Frequently Asked Questions
There are often many questions patients have when coming to receive physical therapy. These are just a few — please know you can always contact us with questions.
What can I expect coming to physical therapy for the first time?
Our clients can expect to begin treatment after an evaluation on day one. Your APT therapist will get to know you and your medical history by asking you some questions about your current and past pain complaints, the causes, how it is impacting your daily life, what your goals are, what medications you take, etc. Your physical therapist will perform an objective evaluation which may include palpation (touching where the pain is on your body), the range of motion, testing muscle balance, and may include other types of screening depending on what body part is affected and its severity. All of this informs the PT on what course to take tailored to your wants, needs, and goals. The important thing is to remember your PT is working with you to come up with a treatment plan to get you better, so that takes your input.
Do I have to have a doctor’s referral?
No. Louisiana is a direct access state. You can come into Acadiana Physical Therapy without a doctor’s referral.
How long are physical therapy appointments?
Your plan is customized, so your appointment time can vary from 45-75 minutes. Plan on at least an hour and a half for your first PT appointment to give time for both a detailed evaluation and an initial treatment session. Ask your Acadiana Physical Therapy specialist for a time frame for subsequent appointments.
What should I wear?
Do you accept insurance and if so which kinds?
Do I take anything with me?
There are forms you can download and fill out from our website. Here is a link. If you cannot do that before you come in, please come in 20 minutes before your first appointment, we can take care of that when you come in.
If your insurance is covering your physical therapy treatment, bring your insurance card. If you are seeing us via Workers’ Compensation, bring your claim number and the phone number or email of your caseworker.
I don’t have insurance — can I come to Acadiana Physical Therapy anyway?
What is Louisiana’s concussion law?
In 2011, the Louisiana Legislature passed the Louisiana Youth Concussion Act (Act #314). Its goal is to prevent further devastating neurological injuries to the kids in Louisiana who play sports. Acadiana Physical Therapy’s athletic trainers and physical therapists, in conjunction with physicians, play a crucial role in ensuring that athletes who have had a concussion are properly cleared through the “Return to Play” protocol.
