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.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, activity levels dropped for a lot of people. Between stay-at-home orders, gym closures and working from home, people became more sedentary. On top of that, there were shortages of equipment like dumbbells and bicycles, making staying active at home difficult even if you wanted to.

But this summer, things look different; vaccines are widely available, restrictions are loosening and people are looking to get active and enjoy the warm weather. That’s all good news, but if you had a long break from activity, your body might not be ready to jump right back in. Here are a few tips to help you get more active without getting hurt:

Start slow

  • If you’re a runner, think about a walk to run program
  • If you’re a weight lifter, start with lighter weights and less reps.
  • Whatever your activity of choice is, start with short periods of activity and gradually work your way back up.

Warm-up and cool down

Warming up gets your heart and lungs ramped up and prepares your muscles and tendons for the increase in activity about to come. Include some light cardio like jogging, calisthenics, or cycling, followed by active stretching like butt kicks, high knees, or yoga.

Cooling down transitions your body back to a lower state of stress – it brings your heart rate and breathing down, decreases blood flow to your muscles and back to places like your digestive system, and helps you relax. It’s also a great place for static stretches if you need some work on your flexibility.

Take a day off

Rest days let your body recover and keep you from getting burned out. Not enough exercise isn’t good for you, but too much of a good thing can cause problems too.

Watch for early signs of injury

Some soreness for a few days after activity is normal, especially if you’ve had a long break. But there are a few common issues to watch out for as you return to activity:

  • Swelling or bruising
  • Joint pain, especially in the knees or shoulders
  • Foot pain, which could be a sign of plantar fasciitis
  • Muscle strains – particularly common in the hamstrings
  • Sprains – most common in the ankle

Any of these issues justifies a call to your physical therapist. Getting checked out early can prevent an injury that derails your attempt to return to activity. PTs see all of the issues just mentioned on a regular basis and can help safely guide you back into a more active lifestyle.
