Patient Referrals

In the state of Wisconsin, in most cases a client can begin therapy without a physician referral; however, your insurance may require it. Medicare and Medicaid do require a physician referral, but many other HMOs and private insurance companies do not. We can help you determine if you need a referral and will contact your insurance provider on your behalf to verify.
For patients considering a cash pay method, no referral is required; however, we are unable to accept cash for those with Medicare, Medicaid or other government insurance plans.

If you are concerned about travelling to our offices, we offer Telehealth Services. Many insurances are covering telehealth for physical, occupational, and speech therapy during this crisis. If you’re unsure whether or not insurance would allow, we are happy to contact the plan to research on your behalf. If insurance does not cover, we have flexible cash pay options to help ease the burden, yet get you the care you need today.

Beginning May 4, 2020, we will resume operations for massage therapy clients in our Holmen and La Crosse clinics. To schedule an appointment, call 877-526-9888.

Recent research is showing that surgery might not be needed as often as we think. A large review estimates that 10% to 20% of surgeries might be unnecessary and that in some specialties such as cardiology and orthopedics. The reasons for so many unneeded surgeries being performed are varied, but the most common are that more conservative options aren’t tried first.

Recent research is showing that certain common surgeries aren’t any better than a placebo. Two such examples are kyphoplasty – a procedure for spinal compression fractures, and partial meniscectomy – a procedure used to treat tears of the meniscus in the knee. If a surgeon hasn’t continued to learn, they won’t know that these surgeries often don’t offer any more benefit than a non-surgical treatment and will continue to perform them.

Every surgery, even “minor” ones carry risks. These include complications from anesthesia, blood clots after surgery, delayed healing of the incision, infection, and unintended damage to nerves or other organs near the surgical site. Some of these risks cause discomfort for a period after surgery and go away, but others can result in permanent disability or even death. For some patients and conditions, surgery is a great treatment option, but with all the associated risks, when surgery can be avoided, it should be.

For musculoskeletal problems like back and joint pain, sprains, and strains, seeing your PT before a surgeon can help keep you out of the operating room and get you back to life without surgery. Studies have shown that physical therapy is just as good if not better than surgery for a multitude of conditions and carries less risk. Some examples would include rotator cuff tears, meniscal tears, spinal stenosis, low back pain, and osteoarthritis.

Physical therapy can’t fix every problem, and for some patients surgery is the best choice. In most cases, starting with physical therapy is the right choice, and for many patients, PT is the only treatment necessary.
