We accept Blue Cross Blue Shield & Tricare insurance plans!
Please note: New patients with BCBS or Tricare policies will need to provide information for verification PRIOR to their appointment. Authorization for all insurance patients must be done in advance, and in some cases, will require a physicians referral.
*Please note: if you have Medicare as a primary & BCBS (Carefirst) as secondary insurance, we are NOT able to accept your plan. We are happy to help assist you in finding a good local practice that does take Medicare - so please call/email us for more information!
We do not accept Medicare, Medicaid, UHC, Mamsi, Cigna or Aetna.
While we are not able to interact directly with these insurance plans, ACRO PT also offers Direct-Pay Physical Therapy Services. Please see our "Direct Pay Physical Therapy Services" page for more information on what this means, rates & how we can help you submit for out of network benefits!
We are happy to explain our services & can help you find a local in-network PT should that be your primary concern. If you have specific questions, do not hesitate to email our billing staff directly!
Manual Physical Therapy
Manual therapy techniques are skilled hands-on techniques that are intended to improve tissue extensibility, increase range of motion, mobilize or manipulate soft tissue and joints, modulate pain and reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation, or restriction. Techniques may include manual myofascial release, manual traction, massage, mobilization/manipulation, and passive range of motion/manual stretching.
At ACRO PT, your therapist will select, prescribe, and implement the appropriate manual therapy techniques based on your condition. Within your plan of care, the goals of manual physical therapy include:
To decrease pain, spasm or swelling
To enhance health, wellness and fitness
To enhance or maintain physical performance
To increase the ability to move
To prevent or reduce impairment in body functions and structures,
To eliminate activity limitations and sport participation restrictions
To improve physical function.
Simply put - manual physical therapy is one of the essential physical therapy tools used in returning you to your life!
Therapeutic Exercise & Corrective Exercise
When joints, muscles & fascia stop moving well, the biomechanics of motion change. Most of the time this change is what causes you to have pain. Once all the restrictions have been removed, it's time to strengthen those muscles and restore their durability & endurance.
As no two people are alike - no two injuries are either. Your physical therapy plan of care will include specific exercises designed to address you body's unique needs.
You won't see a "back pain list" or a "shoulder list" at ACRO PT. You'll see specific corrective exercises in a routine that is prescribed specifically for you!
Trigger Point Dry Needling
ACRO PT offers Trigger Point Dry Needling! (Commonly referred to as "dry needling")
Trigger point dry needling (TDN) is a procedure in which a solid filament needle is inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point for the purpose of treating myofascial pain. In cases where traditional manual therapy and myofascial treatments have failed to produce complete resolution of symptoms, TDN has been shown to be an effective additional tool in eliminating pain.
