Our goal for Physical Therapy at Knoxville Spine & Sports is to restore mobility and increase stability to eliminate dysfunction in each patient.  We strive to return the patient to their previous level of function as quickly as possible and help the patient to become independent in order to maintain progress at home once they are discharged from physical therapy.

What to Expect On Your Visit?

At the first visit, each patient will receive a comprehensive evaluation to determine the cause of dysfunction resulting in decreased functional mobility.  The patient and physical therapist will develop a treatment plan that addresses the goals of the patient. The patient will be thoroughly explained to understand their diagnosis and the best course of treatment for their condition.  

Also, you will receive manual treatment if indicated on your first visit, and in most cases, you will be educated on a home exercise program to continue the recovery process at home before your next visit.  You will understand the recommended treatment frequency and duration that is typically required to restore optimal function for your injury.

Frequently Asked Questions about Physical Therapy

Do I Need a Doctor’s Referral for Physical Therapy?

In most cases, no, a physical therapist in Knoxville can evaluate and treat a patient for up to 30 days without a physician referral.  If you need treatment after 30 days, you will need to obtain a referral for continued care.

What Can I Expect at Each Session?

Each session is typically an hour-long of one-on-one treatment with a licensed physical therapist or physical therapy assistant.  Each patient’s session will be unique and tailored to address your problem usually comprising both manual therapy and therapeutic exercise. Our goal is to perform treatment that you cannot do at home and to continue to progress your home exercise program to facilitate your independence with the recovery process.

Am I Seeing a Different Physical Therapist Each Time I Come for Treatment?

We strive to provide continuity of care for each patient.  This means we try to schedule you with the same PT or PTA for each visit.  

How Much Does It Cost To Attend Physical Therapy?

This depends on each person’s insurance plan to determine your out-of-pocket cost. We check your insurance benefits before your initial visit to determine your approximate cost, but we also recommend you contact your insurance to inquire about physical therapy benefits. Our cash rate for physical therapy is 150$ for your initial evaluation and 100$ for subsequent treatments.
