  • Do you take insurance?
    Athletic Potential: Performance Physical Therapy, LLC is an out-of-network provider and operates as a cash based physical therapy practice. This means insurance is not accepted and all services are payed for up-front by the patient. The initial consultation, which may or may not include some testing, is a free service. All follow up services have a specified cash rate depending on the frequency and duration of your visits. You will be provided with an itemized receipt, called a super bill, to submit to your insurance for reimbursement based on your out-of-network benefits. One can easily determine their out-of-network physical therapy benefits by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Oftentimes, your insurance company will reimburse you for some if not all of your PT services especially if you have a PPO plan or health savings account (HSA).
  • How is out-of-network cash based PT a better choice than in-network insurance based PT?
    You have health insurance you pay for every month....so why should you choose an out-of-network provider? Put simply, Freedom. But, let's compare the two. Opting for Cash-Based PT over Insurance-Based PT provides significant benefits, such as personalized care with one-on-one sessions tailored to your specific needs and goals, leading to more effective and focused treatments. Unlike Insurance-Based PT, where treatments can be limited and dictated by insurance policies, Cash-Based PT offers the freedom to utilize the most effective treatment strategies without constraints, potentially accelerating recovery. Cash-Based PT allows for flexible scheduling and unlimited sessions, catering to your unique recovery timeline, even for long-term or post-surgery rehabilitation. Direct access to your therapist for support enhances the personalized care experience, ensuring you have the guidance you need when you need it. In contrast, Insurance-Based PT may involve less therapist interaction and treatments driven by insurance limitations, possibly impacting the quality and effectiveness of care. Session limits and restricted treatment options can further hinder progress, leaving you without support once coverage ends. Overall, Cash-Based PT ensures a more personalized, unrestricted, and effective physical therapy experience, ideal for those prioritizing quality care and efficient recovery.
  • Why out-of-network?
    Choosing an out-of-network provider allows for a higher standard of care, unfettered by the constraints of the traditional insurance model. This approach ensures you receive the most efficient and personalized treatment possible. Unlike in-network services, where treatment may be limited to specific regions or dictated by insurance guidelines, out-of-network care offers the flexibility to address multiple areas of concern in a single session. It also enables the integration of sports preparation training, ensuring you're in peak condition for your return to activity. This holistic and unrestricted approach to treatment ensures optimal outcomes tailored to your specific needs.
  • Where are you located and who do you work with?
    My practice is located inside the country's leading baseball development center, Driveline Baseball. You'll be rehabbing in the same facility that produces some of the best athletes in Major League Baseball. While this facility is specifically designed to optimize baseball player development, athletes of all ages and sports are welcome and will find benefit in the amenities provided by being in this training center.
  • What approach to treatment do you take? Do you offer services like cupping, dry needling, etc.?
    My treatment philosophy centers on a movement-based approach, underscored by the consistent positive outcomes of therapeutic exercise programs in research. Currently, I don't offer modalities like cupping, scraping, or dry needling, as the evidence supporting their effectiveness is limited and often not superior to the interventions commonly employed in physical therapy. My practice might adapt to include these services if future research supports their efficacy. While manual techniques may be used selectively for enhancing range of motion, traditional manual therapy, including massages, is not a primary component of my treatment strategy. The cornerstone of recovery in my clinic is active engagement in a tailored exercise regimen designed to address your specific needs and goals, ensuring a return to your desired activities through dedicated effort and guidance.
  • What should I bring to my first appointment?
    ​Thank you for trusting me to guide you along the road to recovery. Please take the time to fill out the patient forms provided to you on your patient portal prior to your first appointment. If you have been provided any orthotic bracing or ambulation assistance (crutches, etc.), please be sure to bring it with you. You will want to wear comfortable clothing you can move in, like gym clothes. If provided to you by your surgical team, a rehab protocol for your specific surgery is always helpful for understanding any variances in your surgeons approach.
  • What happens once I finish PT?
    Upon completing your rehabilitation, you have the option to either conclude our sessions or to further enhance your athletic performance through ongoing high-performance training. This option includes regular monitoring of the previously injured area to maintain its resilience. Additionally, I provide online remote training services, allowing me to continue our collaboration and support your athletic development remotely, ensuring you remain on track towards achieving your performance goals.
