Get some answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions we get at Movement Solutions.
What makes Movement Solutions different?
We specialize working with a particular group of people. They happen to be active adults in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. We prioritize quality of care and therefore all our sessions are one-to-one with a licensed provider. We spend the time needed to give excellent care. We use a whole-body approach to determine the root cause of a musculoskeletal problem. Our treatment approach is in the context of getting our patients back to their active lifestyle. Our process involves alleviation of pain and discomfort, restoration of movement and mobility, and development of strength and durability.
This is in contrast to a traditional physical therapy clinic. In these settings, patient appointments are routinely double and triple booked. Treatments are supervised by technicians and assistants. And patients are often left to their own devices, pulling on stretch cords and riding stationary bikes. In the midst of this chaos, providers may be seen catching up on notes and juggling multiple patients. The focus of treatment is often symptom management without a plan of returning to activity or sport.
Do I need a physician’s referral?
No referral is needed to perform a comprehensive evaluation and initiate a course of treatment. However, after 30 days South Carolina state law requires a physician’s referral for physical therapy.
How does this work with insurance?
At this time, we do not directly bill insurance. However, we do partner with Reimbursify. They help patients who pay out-of-pocket get reimbursed by their health insurance. We provide you with an itemized reciept called a “superbill.” After each visit, submit the superbill you receive via the Reimbursify app. They work with your insurance to get you reimbursed. Reimbursement varies depending on your of your insurance plan and out-of-network physical therapy benefits.
Can I use my FSA/HSA?
Yes. Physical Therapy is a medical service and is therefore a FSA/HSA eligible expense.
What type of conditions and injuries do we treat?
Common conditions that we see in our office include low back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, tennis elbow, shoulder impingement, rotator cuff problems, tennis elbow, ACL reconstruction, knee tendinitis, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, hip pain, sprains and strains, muscle and tendon injuries, post and pre surgical rehab, and a host of other muscle/bone problems.
What should I wear?
Wear clothes that you would be comfortable exercising in so that we can easily assess your movement and mobility.
