Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for my first visit?

To best prepare for your first visit, it is a good idea to arrive approximately 15 minutes early for your appointment.  This will allow time to fill out any remaining paperwork.  You should bring a copy of your insurance card if your insurance is covering the cost of therapy as well as photo identification and a copy of your prescription if provided by your doctor.  You will be asked to fill out intake forms concerning contact information, health background and HIPAA privacy forms.  These forms can be found here if you would like to fill them out before your first appointment.

What happens during my first visit?

The first visit is reserved for evaluation of your current condition.  The therapist will ask questions concerning your medical history, current condition, pain intensity, current limitations, goals for therapy and medications, tests or procedures related to your current condition.  Measurements will be taken as they relate to your current limitations.  With the information gathered, a plan will be developed with the input of you, your physician and your therapist concerning frequency and duration of therapy as well as how to best maximize your rehabilitation to get the best possible outcome.

How long do therapy sessions typically last?

Therapy sessions typically last between 30 and 60 minutes, but are variable depending on each patients' specific needs.

Who will see me for my therapy sessions?

You will be seen by one of our licensed, highly-trained therapists for the evaluation and for subsequent visits.  At ARC Therapy, you and your therapist will agree on a specific plan of care and work together to achieve each of your goals.  Instead of seeing a different therapist each visit, we promote development of a one-on-one relationship between the patient and the therapist who best knows your current condition.

How should I dress for my therapy sessions? (Physical and Occupational/Hand Therapy)

You should attempt to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing in which you can expose the body part to be treated if necessary.  Often times athletic shorts and t-shirts or tank tops are most comfortable for the treatments and exercises performed during each of the sessions.

Will insurance cover my therapy sessions?

In many cases health insurance will pay for all or part of your therapy sessions.  If you have any concerns regarding health insurance coverage or whether or not your insurance plan is accepted at ARC please contact us at (805) 434-4885 for further information.
