All of our therapists have passed the National Physical Therapy Exam (NPTE) and have been licensed through the State of Wyoming.
For most insurance plans in Wyoming you are allowed to go directly to a Physical Therapist for 30 days. After this 1 month period your therapist will discuss with you further treatment options and if you will need to get a Prescription for physical therapy. Our office will help with this process as needed.
If you experience any set-backs or flare-ups please give us a call. We will discuss treatment options to help determine if you need to come in for more therapy or if you need to return to your doctor. We can also modify your home exercise program as needed.
Pain relief can be one of the primary goals for patients. Achieving this goal can be accomplished with many different Physical Therapy techniques and modalities. Manual Therapy or Manipulative Therapy is a hands-on technique often used to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability.
Some modalities including electrical stimulation, Trigger Point Dry needling, and heat/cold therapy can be used as well. Your PT will have you complete different exercises for pain relief and to start to recover range of motion, strength, and endurance. Some of these exercises can be painful.
For example, patients recovering range of motion after surgery may experience pain. Your PT will utilize a variety of techniques to help maximize your treatment goals. Communication is very important during therapy in case any changes to your Plan of Care need to take place.
