Concierge Physical Therapy
What is Concierge Physical Therapy?
The term "concierge physical therapy" is used by Elevate Physical Therapy to describe treatments that are highly customized to meet each patient's needs. Our practice does not accept insurance due to treatment limitations, however we do offer a variety of payment plans that make our services more affordable to our patients. Our goal is to provide above and beyond care to our patients.
Patients often find that they need physical therapy after orthopedic injuries. This refers to injuries involving bones, ligaments, tendons, and related structures. Depending on the injury or condition, they can take days, weeks, or months to heal. Additionally, depending on the structure that was injured, tissues heal at varying rates.
During the healing process, it is common for pain to radiate to other parts of the body that were seemingly not affected. This is because adhesions, trigger points, and other problems can develop as each tissue type heals at its own pace and interferes with other, nearby tissues. Orthopedic physical therapy often involves a variety of treatment methodologies that are combined to address issues in a comprehensive manner.
Some treatment interventions used for orthopedic injuries will be familiar to those who have previously encountered physical therapy. Stretches, careful strength-enhancing exercises, and balance work are typically part of a physical recovery program. Other interventions, however, may be new to patients. One relatively new treatment is called trigger point dry needling, which involves inserting medicine-free (dry) needles through the skin into a muscle. This is different from acupuncture because it does not aim to alter "life force," but instead, works directly on the affected body part(s).
