Frequently Asked Questions
What does mobile physical therapy mean?
ReThrive and its staff will provide our services in the comforts of your home or work. You do not need to come to a clinic, instead, we come to you.
If your home/work is located outside of the Scottsdale or Paradise Valley area, alternative arrangements can be made for location.
How long does physical therapy treatment take?
There is no one-size-fits-all protocol for physical therapy. The number of treatment sessions you’ll need depends on your injury/condition, overall health, and compliance with your plan of care. At the initial evaluation appointment, ReThrive will discuss with you your prognosis and plan of care.
Do I need a doctor’s prescription to do physical therapy?
In the state of Arizona, you can see a Physical Therapist for an examination, evaluation, and be treated by a PT without a prescription from a physician.
Does Rethrive take my insurance?
We are not contracted with any insurance companies, including Medicare. Physical Therapy clinics that take insurance typically schedule at least 2 to 4 patients per hour.
Patients are guided through exercises by assistants and often there is significant time devoted to passive modalities ReThrive provides one on one focused care, treating the individual without the constraints of health insurance. This allows us to optimize our time with the patient, without restrictions to focus solely on one body part, which, in turn, maximizes outcomes. Having a full hour of one on one care allows for improvements to be made at a faster rate. This allows for a more intensive single treatment session for a longer duration compared to the standard private practice clinical treatment session. This often means that you get better quicker.
If you do have insurance, upon request, ReThrive can provide you a receipt including the billing and diagnosis codes that can be submitted to your insurance for out of network reimbursement. The amount of reimbursement will vary with different carriers.
ReThrive does not submit your claim for reimbursement. If you would like to know the normal reimbursement rate for your specific insurance, call your insurance provider and ask about reimbursement for "out of network Physical Therapy" treatment.
What should I wear at my physical therapy session?
You should wear clothes that are comfortable and loose fitting with an elastic waistband that allow you to move without restrictions. If you are having problems with your legs (pain in the hip, knee or feet), make sure to have any shoes that you wear for daily activities or for running and walking.
