How can physical therapy be "gymnastics-specific?"
 

1

Dr. Sarah speaks gymnastics

Gymnastics is a language and a lifestyle. Having a healthcare provider speak it and understand it is essential for gymnasts rehabbing an injury.

 

We'll talk specifics about how you got hurt, what skills make your pain worse/better, and different mats/surfaces you can use to participate in practice.

2

Exercises mimic gymnastics skills

In order to return to gymnastics post-injury, your body should be exposed to similar forces/ movements that will happen over and over again when you return to gymnastics. 

Rest assured that from the first session, Dr. Sarah will know every skill you are training so your body is prepared to do them again.

3

Gradual exposure back to gymnastics with a plan of exactly what to do

Just because you're cleared to return to gymnastics does not mean you're ready to go full force.

I'll give you a specific plan with recommendations on how many skills to perform on what events in order to safely return and avoid rebound injuries.

In order to provide the necessary care, attention, and resources that you deserve, we do not directly take insurance.

We'll provide you with everything you need to submit for reimbursement to your insurance.

4 STEP PROCESS:
 

1

I get to know you.

Complete an intake form so I get to know about your gymnastics before we meet.

Knowing what skills you do is important to personalize your plan to make sure you have the prerequisites needed to do the skills you're performing.

2

In-Person Assessment

We'll go through head-to-toe assessments of your strength, flexibility, and basic core gymnastics skills, and correlate that to your current skills and injury history to see if you are lacking any areas that may expose you to injuries. 

3

Your Game-Plan

Leave with a game plan of what exercises to perform and when in order to address your areas of improvement. 

4

Follow-Up

Depending on what we find in your assessment, we can follow up for things such as tracking specific measurements for progress, maintenance soft tissue work for recovery, or a strength & conditioning program.

SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

Justin

"Sarah was great to work with. Very professional, responsive, and flexible on scheduling with us. My daughter (16) is a varsity and club gymnast who was looking to relieve some residual pain in her knee, and just before our first appointment, my daughter wound up injuring her foot/ankle on a vault landing. Sarah took the time to really understand what my daughter was dealing with, where the problem areas were, and to just connect with her as a person (and former gymnast herself)... This was 1-on-1 time spent for the full session, unlike most PT facilities where you are 1 of 2 or 3 other patients where the therapist has to split their time. Sarah understands what it takes to be a high-level gymnast, and the exercises/tests/program were all designed with the challenging moves in mind that my daughter will need to be capable of to return to her gymnastics without limitations. We are highly satisfied and would 100% work with Sarah again."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Do you take my insurance?
    We are only in-network with Medicare Part B, otherwise we do not directly take insurance. Working as a self-pay model enables us to offer you highly personalized 1:1 care free from insurance limitations. We are able to spend completely 1:1 time with you and not push you off to unlicensed people, which is often the case at most insurance-based clinics. Dr. Sarah knows from experience that exercises need to be taught with intention and catered to your specific injury including making on the spot modifications if something isn't feeling right. Treating multiple patients at once and having unlicensed people run the exercise component of your PT session is simply ineffective at accomplishing this. Because Dr. Sarah can spend her undivided attention with you, it allows for intentional rehab with extensive education about what your condition is and how to tackle it. So much gets done in a single session that usually results in quicker recovery and significantly fewer sessions required. All of this adds up to long-term cost savings. We will provide you with everything you need to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement. Additionally, we do accept HSA and FSA cards for payment.
  • What are your prices for physical therapy?
    The evaluation is $150 and is around 60 minutes long. Follow-Ups are usually an hour long and are $125. If needed, 30 minute ($62.50) and 90 minute ($187.50) are also available. Packages of 4 and 8 sessions are available at a slightly discounted rate.
  • How will I know if I get reimbursed?
    We recommend you call your insurance and ask them "What are my Out-of-Network Physical Therapy Benefits." You should find out if you have a deductible to meet first, and in rare cases, if authorization is needed, which we can obtain for you if it is required. In some instances, your IN and OUT of network deductibles can cross accumulate, meaning credit for one goes towards both which can help you meet your deductible and get reimbursed sooner. From here, the reimbursement rate of your insurance for an out-of-network physical therapy session may or may not be equal to what we charge. It is easy to upload and submit the receipts to your insurance, and within a week or two you should find out if they reimbursed you.
  • Do I need to see a doctor or have a prescription to come see you?
    A prescription is only necessary if you have Medicare. Otherwise, New Jersey has direct access laws allowing patients to see a physical therapist without a doctor's referral or imaging. Physical Therapists are specially trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions and will refer you back to a physician if needed at any point during the rehab process. However, this often not needed and saves you time.
  • How is Stronger Performance Physical Therapy different from other PT clinics?
    In most physical therapy clinics, therapists spend 15 minutes or less with you, often while overseeing multiple other patients and then pass you off to an aide or student to go through exercises. The frequency of visits is typically 2-3 times per week for several months, and access to weights and equipment may be limited. At Stronger Performance Physical Therapy, you work one-on-one with Dr. Sarah for a full hour, with a customizable plan tailored to your needs. During your session, you are her only patient and sole focus. Treatment usually includes manual therapy to improve flexibility, correct alignment, and relieve pain. She guides you through every exercise, ensuring you target the right area and understand how each exercise will help you. We have a fully equipped gym with plenty of weights and equipment. You often need fewer sessions and less frequently. You also have access to Dr. Sarah via phone or email even between your sessions. Patients report significantly greater satisfaction with this level of care, and so does Dr. Sarah!
