If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, outpatient therapy may be your answer. Contact your doctor or call us to set up an appointment to see one of our therapy specialists.

How do I become a patient?

To get started, talk with your physician about your conditions that may be causing pain or restricting activities. A prescription for therapy needs to be ordered by your physician. Once you receive a prescription for therapy, you can contact us to schedule your first appointment. Contact Aaron Brown, Rehab Director at 812-636-0348.

What can I expect on my first visit?

During your first visit you can expect the following:

  • Arrive at your appointment with your paperwork completed (if applicable)
  • You or your doctor will provide us with your prescription for physical therapy.
  • We will copy your insurance card.
  • You will be seen for the initial evaluation by the therapist.

The therapist will discuss the following:

  • Your medical history.
  • Your current problems/complaints.
  • Pain intensity, what aggravates and eases the problem.
  • How this is impacting your daily activities or your functional limitations.
  • Your goals with physical therapy.
  • Medications, tests, and procedures related to your health.

The therapist will then perform the objective evaluation which may include some of the following:

  • Palpation – touching around the area of the pain/problem. This is done to check for the presence of tenderness, swelling, soft tissue integrity, tissue temperature, inflammation, etc.
  • Range of Motion (ROM) – the therapist will move the joint(s) to check for the quality of movement and any restrictions.
  • Muscle Testing – the therapist may check for strength and the quality of the muscle contraction. Pain and weakness may be noted. Often the muscle strength is graded. This is also part of a neurological screening.
  • Neurological Screening – the therapist may check to see how the nerves are communicating with the muscles, sensing touch, pain, vibration, or temperature. Reflexes may be assessed as well.
  • Special Tests – the therapist may perform special tests to confirm/rule out the presence of additional problems.
  • Posture Assessment – the positions of joints relative to ideal and each other may be assessed.

The therapist will then formulate a list of problems you are having, and how to treat those problems. A plan is subsequently developed with the patient’s input. This includes how many times you should see the therapist per week, how many weeks you will need therapy, home programs, patient education, short-term/long-term goals, and what is expected after discharge from therapy. This plan is created with input from you, your therapist, and your doctor.

How long is a therapy session?

Treatment sessions typically last 30 to 60 minutes per visit.

What do I wear to my appointments?

 

We encourage you to wear clothes that are comfortable and easy to move around in. Socks and rubber soled shoes are also recommended.

How many treatments will I need?

This is highly variable. You may need one visit or you may need months of care. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated on a monthly basis and when you see your doctor, we will provide you with a progress report with our recommendations.

How is therapy paid for?

Outpatient Therapy is usually covered by all insurances except for Medicaid in the State of Indiana. Prior to your arrival, we retrieve your insurance information and verify your benefits and give a full explanation of what your insurance covers, and if you are responsible for any portion. Ketcham Memorial bills your insurance provider and will mail you a statement if any additional amount is owed.

What will I do after therapy is completed?

Some patients will need to continue with home exercises. Some may choose to continue with a gym exercise program. Others will complete their rehabilitation and return to normal daily activities. It is important that you communicate your goals to your therapist, so he/she can develop a custom program for you.
