FAQs

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy is a medical profession committed to helping people move and function without pain or dysfunction.  In our setting we focus on musculoskeletal injuries but other physical therapist practice in hospitals treating strokes, vestibular conditions, amputees, and many more conditions.  

How do I schedule an appointment?

We have brought physical therapy in the 21st century.  For too long when people have called clinics they had to sit on hold, or spend an unnecessary amount of time answering questions that they will be asked again when they show up.  Our scheduler and intake is all done online from anywhere you would like.  Want to make an appointment at midnight?  No problem, just click the schedule here link in the bottom right corner.  Want to change an appointment?  No issue, follow the link in your email to manage all your appointments. When you make an appointment all your intake paperwork will show up in your email, fill it out when you please.  This also saves time when you come in as your therapist can review your paperwork before hand, not while you wait.

What education does a physical therapist have?

Physical therapist undergo 7 years of training and graduate at the end with a doctorate degree in Physical Therapy.  Furthermore both of our therapist have completed countless continuing education courses and are board certified in orthopedic rehab.  

Do I have to be injured to come in?

No!  It is much easier to avoid an injury than it is to treat one.  We can screen you and find areas that may predispose you to injury and help address those issues.  A few corrective exercises can go a long way to help you stay in peak form and continue to enjoy what you do pain free.

Do you accept insurance?

We currently accept Medicare, Tricare, and Medicaid.  We are working to secure contracts with all the major carriers and anticipate we will be cleared to accept insurance in late 2020. COVID-19 has slowed all contract processing and we will update this if we are approved sooner.  Our cash rates are very affordable and in some cases will actually be less expensive than utilizing insurance.  

Can I use my HSA/FSA?

Of course!  We accept all HSA/FSAs and would be happy to provide any necessary paperwork or receipts you may require. 

Do I need a referral? 

Colorado is what is known as a "Direct Access" state meaning that for most major insurances you do not need a referral to see a physical therapist.  Cash paying customers do not have to worry about this.  Call your insurance or leave us a message if you have questions about eligibility on this.  

What hours are you open?

We are open Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm.  To schedule you can click the "Schedule Here" button on the bottom left of all the screens on the website.

Where is the clinic located?

Our address is 12090 West 50th place, Wheat Ridge Colorado 80033.  We are located behind the CrossFit gym have our own parking lot past the big white box truck on the left.
