You Have Questions and We Have Answers!

Do you have questions about the services offered at Pivot Physical Therapy?  If so, we are delighted to answer them!  Read our frequently asked questions below. If you don't find the answer you're looking for, please submit your question below.

I'm starting a half marathon training program, but it's so hot! How do I avoid getting sick when I work out in the summer heat?

 

Acclimate - Let your body gradually adapt to the heat by spending time outdoors periodically during the day versus an all or nothing approach.


Beverages - Drink plenty of fluids; water is best. Avoid sodas and energy drinks. If you like a little zest, flavored waters are okay. Remember to take frequent water breaks and replenish fluids that are lost during workouts. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink.


Clothing - Wear light, breathable fabrics and light colors. Dark colors attract heat.

How long will my first appointment last?

 

Your initial visit will usually last one hour. Your therapist will provide a thorough evaluation and initial treatment. It is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing.

Are physical therapy treatments covered by health insurance programs?

 

Most therapy treatments are covered by health insurance. We will assist you in determining the amount of your insurance coverage as well as the frequency of treatments.

Do you have to be an athlete to receive your services?

 

At Pivot Physical Therapy, we treat a variety of injuries. In fact, the majority of injuries are non-sports related; they may be post-surgical, work-related or as a result of an accident. Our therapists are trained to meet all of your needs.

What will happen once therapy is completed?

 

Upon discharge, you will be given a home exercise program to further enhance your rehabilitation outcome and prevent the possibility of future re-injury. You also have the option to participate in our Wellness Program.

After an acute injury, should I use ice or a heat pad?

 

Use a heating pad or hot pad before you stretch or if you have a muscle spasm. We recommend that after an acute injury you should use ice for 48 hours to help control pain and spasms while minimizing the total damage of the injury by lowering the metabolic needs of the healthy tissue surrounding the injury site.
