Frequently Asked Questions

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapists manage and treat musculoskeletal system issues including, but not limited to, muscular dysfunction and pain, nerve impingements, and functional impairments. What sets BPT apart from the others is that we only schedule one patient per hour for each therapist. This allows the therapists to give their undivided attention to the patient. Treatment sessions are generally a combination of exercises and manual therapy. Most importantly we try to educate the patient on what they can do it home in terms of body mechanics, lifestyle adjustments and exercises.

What should I wear to my appointments?

Athletic clothing is preferable as you will be doing exercises and need to be able to move freely. Most importantly, wear something you are comfortable in. Closed toe shoes are required for the gym.

What should I expect in my first appointment?

The first appointment is known as an evaluation. It is important to have patient history completed prior to the appointment to ensure you receive the full time. If you have not finished your forms before your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete them. The therapist will sit down with you to discuss your diagnosis and treatment options. During your first appointment, your therapist will develop a plan of care which will be shared with your referring physician. You will also be sent home with a home excercise program.

How much will my Physical Therapy appointment cost?
