Service Descriptions

Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM)
Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM) regenerates healthy, soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.) and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or restriction of movement. The ASTYM technique has helped countless patients by restoring movement, eliminating pain and giving them back their lives. ASTYM is commonly used to treat tendinosis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, lateral epicondylitis, and many other upper and lower extremity disorders. For more information, visit www.ASTYM.com.
Functional Dry Needling
Functional Dry Needling is a treatment technique that utilizes thin, solid filament needles to deactivate and desensitize trigger points in muscles. Myofascial trigger points are knots in muscles that can contribute to pain, decreased flexibility and decreased muscle function. Dry needling is the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal systems based on pain patterns, muscular dysfunction and loss of function. It is used to treat injured muscle (strains/tears) or overused or over-trained muscles (the result of fitness/exercise, repetitive motions), resulting in pain and weakness. Prime candidates for functional dry needling include individuals with tendonitis who have a muscular injury that has not improved, runners, cyclists, those training for fitness, and industrial athletes performing repetitive movements.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits. VRT can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and the unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides) associated with Ménière’s disease, labyrinthitis, and vestibular neuritis. Even individuals with long-term unresolved inner ear disorders who have undergone a period of medical management with little or no success may benefit. VRT can also help people with an acute or abrupt loss of vestibular function following surgery for vestibular problems. – See more at: http://vestibular.org

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy combines the science of healing with the art of caring using a hands-on approach to healthcare. Physical therapists are highly educated, licensed health care professionals who help patients improve or restore mobility, reduce pain, avoid the need for surgery and the long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects. Physical therapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it to improve your function during your everyday life. While every patient's pain is unique, the physical therapist may use various techniques to decrease your pain. As your pain decreases, the therapist will progress stretching and strengthening exercises specific to your needs.
What education requirements do your therapists possess?
All Physical Therapists must graduate from an Accredited Physical Therapy Program at the University level. As a graduate, Physical Therapists must pass a National State Board Licensure Examination and possess an active state license for the state which they will practice in. Therapists are required by the State Board of Professional Regulation to maintain and increase their level of education through continuing education courses each year. At HPRC, we encourage all of our professional staff to be active members in our professional organization, The American Physical Therapy Association.
Why should I choose physical therapy?
In physical therapy, the goals should be to resolve your problem, not just temporarily relieve it. Although medication and other forms of treatment can be helpful in relieving symptoms, physical therapy produces a long-term result by treating the source of pain. The physician may opt to utilize medication in conjunction with physical therapy depending on your diagnosis. Additionally, physical therapy, unlike some other forms of treatment is not designed to go on as a maintenance program because we look for resolution.
What is my responsibility in physical therapy?
Your recovery is greatly dependent upon your compliance with your physical therapy program. Please help us to help YOU! We can provide you with the tools to recover, but we ask that all patients and clients cooperate by following through with their home exercise programs and instructions. In keeping your appointments, please arrive for treatment sessions a few minutes early so you are prepared. Late arrival may affect not only your 1-on-1 time with the therapist, but that of other patients in the clinic. Actively participate in the discussion to determine visit frequency and work in partnership with the physical therapist to achieve your treatment goals. Failure to show for an appointment and not calling to cancel the visit may result in a fee and is disruptive to the physical therapist’s schedule, but most importantly will interrupt your progression towards recovery. Emergencies happen and may prevent you from attending, calling to notify your physical therapist as soon as possible will help with making appointments available for others who may be waiting for an appointment so we ask for as much notice as possible. It is important to review the facility’s financial and cancellation policy prior to the start of treatment. If you plan to discontinue therapy or change the frequency of treatment because of personal or financial considerations, please discuss this with your physical therapist.
Do I need a prescription?
Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina are all Direct Access States which means a prescription from your doctor is not necessary for you to be seen by a Physical therapist. However, most insurance companies require you have a prescription from your referring doctor. This may be a specialist or a primary care physician.
Will my insurance pay for physical therapy?
Every insurance plan varies in its coverage of physical therapy services. We will be happy in assisting you with this or you can call your insurance carrier directly to check on your plan’s coverage. We currently provide services to many common insurance companies and our list of carriers continues to grow.
How do I arrange an appointment?
If your physician gives you a referral to physical therapy, simply call our office for an appointment. Our office staff will get all the necessary information from you and assist you with an appointment. To expedite the process, a copy of our patient intake form is listed on our web site. This will greatly minimize any delays in your Physical Therapy treatment which might be related to incomplete or inaccurate insurance, personal, or billing information.
What should I bring with me?
For your first visit you will need your insurance card and any paperwork that was sent to you that needed to be filled out. If you have any operative reports, MRI or X-ray results you may bring those as well. Additionally, if you are utilizing any type of brace, splint, or crutches, those should come with you. Please also bring a complete list of medications you are taking, these are needed for your patient records. Medication name, dosage and reason you are taking it is helpful. It is important your therapist have this information in order to modify, defer or add appropriate treatment techniques which may be affected by certain medications.
What is a physical therapy evaluation?
On your first visit, the physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation lasting approximately 30-60 minutes. Your physical therapist will begin by asking you questions about your health and about the specific condition for which you are seeing the physical therapist. Detailed information about you and your condition will help the physical therapist determine whether you are likely to benefit from physical therapy and which treatments are most likely to help you.

