Frequently Asked Questions

Is a Physician's referral required to be seen?

The answer is No. North Carolina is a "Direct Access" state, which means that you do not need a Physician referral in order to have Physical Therapy. Doctors of Physical Therapy are trained to be first line health care professionals, and can refer you to the appropriate health professional if Physical Therapy is not appropriate for your condition. 


What should I wear for a Physical Therapy Session?

Comfortable athletic attire is your best option. Physical Therapy is a combination of hands on Manual Techniques as well as Therapeutic Exercises and Activities. Access to the area of concern may be necessary for manual techniques or dry needling, so moveable articles of clothing is preferable.


Is Physical Therapy only for when I am in pain?

Absolutely not! Taking a preventive approach is the best way to enhance your health. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy can perform a full wellness check for your entire body, and identify potential impairments that could lead to pain in the future. Preventing injuries and maintaining optimal body health is the key to performing the activities you love. Schedule a wellness check up and our Doctors of Physical Therapy will devise a health plan that fits your needs.


I've had Physical Therapy in the past, and it wasn't really helpful. How is this different?

Like all  professions, Physical Therapist quality varies. The key is to find someone with whom you can build a good rapport, and who you trust has your best interest in mind.

At Move It Physical Therapy, we strive to provide you with the best, high quality, evidence-based treatments. Our model allows us to spend the entire session with you alone. The quality and level of patient care you will receive exceed that found in other clinics, and the results will speak for themselves.


I have Medicare as my Primary Insurance, can I be seen by Move It Physical Therapy?

Medicare does not allow its beneficiaries to be seen for medically necessary services at Out-of-Network facilities. This means that you may not be seen by Move It Physical Therapy for treatment that Medicare considers medically necessary.

However, if you are interested in enhancing your overall health, prevention is key! You may schedule a Wellness visit, and a Doctor of Physical Therapy will perform a thorough evaluation and create an Individualized plan tailored to your health goals. Wellness visits are not considered medically necessary, and are therefore allowed at Out-of-Network facilities for Medicare beneficiaries. 

We understand this can is very frustrating, but unfortunately the only way to change this is to contact your legislator.
