Have you been researching for the physical therapy in Northwest Arkansas?  Are you interested in knowing about the many applications and benefits of physical therapy?  To start with, Physical Therapy is administered by a Doctor of Physical Therapy or DPT. It is commonly used to treat chronic pain, sports and post-surgical rehabilitation, injuries from motor vehicle accidents, back and neck pain, vertigo, headache and general Orthopedic treatment for knee, shoulder, foot, ankle, hip and wrist injuries.  In short, if you live long enough and take part in life to any small degree, you will most likely be referred to a Physical Therapist at some point in time.

These professionals are often given credit for the patient’s return to normal life after potentially life changing surgeries and injuries. Each patient is taken through a thorough evaluation on their first visit, then a personalized plan of care is written to first address any discomfort, then a targeted and progressive exercise program is implemented to help restore movement, functionality and prevent further injury in the future. With such an important role in your recovery, doesn’t it make sense to consult with an expert in the field?  Our local expert, Dr. Zach Ball of Advanced Physical Therapy, has answered a few of the more typical questions below, but if you have a particular question, you can ask the expert yourself free of charge.

The state of Arkansas is considered a Direct Access State regarding Physical Therapy. Which means that a referral from a doctor is not necessary for a therapist to evaluate and treat a patient. However, there are certain insurance companies and policies that require a referral for treatment to be paid for by insurance. In those cases, we will do the evaluation first and then we will reach out to your doctor to get the appropriate paperwork.

In addition, Advanced Physical Therapy offers FREE consultation visits where you can get evaluated by one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy and find out if Physical Therapy treatment is appropriate for you.
