Q: How does a person get started or set up to begin taking physical therapy? Do I call you and make an appointment or does my doctor need to call to set up my appointment?

A: Your doctor needs to write you a prescription for Physical Therapy (PT). The doctor’s office or you can then call our office to schedule your appointment. On your first visit we will perform an evaluation to determine what problems you are having and how we need to resolve the problems. You should expect to spend about 1 hour on your first day. You can download and complete your paper work from home by accessing our website @ www.spencercountypt.com. Usually you attend PT 2 or 3 times per week for 3-4 weeks. Most insurance companies do not require a referral from your doctor.
