We answered the questions that were curious.

How much is a session if I don't use or have insurance?

What do I wear to physical therapy?

Comfortable attire should be worn that allows the therapist to access the body part in need.

What are your hours of operation?

Appointments are taken Monday-Friday from 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM. Special case appointments can be made by arrangement.

How long are the physical therapy sessions?

Your first physical therapy session will consist of a thorough history and examination of your physical condition. You will more than likely also be given some treatment with remaining time and potential home exercises to begin doing on your own.

Is physical therapy painful? What can I expect?

Pain is not an expectation of physical therapy. However, there are certain techniques that may potentially increase discomfort, but the discomfort should not be lasting. To assess your movement dysfunction, you may be asked to move in certain ways during your initial evaluation that increase your pain, but we will attempt to minimize your discomfort and movement that causes discomfort.

Do I need a doctor’s prescription or referral to be seen?

Colorado is a direct access state meaning you do not need a referral to see a specialist, however your insurance may require a doctor’s referral in order to reimburse for service. You can call the number on the back of your insurance card to find out your specific plan.

What should I expect on my first visit?

The typical session runs 45 minutes for physical therapy and 60 minutes for massage and pilates. During your visit, you will have one-on-one time with a therapist. Unlike many physio therapy centers, Ashbaugh does not treat multiple patients at a time in an open room. Furthermore, all of our services are provided by licensed practitioners. We do not use aides at our clinic.

What should I bring to my first visit?

Your insurance card and your prescription/physical therapy orders from your doctor. If we will be billing through your auto or work comp. insurance, please have your claim number and insurance phone number with you.

If I am currently seeing a chiropractor etc for my physical problem, will this treatment interfere with what is already being done?

Your physical therapy treatment will not overlap what is already being done, but we will communicate with all concurrent providers to best utilize physical therapy services.

If I have a referral from a doctor, will you communicate with the doctor about treatment?

Your doctor will be sent an evaluation including an assessment, goals for therapy and plan of care. We will also send progress correspondence to your doctor upon follow-up visits.
