What Should Patients Wear When Going to a Physical Rehabilitation Appointment?
Patients should be dressed in loose-fitting clothes during their appointment. Loose-fitting clothing won’t interfere with range of motion, which will improve your ability to perform certain stretches and exercises. Please feel free to contact our office for more information.
Do Patients Need to Arrive Early for Their Physical Rehabilitation Appointment?
Patients should come a few minutes early for their appointment. Arriving early gives patients time to update their insurance information and fill out any necessary paperwork. Patients who need to change before their appointment should also leave enough time to switch out of what they are wearing and into loose-fitting clothes. If patients are unsure of how early they need to arrive, they can ask when scheduling their appointment. Please feel free to print and fill out our patient forms prior to coming in for your appointment. This will save time, and ensure you get the treatment you need as soon as possible.
Is a Prescription Needed for a Physical Rehab Appointment?
Patients don’t need to have a prescription from a medical doctor before they schedule an appointment. Chiropractors are qualified to assess injuries, evaluate patients, and determine whether physical rehabilitation is appropriate for a particular patient. If it is appropriate, chiropractors are also able to recommend the best kind of rehabilitation for a patient’s particular condition.
Some patients, however, may want to get a prescription from their medical doctor ahead of time so that their physical rehabilitation appointment is covered by their health insurance. Many insurance plans cover physical rehabilitation, but some limit to coverage that’s deemed necessary by a medical doctor. Patients can find out what coverages their plan provides and what requirements it has by contacting their insurer. We are more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have regarding your eligibility for Physical Rehabilitation.
