Move With Intention
How and why I’m different:
I am a manually trained therapist with a hands-on, whole body approach to problem solving pain.
I will evaluate your biomechanics (how your joints move throughout your kinetic chain), movement patterns, and muscle imbalances.
I will provide hands-on one-on-one treatment customized to your needs, education to improve your understanding of your body, and corrective therapeutic exercises that will allow you to heal and strengthen outside of our appointments.
I am also a personal trainer with a specialty in functional strength training. Once you are out of pain, a strength training plan should be followed to ensure proper form and mechanics are maintained.
1. Obtain a Prescription
Your doctor or chiropractor must write you a prescription before we can begin therapy.
2. Initial Evaluation
The initial evaluation will be 45-60 minutes. The nature of the diagnosis will determine how often patients are seen. Typically, patients are seen once per week.
3. Therapy Schedule
I will provide a customized therapy routine and schedule.
4. Making Payments
I am a cash-based practice and do not contract with insurance companies. If you would like to submit it to insurance to attempt out-of-network reimbursement, a superbill with the proper CPT codes will be provided upon request. Receipts will be given for submission to cafeteria plans. HAS credit cards typically work with my software.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you contract with insurance companies?
No, I am a cash-based practice. Payment is expected at the time of service. I accept cash, check, or credit card.
Can I submit to my insurance company?
A “superbill” will be given upon request with proper CPT codes if you wish to submit to your insurance for out-of-network benefits.
What should I wear?
Loose-fitting, workout-type clothing is best.
Can I use my HSA credit card?
Yes. It’s treated like any other credit card payment.
Why do I have to have a prescription for physical therapy?
It is Missouri law that a physical therapist must have a prescription from a physician or a chiropractic physician in order to perform evaluations and treatment. The PT license can be revoked if one is not obtained.
After suffering with back pain for 15 years, I was desperate when I met Rachael. I had seen many allopathic physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists, most of them caring and kind individuals. I was given shoe lifts, medication, and exercise regimens, but nothing provided lasting improvement. Over the years, the pain became more unbearable to the point of just accepting that I will have to learn to live with it. That’s when I met Rachael, and she offered to help. Rachael, like the providers before her, was kind and caring. However, what was different was her ability to listen and think through how I described my pain. After a thorough evaluation, she was able to realign my neck and back painlessly and with lasting results. Once my back was in proper alignment, I was able to work with Rachael to strengthen and train my muscles to maintain that alignment. When I’m with Rachael, it is clear that she is always seeking to learn more in order to help her patients. Rachael truly changed my life by allowing me to live free from the burden of back pain, and I believe she has been able to help me and many others because she is a life-long learner, a listener, and a true caregiver.
