What is physical therapy?2019-08-31T00:54:37+00:00

Physical therapy is the process of developing, maintaining or restoring maximum movement (range of motion) and functional ability.

Why is physical therapy useful?2018-02-21T21:41:38+00:00

By restoring normal movement and a normal biomechanical motion, physical therapy can reduce pain and increase function allowing you to resume activities that may have been painful before.

What does a physical therapist do to restore motion and function?2019-08-02T21:11:03+00:00

A physical therapist may use, but is not limited to, manual therapy interventions including joint mobilizations and massage; therapeutic exercise and dry needling to facilitate strengthening and regaining range of motion; neuromuscular reeducation to assist in restoring proper movement patterns and biomechanics; and therapeutic modalities, including but not limited to ultrasound, electrical stimulation and iontophoresis.

What happens during my first physical therapy visit?2018-02-21T21:41:10+00:00

A highly trained and licensed physical therapist will evaluate your condition, including your medical history, pain levels and locations.  Your functional limitations will also be discussed. You physical therapist, in conjunction with you, will develop a treatment plan to get you back on the road to recovery.  As you are an integral part of this process, feedback from you during the evaluation and treatment is critical.  Physical therapy is a team effort between you and your therapist.

What do I need to wear to my visits?2018-02-21T21:41:01+00:00

Loose fitting clothes are optimal and will depend upon your injury. For example, if you have a shoulder problem, a t-shirt or tank top will work. For a knee problem, loose pants or shorts. We also provide shorts and gowns if you forget to bring loose fitting clothes.

Does physical therapy hurt?2018-02-21T21:40:53+00:00

Our philosophy at Atlas PT is “no pain, no pain”.  Unfortunately, sometimes there is discomfort.  We ask that you notify us immediately if there is pain or discomfort so we can modify the activity to keep you more comfortable.

Do You Accept All Insurance?2018-03-06T02:56:00+00:00

Atlas Physical Therapy accepts most major insurance plans. We are a participating provider in the Medicare program, but at this time do not participate in the Medicaid program. We accept most  Commercial Insurances, Workers’ Compensation and Auto Insurance. We are participating providers for most major group plans. Click here to see our growing list of insurance companies.

Physical therapy benefits are sometimes a separate benefit from your normal “office visit” copay. Some plans require only a copay while others require you to meet your deductible and then a certain amount of coinsurance until your out-of-pocket maximum has been met. Some plans require prior authorization or have a visit or dollar amount limitation placed on a plan year.

Please contact us if you need help in determining your insurance benefits.

We also offer affordable options for patients who choose to pay for services directly.

“They are warm and friendly professionals. Vicky does a great job getting you back to normal. I would recommend them highly.”

Aurelia Kearns

“Because of numerous surgeries over the last several years, I’ve had to go through many hours of physical therapy. I’ve found that Atlas Physical Therapy is one of the best, if not the best, clinic to go to. Vicky Bledsoe provides excellent service – from the time you make your first call for an appointment to the time that you ‘graduate’ from therapy.“If you want care above and beyond your expectations, Atlas PT is the place to receive it. I felt like an important brother in a large family. Most importantly, a lifetime of lower back pain is now manageable, and for the amount of arthritis I have, my pain is rarely noticeable. Thanks Vicki!”

Sam Riccobene

“I highly recommend Atlas Physical Therapy! I received the best possible therapy from Vicky. She is a consummate professional in everything she does.  Atlas Physical Therapy is a shining example of how health care is supposed to work. Kudos all the way around.”

“The staff at Atlas PT are friendly, down-to-Earth people. PT proceeds in a logical process and Vicky is a highly experienced PT who knows how to adjust therapy and communicate clearly to patients. She is an amazing multitasker! I actually looked forward to therapy because the people, both staff and patients, are enjoyable to be around!”

Pat McLarty

“Vicky is truly concerned about my health and doesn’t make me feel my issues are insignificant or bothersome.”
