The benefits of A Step Ahead Physical Therapy are:
- One on One Attention
- Personalized Care with a private practice
- High Quality Care
- 30+ years experience
- YOU HAVE A CHOICE!
You have the freedom to choose your own physical therapist. Keep in mind that your insurance policy may require a visit to the primary care physician first or limit your access to only preferred providers.
Your physician may refer you for physical therapy that is to be provided in his or her office or to a facility in which he or she has a financial interest. If either situation is the case, insist that your physical therapy be provided by a licensed physical therapist.
More About Physical Therapists
Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who diagnose and treat people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives.
PTs must have a graduate degree from an accredited physical therapy program before taking the national licensure examination. The minimum educational requirement is a master's degree, yet most educational programs now offer the doctor of physical therapy (DPT) degree.
Physical therapists practice in hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities, homes, education or research centers, schools, hospices, corporate or industrial health centers, athletic facilities, and other settings.
