Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Doctor's referral? How much will it cost?

A Doctor's referral is only needed if your insurance requires. You can find out your insurance benefits by calling the customer service number listed on the back of your insurance card.

How quickly can I get in to see a physical therapist?

Lakewood Physical Therapy strives to get you scheduled for your evaluation within 24 hours.

Will it hurt?

As you restore mobility your pain levels often fluctuate. This is a normal response to therapy treatment. Good communication with your therapist will help minimize any discomfort.

What do I wear?

Dress comfortably. We will supply shorts or gowns during your session if needed.

How long will my therapy sessions last?

Typically the first session will last for an hour. Each session thereafter will vary according to the treatment plan prescribed by your therapist.

How many sessions will I have?

Each patient’s diagnosis is different, so together with your referring physician, your therapist will develop a plan of care that is right for you. Your plan of care and number of visits will be determined during your first visit.
