sports related, as a result of an accident, and many other injuries.
Is physical therapy going to hurt?
Often one of the primary goals of physical therapy is to reduce pain. This is often accomplished through hands on techniques, exercises, and use of modalities including ultrasound, laser, electrical stimulation, and heat/cold therapy.
In some cases to achieve desired goals it is necessary to work on musculature or joints to increase movement or strength. At times this type of care can be uncomfortable, but you can take comfort in knowing that it is being delivered safely and effectively by a skilled physical therapist.
