What is FYZICAL?
FYZICAL is a physical therapy franchise leading the charge to transform healthcare from one of “sick care” to “well care” by providing services focused on quality outcomes, total well-being, and prevention.
We use the latest state of the art technology to assess balance and have a safety overhead system throughout the gym to ensure safety of our patients while challenging their sense of balance. Our physical therapists are highly trained to assess vestibular dysfunctions and provide effective treatment.
How do I know if I need this kind of therapy?
We provide skilled physical therapy services to those who are at risk for falls or have fallen before, are concerned about their balance function, and/or have vertigo. We can screen you for fall risk during your initial evaluation if you are unsure.
Do you treat my particular condition?
We treat a variety of conditions and diagnoses. However, if you have specific questions regarding your condition and the availability of services, please contact our office at (864) 834-4995. Our staff will be happy to answer any concerns or questions you may have.
How can physical therapy help me with my balance issues and/or vertigo?
Studies show that balance, flexibility, and strength training improve mobility and reduce the risk of falling. Our balance programs focus on strength, endurance, motion, gait training and coordination for safe walking and preventing falls. If you need the assistance of a cane or walker, FYZICAL therapists will match you with the appropriate device and provide training for safety. Our goal, however, is to help you improve your balance so that you will no longer need a device!
At FYZICAL, our therapists realize how important balance and walking is for independent living, as well as for work activities, exercise, sports and enjoying life in general.
What do I need to bring on my first visit?
You will need to bring a photo ID, insurance card, list of medications, and a completed Client Health Questionnaire.
What does an initial evaluation entail?
We recommend doing the CDP (Computerized Dynamic Posturography) first to assess the whole balance function which includes your somatosensory, visual, and vestibular systems. After that, we do a thorough initial evaluation to assess your balance and walking ability. At the conclusion, we discuss an individualized program that is best for you based on all the information we gathered from the assessment.
What is the typical amount of visits for balance retraining?
There are many factors that determine the number of visits a patient needs to regain optimum health, but typically you can expect 8-12 visits per patient on average.
How often would I have to come in?
We recommend coming in 2-3 times per week for optimum progress.
How long would treatments last?
Initial evaluation and physical therapy sessions last for 40 minutes.
Is balance therapy covered by Insurance?
As a general rule of thumb, most balance therapy is reimbursable by insurance.
Are your Massage Therapists licensed?
Our Massage Therapists are fully licensed and have completed, beyond their specific field of study, several specialty certifications. A difference you will notice.
What should I wear to my appointment?
You should wear comfortable clothing that will allow for freedom of movement, and that will allow the therapist to manipulate the injured area.
What do I need to do if I need to cancel an appointment?
Please contact our office at least 24 hours in advance to cancel an appointment. You can also leave a message on our voice mail if it is necessary to reach us after business hours.
