“He who treats the site of pain is often lost - Karel Lewit”
Any type of neuromuscular or skeletal injury in one area of our body can have its manifold effects on other body parts causing pain or restricted movements. If this is not attended to appropriately on time and in a right manner, such pain or impaired movement may possibly last for a long period of time and may even cause a degenerative effect on other areas of our body.

We have all heard of one on one care. However, most often you end up getting limited time with your clinician, and the majority of your treatment is completed by an aide. At Physis, your entire treatment is planned and administered by your Physical Therapist without you being assigned to an assistant or an aide. Your clinician is actively monitoring your treatment, manually guiding you through your plan, and giving you 100% of their time to maximize the benefits of your session. That’s why our patients get faster and lasting results.
We accept Out of Network Insurance Coverage from Major Medical Insurances. We verify your benefits for you and discuss them with you before your appointment. This maximizes transparency and avoids surprise bills.
We also offer self-pay packages.
There is a stigma surrounding out-of-network insurances. Sometimes, the cost associated with out-of-network insurances can be more than in-network. Our healthcare system is undergoing rapid changes and there is a rising financial burden placed on the patients themselves, even in-network.
Being out-of-network allows us to give the patients the value and quality they are looking for. Imagine having 45-60 minutes of your primary clinician’s full time and attention for manual treatments and exercises with real-time corrections, modifications, and progressions. No wonder our patients see higher satisfaction and faster results with low rates of recurrence of symptoms.
You can use your FSA or HSA card to pay for the treatments as well.
