Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will the occupational therapy (OT) or physical therapy (PT) treatment be painful?
In the majority of cases, the treatment provided by the therapist is not painful. What we have learned about the patient-therapist relationship is that if patients do not comply with their home exercise program, the therapy sessions will be more difficult and create more post-treatment soreness. Patients that consistently follow through with their home program continue to experience "relief" from painful symptoms!
2. Does insurance cover OT/PT evaluation and treatment?
Yes, OT/PT are covered by most insurance plans, however each plan is different in terms of deductible and copay. HHW accepts most major plans (see insurance listing) and also precertifies each patient prior to the initial visit. Our referring MD's also have lists of the plans we accept.
3. Is massage therapy covered by insurance?
Massage therapy is rarely covered by insurance. HHW does not bill insurance for massage therapy. However, if a plan provides coverage, we can provide the form for filing. We request ALL massage clients pay at time of service.
4. What is the difference between a "Swedish" massage and "Deep Tissue" massage?
A Swedish massage is primarily for relaxation and focusing on areas of muscle tension. A Deep Tissue massage concentrates on specific areas of pain and is effective for releasing connective tissue and deactivating trigger points. All types of massage are beneficial for increasing the cell's production of procollagen (important for cellular repair), increasing blood flow/circulation and releasing toxins.
