INSURANCE AND SELF-PAY PHYSICAL THERAPY OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE
We are in-network with most major insurance companies and also offer out-of-network benefits for others. However, we currently DO NOT take Medicare or Medicaid. We DO offer self-pay options for those without insurance, or those needing PT above and beyond what their insurance policy will cover.
Ready to begin the road to recovery? You can schedule a full evaluation where one of our therapists will take formal measurements, evaluate your posture, gait, flexibility, mobility, dynamic stability, analyze your soft tissue integrity, spinal alignment and movement quality. With this information we provide you with a diagnosis and a plan of care. Your therapist will educate you on the anatomy and pathology of your injury and how your plan of action addresses it to reach your goals and restore optimal function. You will receive treatment, as well as be given some home exercises to get started with.
This in-depth appointment gets you started with us and is required for insurance purposes as well. (This evaluation is also available as self-pay if you are not using insurance.)

FREE INJURY ASSESSMENT
Do you have pain? Not sure what is wrong or what to do for it? At Catalyst PT, we want to help you get back in action as soon as possible, but first, we need to know what kind of injury of you have.
A Catalyst therapist will listen to your description of symptoms, mechanism of injury, and any pertinent medical history. Then they will perform a brief (30 minutes or less) examination, derive a general diagnosis, inform and educate you on the problem, and help answer any questions you may have regarding the injury and the treatment for it. In most cases physical therapy is the appropriate next step, but if a physician or specialist consult is determined to be necessary, your therapist will provide you with a list of the most reputable and qualified doctors in the area for your specific injury.
**A free injury screen does not include any treatment.
COMMUNICATION WITH DOCTORS AND COACHES
Your physical therapist will maintain open communication with your physician to ensure the most efficient management and treatment plan possible. Your physician can expect to receive copies of your initial evaluation, re-evaluations, progress reports (for your follow-up appointments), and discharge evaluations. Upon client request, our team will also openly communicate with your team of coaches, personal trainers, or sport-specific coaches (hitting, pitching, or golf pro) to help ensure safe and efficient training throughout your recovery.
