Do I need to see my physician first?
No. You can be evaluated and treated for 30 days from the time of your initial visit without a prescription from your physician. We will, however, with your permission, inform your physician of our findings and keep them updated on your treatment and progress.
How soon can I expect my first appointment?
Typically, a patient can be scheduled the same day or within 24 hours of calling.
How long will an appointment last?
Depending on the severity of the condition, the initial visit typically requires 45-60 minutes. Follow up visits usually require 30 minutes to 1 hour.
How should I dress?
Most therapy will require exercise and therapeutic activities. You should dress comfortably in loose fitting clothing.
Is my treatment covered by insurance?
We participate with most major insurance plans. When you call to schedule an appointment we will verify your insurance coverage and let you know the coverage provided under your particular plan.
How long have you been established?
We have been providing physical therapy services to Warminster and the surrounding towns since 2005. Our reputation in Bucks County and word of mouth is our number one referral source.
What type of injuries or conditions do you treat?
We provide physical therapy for all muscular, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, orthopedic, work and sports injuries. Conditions range from minor ligament sprains and muscle and tendon strains to rotator cuff tears and joint replacements/ post-surgical rehabilitation. Whether your pain is from an acute back ache or chronic degenerative arthritis, we possess the expertise to help.
Do you have a Specialization?
Yes. We specialize in treating neck and back pain using Mechanical Diagnostic Therapy also known as “The McKenzie Method”. We have expertise in manual physical therapy using the theories of Cyriax, Graston Technique and A.R.T. We also have developed a unique method for treating tendinopathy/tendonitis or repetitive use injuries such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow & plantar fasciitis. In addition, we provide balance training, vestibular evaluations and rehabilitation including canalith repositioning for treating symptoms of vertigo and dizziness.
I went to Physical Therapy in the past and it did not help. What makes McCabe & Brady physical therapy different?
Our mechanical diagnostic evaluation and treatment approach sets us apart from our competition. This philosophy is based on finding the movement(s) that produce your complaints or pain and movement(s) that reduce and abolish your complaints or pain. This ensures an individualized treatment plan aimed at abolishing your symptoms and returning you to an active lifestyle. Most physical therapy companies will tell you they provide individual treatment plans; however, individual treatment is our philosophy!
Do you provide services for people without insurance?
Yes. We do offer self pay rates. Please call for more information.
Is therapy going to make me worse or cause me more pain?
NO! Our goal is to make you feel better! For most diagnoses, the aim of treatment is to reduce pain. However, there are some diagnoses that may require you to experience a mild discomfort above baseline to create a change and promote a healing process. We use expert manual therapy techniques to reduce any discomfort you may feel during certain treatments.
What happens if I have a flare-up of my pain?
Our therapists are here for you! Most often, a simple phone call and treatment advice over the phone resolves the issue. If this does not help, you can always come in for an emergency appointment to help resolve the issue.
Do I need an MRI or X-ray before coming to therapy?
No. In most cases, these studies are not needed. MRI’s and X-ray’s only confirm a clinical diagnosis and do not provide insight into the type of physical therapy treatment needed. If treatment is not progressing as expected, your therapist may ask your physician to recommend imaging studies to determine the extent of the injury and if more of an invasive approach is required.
