Frequently Asked Questions
We want to make sure that you get all your questions answered. Here are the questions we receive most often.
What will the therapy cost? Back to top
Most insurance companies pay all or part of physical therapy needs. We will contact your insurance company prior to your first visit to verify your coverage. Potomac Valley Sports Medicine maintains quality care at competitive rates.
Will the therapy hurt? Back to top
Our goal is to provide the best care to you with the least discomfort possible. However, it is normal to experience some increase in your symptoms or onset of muscle soreness as a result of starting a new exercise program.
How long will each treatment be? Back to top
It depends on the extent or involvement of your injury, but most treatments last between 45 and 60 minutes.
What should I wear to my appointment? Back to top
Wear loose, comfortable clothing/shoes that you would wear to a gym. Also, please make sure the injured body part is easily accessible. We have locker rooms if you need to shower and change clothes following your treatment session.
What ages of patients do you see? Back to top
We see orthopaedic conditions at any age. The age ranges from 5 - 95 years old. However, some pediatric cases are better in the hands of a pediatric therapist. Please call the office to inquire about certain pediatric diagnosis.
How do I cancel an appointment? Back to top
Simply call the office and let us know as soon as you need to cancel. If you can give the office a two-hour warning, it is much appreciated. There is a $25 no show fee that is applied if you do not come for your appointment.
Do I need a referral? Back to top
This is dependent on your insurance plan. Please call your insurance for more information.
