Physical Therapy

What happens during a visit?

Every visit is different but at the first visit we will discuss your concerns and goals, do a thorough examination of your posture, function, strength and range of motion. We may also do a pelvic floor examination vaginally or rectally with your consent.

 
Does treatment change depending on my condition? Can’t I just do kegels at home?

No treatment is the same because no 2 people are exactly the same. Kegels may be a part of your treatment but it is important we evaluate your needs in order to prescribe the appropriate amount of kegels or a completely different treatment plan that would help you meet your goals.

 

Can I avoid surgery with PT?  I was told I needed surgery, can PT help me?

Short answer is it depends. In most cases, physical therapy is very beneficial and many of our patients decide not to have surgery.  Those that do end up having surgery are happy that their symptoms improved and they are more knowledgeable and physically prepared for surgery resulting in more optimal outcomes.

 

How many visits do I need? How long til I see changes?

This depends on your condition. Many patients notice changes after a single appointment and others may see changes after 2-3 appointments.

 

Do I need a referral from a doctor?

Currently in Texas, you do not need a referral for physical therapy for the first 10 business days. As a courtesy to you, we will request a referral from your doctor, midwife, nurse practitioner, or chiropractor after the 1st appointment.

 
Do you take insurance?

No, we do not take insurance but can provide you with a detailed receipt in order to request reimbursement from your insurance provider.

Do you offer Home Visits? 
 

Yes, we offer home visits in McKinney, Allen, Frisco, Princeton, Prosper, Anna, Melissa, Van Alstyne, Sherman and surrounding areas. Contact us to find out if we can come to your home.

Health and Wellness Coaching

Do you offer Home Visits? 
 

We do not offer home visits for health and wellness coaching but we do offer telehealth visits if you prefer to remain at home, schedule on your lunch break, or avoid the hassle of travel. 

Why would I see a health coach instead of my doctor or nurse practitioner?
 

Health coaches are not able to prescribe medications or diagnose medical issues. Health and wellness coaches do listen thoroughly to you put into practice recommendations made by your medical team such as adding exercise to your routine to reduce blood pressure. You can work with a health and wellness coach even if you don't have a serious health concern. 

How many visits will I need?
 

The number of visits can vary greatly depending on your goals. Visits are 30 to 60 minutes each depending on your needs.

Are you certified?

Yes! Ann completed a 6-month long training program to achieve her Certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching through Health Coach Institute. 

Yoga

What if I've never done yoga?

That's okay! All skill levels are welcome. Yoga is great for beginners and seasoned experts because everyone's practice is there own and you're not competing against anyone else. Tory gives plenty of support through demonstration, cues if desired, and straps and blocks to make poses easier.  Everyone in prenatal and postpartum yoga is adjusting to a changing body so you're in good company if things feel just a bit off. 

What do I bring/wear to class?

Wear comfortable clothing that you can easily move in. Many wear leggings but shorts or loose pants work great with a top that is either fitted or you can tuck into your pants.  Bring water and a yoga mat. Towels, extra mats, blocks and straps are available for use.   If you are bringing a baby, please bring a blanket or mat for them to lay on during parts of class. 

Nutrition Counseling

What is your training?

DeAndrea has completed the Dietician program at Texas Woman's University before obtaining a Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics with an emphasis on Nutrition and Physical Performance. 

How many visits will I need?

The number of visits can vary greatly depending on your goals. Visits are 30 to 90 minutes each depending on your needs.
