What is Dry Needling? Is it Acupuncture?
Dry needling is not acupuncture. Acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese medicine. Dry needling is based on modern Western medicine principles and is supported by research. Dry needling is used to release trigger points (or “knots”) in the muscle tissue. These trigger points can cause significant pain, decreased mobility, and impaired muscle performance. Dry needling is a very effective technique that generates quick results.
Do you accept my insurance?
I have chosen to use a business model that allows me to provide the highest quality care to my patients. In traditional physical therapy clinics that accept insurance, treatment decisions are often influenced by insurance reimbursement rates and what the insurance company is willing to cover. This does not put your needs first. Because of this, I have chosen to not accept any insurance. I work for you, not the insurance companies.
Will my insurance company reimburse me?
Some insurance companies will reimburse patients who are seen by out-of-network providers. I can provide you with the information that you need in order to find out if your insurance company will reimburse you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
Do I need a physician’s referral?
No, you do not need a physician’s referral for physical therapy. All 50 states have “Direct Access” for physical therapy. Direct access means that you can go directly to a physical therapist without having to wait to get in with your physician prior to starting physical therapy. This means less time waiting to get treated, quicker recoveries, and getting back to what you love faster.