Depending on your symptoms and condition, the physical therapist might evaluate your strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, posture, blood pressure, heart and respiration rates. Your physical therapist might use his or her hands to examine or "palpate" the affected area or to perform a detailed examination of the mobility of your joints, muscles and other tissues. Your physical therapist also might evaluate how you walk (gait), how you get up from a lying position or get in and out of a chair (functional activities), or how you use your body for certain activities, such as bending and lifting (body mechanics). They perform these tests and measures to gain a more specific understanding of your condition. Your physical therapist will use the information obtained from your evaluation to formulate a clinical judgment of your prognosis and appropriate treatment intervention. A rehabilitation program will be developed based upon the problems identified and the individual patient’s personal goals.
What types of interventions may I receive?
The interventions you receive will depend on what the physical therapist finds in the evaluation. Most physical therapy plans of care will include therapeutic exercise and functional training in sport, work, or home related tasks. Other interventions might include manual therapy techniques, orthotics, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, low-level laser therapy, biomechanical and postural reeducation, and ergonomic analysis.
What should I wear?
You should wear comfortable clothes that are not restrictive to movement. We can provide you with a patient gown to expose appropriate body parts; however, you may want to wear something that allows us to view that part without having to change (example: If you are coming in for a knee problem you may want to wear shorts or bring a pair with you to change into.)
How long will I need therapy and how often will I need to come to P.T.?
That depends on many factors. Many times your doctor will recommend how often or how long you should receive physical therapy, but mostly your therapist will predict how often and how long you may need P.T. based on the findings at your initial evaluation.
How long will each session last?
This will vary on a case by case basis. We understand that your time is valuable. We will make every effort to maximize the use of your time while you are at physical therapy. On average, follow-up visits range from 30 – 45 minutes and are usually no greater than 1 hour.
Will my therapist communicate with my MD regarding my treatment/progress?
YES! Your physician will receive a copy of your initial evaluation and plan of care within 24 hours of your 1st visit. As indicated, weekly or monthly reports will also be sent to your doctor. Occasionally, phone calls are also utilized to communicate any changes, problems or questions that may arise.
Can my spouse/significant other/caregiver come with me to P.T.?
It would be very appropriate for you to bring someone that might be assisting you at home in any way. With a family member, significant other or caregiver your therapist will be better able to assist you with a comprehensive home program or teach someone else how to better help you at home in your own environment.
Is parking an issue at your facility?
Parking will vary at each of our facilities. It is best to allow a few extra minutes depending on the time of day. Some of our facilities have valet parking available, free of charge. Please contact the individual facilities for more information.
