How do I get started?

At Cypress Therapy Center, we’ve made it very easy for you to get started. Typically, we can see you within 24 hours of your call, and that call is the first step in getting you back on the road to recovery.

What should I expect on my first visit?

Upon arrival at our office, you will meet your personal licensed therapist and certified aide, both of which you will work closely with throughout your entire recovery process. You will be asked to fill out some basic paperwork (don’t forget to bring in your prescription for therapy and any written information – operative reports, X-ray and/or MRI results – you have about your injury). The therapist will then ask you a series of questions about your past and present medical conditions, before performing a comprehensive evaluation of your muscles, joints, nerves, tendons, and ligaments including range of motion, strength and functional testing. Based on your physician’s diagnosis, our prognosis, and your personal goals, an individual treatment plan will be devised. You will receive treatment and home exercises on your first visit. Future appointments will also be scheduled.

What types of treatments do you perform?

We perform various types of treatments, and will customize a program combining the best treatments geared toward your particular injury. The types of treatments we do include soft tissue massage, deep tissue massage, joint mobilization, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, iontophoresis, phonophoresis, stretching, therapeutic exercises, and ice. The treatment program will vary based on your injury, and will be performed in a private treatment room as well as a gym setting using a variety of athletic and rehabilitation equipment.

Can Physical Therapy help with early Alzheimers intervention?

Clinical studies have documented that physical therapy services begun during the early stage of the disease process retard the progression of symptoms. Based on this overwhelming clinical evidence, in January of 2002, Medicare approved coverage for physical therapy services for early intervention. This program is a multidisciplinary approach utilizing both a physical therapist and an MSW.

I was just recently diagnosed with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease); will pulmonary rehab services benefit me?

The pulmonary rehab program offered by Cypress Therapy Center is a three tier program that addresses not only the individualized needs of those patients that have advanced pulmonary disease but also the newly diagnosed respiratory patient and patients with moderate pulmonary disease.

What happens when I complete my therapy? Are there any low cost maintenance programs I may enroll in to continue my exercise regime?

Yes, Cypress Therapy Center offers a maintenance program to the graduates of our therapy programs called Group Exercise Monitored for Seniors (GEMS). This group meets twice a week at the clinic.  For an extremely low monthly fee, you and a significant other, have access to the clinics equipment and may participate in this self-directed, self-monitored exercise program. This is the perfect follow-up to the therapy your physician prescribed for you.  Active participation in this program is encouraged, and will insure that you maintain the functional level of independence you were able to achieve during your prescribed treatments.

How often will I need to attend physical therapy?

Most patients are treated two to three times per week. The total duration of therapy will depend on the severity of your injury. The more committed you are to your recovery (meaning, you regularly attend your PT sessions), the more likely you are to recover faster. We try to set up permanent appointment times for you to help make scheduling consistent, and we offer early morning and evening appointments in order to enable you to fit PT or OT into your busy schedule.

How long will each appointment take?

Each visit is approximately one hour in duration. During each visit, you will receive manual treatment (deep tissue massage, joint mobilization, electric stimulation or other forms of specialized treatment for your injury), and/or strengthening the injured area via specific exercises and stretches.

Is there anything I can do at home to help speed the recovery process along?

Absolutely. We will customize a home treatment programcomprised of advice on how to reduce your pain, exercises and stretches – for you so that you can continue your rehabilitation process in between physical therapy sessions. It is essential that you follow the instructions and perform the home exercises regularly to control your symptoms and speed up recovery.

Do you know my doctor?

We are always in close communication with your doctor through frequent progress letters and phone calls. We both share the same goal of helping you recover as quickly as possible, thus, work as a team to make sure that this happens.

How much will each visit cost me?

Cypress Therapy Center has in-house billing service, designed to keep our services affordable. Their purpose is to minimize your out-of-pocket expense and ensure your health insurance covers as much of your therapy treatments as possible. They take care of health insurance verification and worker’s compensation authorization at no additional cost to the patient. Your out-of-pocket expense will vary depending on your insurance policy. Prescribed physical/occupational therapy is typically coveredat least partiallyby most insurance companies. Depending on your insurance policy, you may or may not have a co-payment for each visit.
