WHAT IS MOVEMENT RESTORATION?
Movement Restoration is for people who want to return to life they envision without limitations or pain. It's for people who:
Want to save time and money.
Don't have the time to travel to an out-patient clinic.
Prefer to be treated in their own home. or
Can't get away from work to seek treatment they need.
Want to avoid surgery, injections, and prescription pain medications.
Who want personalized treatment that meets their needs and is crafted around their goals.
Are struggling getting back to work.
Want to return to their hobbies or sports.
Are fearful of falling or losing their independence.
DO I NEED A REFERRAL FROM MY PHYSICIAN?
No. Oregon is a Direct Access state meaning laws indicate that you have the power to take control of your health and seek physical therapy services without the need of a referral from your physician.
Studies have shown that direct access to physical therapy services can lead to expedited care, improved recovery outcomes, and decreased healthcare costs.
All the more reason to schedule an appointment today!
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
The traditional insurance model does not allow me to treat the way I feel is best for you or spend the time with you that you deserve.
This allows me to spend more quality 1-on-1 time with you and will help you feel better faster. While most PT clinics see you 3x a week with many other patients at the same time, I'll usually see you 1-2x a week. You tend to need less visits, and in the long run may end up spending less with me than a traditional PT practice when you consider your deductible, co-pay, and extra visits needed.
Additionally, because of the nature of my business (traveling to the home and office and spending an hour or more with my clients) I do NOT take insurance and am considered an out-of-network provider with ALL insurance companies. If you have out-of-network benefits with your health insurance I will provide you with all of the documentation needed to turn into your insurance company for reimbursement. Therefore payment is due at the time of service.
Many times your insurance company may reimburse you for all or some of your PT services, especially if you have a PPO (instead of an HMO). Again, I’ll give you all the information you need to get reimbursed.
Movement Restoration, PLLC is not a Medicare Provider, so law prevents me from providing Medicare patients with what would be considered “normally covered services.” If you are a Medicare beneficiary and would still like to request treatment or have questions, please call us me at (605) 881 -3511.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE OUT OF NETWORK BENEFITS?
This is easy! All you have to do is call your insurance company and ask them if your plan includes out of network benefits. The number is typically on the back of your insurance card. If you do have out of network benefits ask your insurance company the following questions:
Do I have an out of network deductible?
Have I met my deductible for the year? If not how far away am I from meeting the deductible?
Is there paperwork that must be filled out when submitting the out of network claims? If so do you provide that paperwork?
Do I need to be pre-certified for physical therapy sessions in order to receive reimbursement?
WHAT AREAS OF THE PORTLAND-METRO DO YOU TRAVEL TO?
The Happy Valley area is my most-central location. However, I travel to and service patients in the following areas (see map below):
WHAT TYPE OF SPACE DO I NEED FOR TREATMENT?
Preferably a quiet, private space for evaluation and treatment, whether it's at home or at your office. If you would like to meet somewhere else, contact me and we can decide on a space to connect.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Preferably something flexible or loose in order for the area of concern to be appropriately evaluated and/or treated.
Ideally, a tank top for upper extremity (shoulder,elbow,wrist) and neck problems and shorts for lower back and lower extremity (hip,knee,ankle) problems.
WHAT DO YOU BRING WITH YOU WHEN YOU ARE TRAVELING TO SEE YOUR CLIENTS?
I will be bringing a treatment table and all the necessary equipment and/or tools (if needed).
DO I NEED IMAGING BEFORE I MAKE AND APPOINTMENT.
Typically, no. A comprehensive evaluation of your history, your pain level, and how you move will give me more information than an x-ray, MRI, or a CT scan. If necessary, I will coordinate with your physician to rule out any abnormal pathology.
Additionally, even if you've had unfavorable imaging, a picture primarily only tells us about structure, not necessarily how you move and why you hurt. I've worked with many people who have had severe changes indicated on their image that have obtained successful outcomes with conservative treatment.
Don't be convinced that your diagnostic image is your destiny.
