Frequently Asked Questions


Initial Evaluation

What to expect?

  • Review of patient history including symptoms, concerns and goals of treatment
  • Review of x-ray and associated x-ray measurements
  • Postural assessment
  • Assessment of overall strength, range of motion, asymmetries, muscular tension and functional movement patterns
  • Bracing recommendations if necessary
  • Plan of care recommendations based on the evaluation findings
  • Learn the initial exercises you can start doing at home

How to prepare?

  • Bring (or send in advance) a full spine x-ray (back/front view and side view if you have it)
  • Referral from a Physician if you have one (NJ is a direct access state so you can see a Physical Therapist without a referral/prescription for up to 30 days)
  • Wear comfortable, tight fitting clothing and women should wear a sport bra or bikini top for full visualization of the spine, rib cage and shoulder blades.

Follow Ups

All follow-up treatments are one-on-one with an Advanced Certified Schroth Therapist. All treatments are unique to each individual patient as no two patient’s curves are the same.

The amount of follow up treatment varies depending on many factors such as pain, age, risk of curve progression, body awareness and learning retention however a recommendation for treatment frequency and duration will be discussed at the end of your initial evaluation. The standard recommendation is for 6 to 10 follow-up sessions to be able to perform all exercises properly at home.


Insurance

At this time we do not accept insurance. This allows us to sustain the 1:1 treatment model to give you the care you deserve rather than spending time dealing with insurance companies.

Upon request patients will be provided with a receipt with all appropriate documentation needed to submit to their insurance companies for reimbursement. The amount you receive is completely dependent on your individual plan however if you have out-of-network benefits covering outpatient physical therapy you should be eligible for reimbursement.
