What should I expect during a physical therapy visit?
You should expect top-notch 1:1 care. We cater to your goals, whether it is to jump without knee pain or not be limited by your back, twirling your daughter in the living room. We take a hands-on customized approach to getting you back to enjoying movement without physical limitations, and without pain medications, injections, or surgeries. Your doctor of physical therapy will get a thorough understanding of your physical mobility priorities, primary hinderances, and engineer a plan to help you achieve your physical goals in as few visits as possible, saving you money and time. We incorporate mobility work, sometimes with techniques most people recognize as "adjustments," progress stability activity, and hone strengthening exercises to help you return to the physical art form that brings you joy.
What should I expect during a performance-specific conditioning visit?
You should expect top-notch 1:1 physical training, focused on your personal performance goals. Your doctor of physical therapy will work directly with you to construct a training program to achieve your physical goals, whether it is to prevent the your previous nagging hip pain from returning, or improving core strength to better spin and jump, for example.
Do I need a prescription for physical therapy?
No, you enjoy the ability to seek care directly from a physical therapist, without first seeing a physician! This means you get better, faster, saving time and money! If your doctor of physical therapy determines a referral to a physician or for an X-Ray/MRI is necessary, she will make this recommendation.
Do you only treat performing artists?
No, we specialize in treating dancers, figure skaters, and aerial artists of all levels. However, as long as your doctor of physical therapy determines she can help you and it is a good fit, we are more than happy to get you moving better! If she determines someone else may be able to better help, she will guide you to a great resource.
What areas of New Mexico and Texas do you serve?
We offer in-person patient care in Albuquerque, NM. We also offer virtual care throughout all of New Mexico and Texas!
What COVID-19 precautions are being taken?
We are complying with all state and federal guidelines for your safety and ours. We implement frequent hand washing, sanitize equipment after each use, and perform daily employee wellness checks. Inherent in our one-on-one care, we also minimize physical contact with others.
How does virtual care work?
If you choose to be treated virtually, you will be provided a link to access during the video session on your smart device. Your therapist will ask you questions to get a thorough understanding of your movement concerns and goals. She will ask you to perform certain movements in order to help best determine your treatment plan, and guide you through an exercise program to help you return to the movement that brings you joy.
