What is different about physical therapy visit at Newburyport Wellness? The model of practice that I have adopted at Newburyport Wellness is to develop a partnership of support and holistic care for my patients. Evaluations are total body so that I can discern the exact causes and effects an injury might have on related body structures. I spend 1.5 hours of 1:1 time with clients during this time. Follow ups are always 60 minutes of a 1:1 session without interruptions or overlapping with other patients. You might receive a video of exercises tailored for you and/or a detailed personalized chart of exercises. Visits are 1 visit/week and many of my clients graduate quickly to bimonthly sessions! Of equal importance is the focus on integrating the it the mind body connection to optimize success. You can always call or email with any questions about your exercises between sessions. I come to each session committed to your success!
Do you take insurance? Newburyport Wellness is a fee for service clinic, meaning payment is required at the time of service. Newburyport Wellness believes in the highest quality of care that is not dictated by insurance regulations, but by your goals as a client. PT in network does not mean it is free. Most people have copays, co-insurances and deductibles to meet. Your fees at Newburport Wellness may infact be less than that if you were to see a PT in network.
Newburyport Wellness is considered an out of network provider. Please contact your insurance company and ask about your out of network benefits. Upon request, you will be given a detailed receipt that you can submit to your insurance or health/flex spending account so you may be reimbursed for Physical Therapy services. Newburyport Wellness is not a Medicare provider. Wellness services are not typically covered by insurance. A Physician referral is no longer required for Physical Therapy, although some insurance companies may still require one. If you are interested in telehealth, please ask your insurance company about your coverage for this service.
I work to empower my clients to be the primary care "responder" to their physical health because I believe we all deserve the right to be educated on how to best care for our own bodies. I am dedicated to doing whatever it takes to help clients reach their goals.
Do you just provide physical therapy? No. I have been working with the Integrative Women's Health Institute to complete my Endometriosis Coaching Certification and Perimenopause Certification. I continue to work to progress my learning and expansion of insight in the progressive nature of holistic wellness coaching and treatment. As a certified Performance Enhancement Specialist, I work with many clients on personal fitness goals and sports performance goals. My work in the fitness world varies from those that are just beginning an exercise program, to those aiming to reach a specific sport goal. In addition, my training with the Integrated Women's Health Institute has enhanced my coaching skill set.
Why do you focus on the core? The inner core consists of four muscle groups: the transverse abdominals, diaphragm, pelvic floor muscles, and mulitfidi (tiny back muscles). These muscles hold internal organs and stabilize the core.
The inner core muscles work together, relaxing and contracting during diaphragmatic breath. The pressure deep inside your abdominal cavity changes in concert with your breath. It’s this tightening and relaxing that provides stability for your trunk. Your inner core activates prior to all other motions, such as reaching and stepping.
A weakened, dysfunctional core can be the cause of a host of other problems including chronic low back pain, urinary incontinence, constipation, pain during sex, decreased sports performance, instability, and pelvic or hip pain.
How does back and hip pain relate to the inner core? The inner core consists of abdominal, pelvic floor, and back muscles in addition to your diaphragm (breathing muscle). The inner core muscles are pain inhibited and can shut down when there is pain, leaving you at risk of further injury or a slower recovery. Proper inner core activation is critical to creating stability and support in your back.
