At Align Physical Therapy, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional patient-centered care. We treat a range of orthopaedic conditions. Given the advanced training in the Schroth Method, Align Physical Therapy is uniquely positioned to treat scoliosis, kyphosis, and back pain.
We understand that the typical physical therapy practice model does not provide the optimal environment for patients to thrive. At most practices, therapists face pressure to see multiple patients at a time in order to have sufficient reimbursement for services. That means you get divided attention from your therapist - it could take 2, 3 or even 4 visits to get a 60 full minutes of personalized, one-on-one time with your therapist. Align Physical Therapy is different.
At Align PT, all patient care is provided 100% one-on-one.
Conditions we treat include but are not limited to:
We are C1 and C2 certified in treatment of scoliosis and kyphosis with the Schroth Method. That means we treat patients of all ages from young children to those who are elderly. We also offer intensive treatment for those who are traveling from distance to receive treatment. For more information about the Schroth Method at Align PT and how it can empower you, click on "Schroth Method" above. For more information about the training process for physical therapists to become certified in the Schroth Method see http://www.schroth-barcelonainstitute.com/. To find a Schroth Method provider near you if you are outside the Atlanta Metro area and surrounding region, go to the Schroth Barcelona Institute website and look for your state under "Physical Therapist Directory."
In order to see patients 100% one-on-one, we do not accept insurance. Payment is due at time of service and we provide the patient with a receipt that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
This actually saves you time and money. For example, if you are being seen at a clinical practice following the traditional physical therapy model where the practice bills the insurance for you, that therapist will be pressured to divide time between you and other patients while you are there. They may have multiple patients scheduled at the same time as you. You may have to spend 2-4 sessions (2-4 copayments or co-insurance payments, 2-4 times taking off work or scheduling around your physical therapy appointment) to spend 60 minutes of one-on-one time with a physical therapist. We know - we have worked in clinics just like that!
That is how we know that the traditional physical therapy practice model costs you more time and money, and does not result in the best outcomes! That is why we started Align Physical Therapy - there is a better, more cost-effective, patient-centered way to deliver exceptional care. Come and experience the Align Physical Therapy difference.
