Chronic pain keeps us from accomplishing daily tasks and pursuing our dreams. If you suffer from chronic pain due to an injury or musculoskeletal condition, our physical therapists and doctors at Ahava Medical & Rehabilitation Center in Brooklyn, New York can help you find the road to recovery. We welcome you to make an appointment with us.
How do I get professional physical therapy?
It is easy to find professional physical therapy. All you need to do is look for a clinic in your area that staffs fully certified physical therapists, or doctors who are certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and book an appointment to see them. At Ahava Medical & Rehabilitation Center, we have multiple doctors and physical therapists who can provide professional and expert care for you, whatever your condition is.
How much does it cost to receive physical therapy?
While it depends on the exact kind of physical therapy you require, a single physical therapy session may cost you anywhere between $125-350 without insurance. Luckily, we are happy to accept most major insurance providers at Ahava Medical & Rehabilitation Center so that physical therapy can be more affordable to you. We also have payment plan options, if the price is too steep up front.
How do you know if you should seek physical therapy?
If you have an injury or experience significant pain that stubbornly refuses to subside or go away, and which negatively affects your mobility, it is likely in your best interest to seek the help of a physical therapist. Serious injuries from accidents, sports, or some other kind of physical activity almost always require some form of physical therapy for proper healing to happen. Physical therapy is also a tremendous help for chronic pain or musculoskeletal issues. We can treat patients who suffer from sports injuries, accidents, heart attacks or strokes, arthritis, and more. We also can treat patients who have undergone a surgical procedure and require therapy to restore range of motion and other motor functions.
How often should you go to a physical therapy clinic?
The amount of times that you should visit a physical therapy clinic will depend on the severity of your injury or condition. Our physical therapists are committed to helping you experience the most complete recovery you can, and this means that multiple visits will likely be essential to your recovery. It takes time and repetitive exercises for scar tissue to break down and range of motion to be restored, so you should expect to see your physical therapist regularly (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly) for the duration of your treatment, or until you start seeing positive results. The further down the road to recovery you get, the less frequent your visits will be.
That said, it is not entirely uncommon for patients to only require one or two visits, if your injury or condition is minor. For most patients, though, physical therapy is a recurring need to heal an injury, maintain strength, and prevent further injury.
