What happens during my first visit?
During your first visit, you can expect the following:
- Arrive at your appointment 15 minutes early to complete your paperwork.
- You will need to bring your prescription for therapy if your insurance requires a physician’s prescription.
- You will also need to have your insurance card so that we can make a copy.
- You will be seen for the initial evaluation and recommended therapy.
- The therapist will then perform the objective evaluation and develop a treatment plan to address the problems you are experiencing. The plan is created with input from you, your therapist, and your doctor/healthcare provider.
What do I need to bring with me?
Make sure you bring the therapy referral provided to you by your doctor (if required by your insurance company) and your payment information.
- If your insurance is covering the cost of physical therapy, bring your insurance card.
- If you are covered by Workers’ Compensation, bring your claim number and your case manager’s contact information.
- If you are covered by auto insurance or an attorney lien, make sure you bring this information.
How should I dress?
You should wear loose-fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear or bring shorts. For a shoulder or elbow problem, a tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose-fitting shirt and pants, again, so we can perform a thorough examination.
How long will each treatment last?
Depending on your individual needs, physical therapy or occupational therapy treatment sessions typically last 30 minutes to one hour. The initial visit usually takes a minimum of 45 minutes.
How many visits will I need?
This is highly variable. You may need one visit, or you may need months of care. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated on a regular basis, and when you see your doctor, we will provide your doctor with a progress report.
Colorado In Motion
Why did you sell the business?
Actually, Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists and Harmony Hand have come together and expanded to better serve your needs! In May 2015, we officially merged to form Colorado In Motion. This decision was influenced by our desire to offer our patients a more comprehensive list of services with therapists you know and trust.
Will your services be different at all?
The only difference in service you should notice is the expansion of services offered! All of our current patients will still be seeing the same therapist, most likely at the same convenient location. As our new name indicates, our primary goal is to keep you moving and enjoying the amazing Colorado outdoors!
Why does my invoice say Colorado Physical Therapy?
As we’ve mentioned, Harmony Hand has merged with Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists to create a more comprehensive brand, Colorado In Motion. During the transition period, we have taken on the Colorado Physical Therapy Tax ID number and are currently using this billing system. Our goal is to be fully transitioned to Colorado In Motion by the start of 2016.
We hope that we’ve answered all of your questions and addressed all of your concerns, but if you have any further questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us! Our main priority is to get you moving again, but we also know how important it is to get all of the facts before making any decisions about your health and wellness. That’s why we’ve set out to provide you with the information you need!
