Our Manual Physical Therapy Treatment Model:
We are anything BUT 2x per week for 6 weeks, just to use up your insurance!
What most people think of when they hear the term “Physical Therapy” is very far from what you experience at River Oaks Physical Therapy. You do not enter a gym-type setting with a lot of exercise machines. You enter a peaceful, inviting space with a few key components: Our treatment tables, modalities like e-stim and ultrasound units, our diagnostic skills, and our hands.
All of our patients are viewed and evaluated in a holistic way. Every patient gets full personalized attention from out therapist and each supporting staff member. Every part of the body relates to all other areas, and you may be surprised by the implications of this when looking for the true underlying cause of your pain. Though a person is experiencing a pain in certain part of the body, the cause of it quite often lie elsewhere in the body.
Though movement and exercise are vital in all our patients’ plans of care, we do not agree with having patients pay to perform exercises in the clinic when they can be done as part of a home exercise program. Therefore, when exercises or stretches are needed, we give thorough instruction on how to perform them so you can do them on your own time. Our home programs often also include self-treatment techniques so you can continue mobilizing your tissues and joints between appointments.
At River Oaks Physical Therapy, time is spent only on the components of treatment and rehabilitation that you could not reproduce on your own.
Our goal with every patient is to quickly identify the true causes of your symptoms, and then apply highly effective Manual Therapy techniques to resolve your pain and get you back to doing the activities you want as soon as possible without pain and limitations.
With the hands-on techniques we use, and the fact that each treatment is an hour of one-on-one care, the time it takes to resolve pain and injury is usually far less than at other clinics.
If our approach to treatment sounds like a good fit for you, then give us a call to experience how we are different. Our Manual therapy techniques greatly enhance quick recovery as evidenced by many of our patients who assert that their pain has been abolished in 2-4 visits or very dependable prognosis for a length of treatment.
1. Cost effective care:
We have the extensive education and training to be neuromuscular primary care experts. For the majority of patients’ with movement problems we are the provider of choice. For people with high deductibles, it makes financial sense to pay out of pocket for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment.
Fifty percent of Americans will experience some type of musculoskeletal episode each year. We are a third-party-free alternative for self-pay patients.
Patients typically have a shorter wait times with us. Most clinical prediction rules state that the sooner the patient is seen the better the outcome.
Let’s face it, you are becoming impatient driving around town, filling out insurance forms wherever they go. The busier you are the less tolerate you become with poor customer service.
3. Transparent Affordable Pricing:
For the self-pay patients we offer fair, simple and transparent prices which is crucial. We eliminate the added administrative costs when submitting claims to insurance companies. No more “We’ll send to insurance and see what they pay” when you know that the charges are coming out of the patient’s pocket.
4. Patient-Practitioners Relationship:
Imagine a practice where that doesn’t demand your insurance card and ID before they say hello. Imagine a practice where money doesn’t get in the way of you getting to know us.
Taking insurance middlemen out of the equation allows us to present themselves as an emphatic professional who understands the true cost of healthcare.
5. All Patients Are Welcome:
All patients, insured or uninsured, in network or out-of-network are welcome. Patients aren’t rejected because of your insurance carrier. We are free from outside interference to address the circumstances and needs of individual patients.
We strive to satisfy a growing appetite among consumers. Today’s healthcare consumer has become embolden to know what care cost is and are demanding more transparent pricing.
Just like you do in every other area of your purchasing lives you search online, compare, asks your friends before making a wise purchase.
There is a growing intolerance towards the hidden cost of healthcare. We are getting better prepared for the next generation of healthcare consumers. Below is an illustration of the cost.
