If you are being treated in our office for a case you will at some point see one of our case management providers so they can evaluate your case in our office. Most times the case management providers will periodically see you or talk to you about your case so that we can update our information and the doctor on your case to continue treatment in our office. You may also see other providers for your case management. This is because more is better than one. Many times your body can become accustomed to a specific touch, or technique. This can sometimes stop the body from progressing.
Also all of our providers specialize in different areas of massage/manual therapy techniques. This allows us to evaluate what care is going to get you well the quickest. If we limited you to a single provider/therapist we might never know if another technique works better for you or not. Another reason you may see a different provider is to get you comfortable with seeing someone else on the chance that your regular provider is not available. I.e. Your provider goes on vacation, or your regular provider feels like you could benefit from seeing a therapist that specializes in a therapy you may do well with.
Due to the medical nature of our facility and the treatment you will be receiving, our belief is “If you wouldn’t tip your doctor, then why would you tip a massage therapist you are seeing for medical/therapeutic purposes?” It is tip enough when you think highly enough to refer us your friends, family, co – worker…etc. to see one of our many skilled providers.
Do I need a referral to receive Treatment in your office?
You do need a referral to be treated in our office if you are being seen for a case/injury. However; if you are not needing to bill insurance and you are being seen in our office for wellness care we do not require a referral in most instances. The exception to this would be if you are wanting to be seen and you have a pre-existing illness or injury that we need clearance from a medical provider to be able to treat. I.e. If you have a compromised immune system, are undergoing treatments for cancer, you are receiving care for certain disorders like a kidney disease and are on dialysis…etc.) You may even set up an appointment for a consultation in our office to speak to one of our care management providers to answer any further questions you have about care in our office.
