Services

At Physical Therapy Solutions, we will provide physical therapy services that are not only designed to maximize your clinical outcome, but are personal and caring in nature. We take pride not only in our quality care and outcomes, but also in our level of customer service. We will strive to maximize clinical outcomes through extensive evaluation and treatment of symptoms and a proactive approach to addressing the underlying biomechanical causes.

The staff at Physical Therapy Solutions uses both hands-on manual treatment techniques as well as exercise based treatment programs to address a wide variety of non operative and post operative diagnoses. We believe both methods, when used together, provide the best possible outcome. Also, we understand that everyone responds differently to treatments. That is why each plan of care is tailored to each individual’s needs.

No matter the joint affected; knee, hip, shoulder, or ankle, the staff at Physical Therapy Solutions will help you get back to the highest level of function possible, while controlling pain and other side effects of a joint replacement surgery.

While there are several ways to treat the spine, we at Physical Therapy Solutions believe a comprehensive approach that uses both hands-on manual techniques and exercise based treatment techniques provide the best outcomes possible. It is our goal to get you back to the activities you love as fast as possible.

Physical Therapy Solutions offers both over the counter and custom molded foot orthotics to help alleviate your pain and symptoms by helping to correct biomechanical issues affecting the ankle and foot. By helping to correct mechanical flaws, orthotics can help you return to a pain free lifestyle and activities you love.

At Physical Therapy Solutions, we strive to decrease your recovery time and facilitate a quick return to the sports you love. Our staff have a diverse background of upper level athletics, maintain active lifestyles, and have close working relationships with local athletic organizations. Our understanding of biomechanical demands combined with first-hand knowledge of sport specific techniques, skills, and proper form gives us a unique expertise and ability to get you safely back to your previous level of competition and beyond.

Some things just happen too fast to detect with the naked eye. From running form and gait analysis to pitching and throwing mechanics, Physical Therapy Solutions uses slow motion video analysis to pinpoint and identify potentially dangerous mechanical flaws that could lead to injury. Once the flaws are diagnosed, the cause of these issues can be addressed and a correction plan can be established to keep you safe and injury free.

Available at all of our locations, dry needling is an invasive procedure that involves inserting a solid filament needle into a myofascial trigger point within a muscle. This process promotes mechanical and biochemical changes within the muscle without the use of medication. When used as an adjunct to a physical therapy program, dry needling can effectively relieve pain and improve mobility.

FAQ

For Additional Questions Please Contact Us

Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

With the exception of Medicare patients, we operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physician’s referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

At Physical Therapy Solutions, we participate in most health care plans and accept a variety of smaller plans. Additionally, we offer a variety of flexible self-pay and payment plan options. We understand that your injury may have a profound impact on your finances and are committed to finding a way to help you in a cost effective manor.

Many plans require that you make a co-payment at the time of your visit. We accept cash, check, or credit cards.

Some insurance plans may require that you get authorization from them before you visit us. Since this varies by plan and can be quite confusing, and sometimes overwhelming, please allow our staff to assist you. We do, however, encourage you to take an active role and share communication you receive from your insurance company with us. It is our goal that there be no “surprises” when it comes to the financial side of healthcare.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to fill out initial paperwork.

You should also bring a copy of your prescription your physician gave you as well as a driver’s license and your insurance cards.

Comfortable, loose clothing and athletic shoes. For women with shoulder or back problems, a tank-top or sports bra under your t-shirt would be ideal. For hip/knee and ankle issues, shorts are encouraged, as we will need to be able to access the injured area.

“Kevin is the best PT ever!!!!”

Tori, Innsbrook / Glen Allen, VA

“Having coached literally hundreds of runners in my 30+year coaching career, Physical Therapy Solutions has ALWAYS been my Go-To provider to send my athletes! They always work with the whole team (athlete, coach, parent and school athletic trainer) to find the most appropriate way to return to competition without jeopardizing a young athlete’s future! At age 58 faced with a ruptured Quad Tendon, I turned to Physical Therapy Solutions for one of the most difficult assignments. The staff at PTS worked diligently and were incredible. I think the one thing they did best was to be realistic in what I could expect from a very debilitating surgery and developing a treatment plan that established reachable goes. The end result at age 61 I ran the Jacksonville River Run 15k without pain! I highly recommend Physical Therapy Solutions!”
