INSURANCE,
FORMS, & POLICIES

INSURANCE
At Excel OSPT we provide our patients the courtesy of verifying their Physical Therapy benefits. However, it is always in the patient's best interest to be familiar with their Physical Therapy benefits package. We accept all major insurance plans, Medicare, Workers Compensation and No Fault. For questions please contact us, we would be happy to walk you through the process. 

No prescription? No problem. The ability to visit an orthopedic physical therapist without a physician’s prescription or referral is called Direct Access, and it can get you on a speedier path to recovery.

WHAT TO WEAR TO THERAPY

When it comes to choosing an appropriate outfit for your physical therapy appointments there are a few basic things to keep in mind. The clothing you wear may have to do with the specific injury or body part that is being treated during your therapy appointment. Although some of these may differ based on the body part you’re focusing on — there are generally a few considerations to follow.

Consider these three factors:

1.    What is your range-of-motion like in the clothing? Are you able to move around easily?

2.    Can your doctor or physical therapist easily access or see the affected areas?

3.    How comfortable are you in the clothing you’ve decided on? Will you be able to do exercises in them? Can you move around or stretch comfortably?

It is especially important that you avoid any tight-fitting, restrictive clothing. Proper physical therapy attire includes:

•    Loose t-shirts

•    Athletic shorts  

•    Workout pants/training pants — pants with a loose or elastic waistband.

•    Proper undergarments — sports bras, etc.

•    Proper foot ware

Always wear socks and sneakers to your physical therapy appointment — unless you are unable to. Supportive athletic sneakers, or tennis shoes, are your best options. Stay away from wearing sandals, heels, or slip-on shoes (unless absolutely necessary). Slip-on shoes, open-toed shoes, and shoes that do not have non-skid soles can put you at risk for an injury.
