Do I need a prescription from my doctor for physical therapy?

​No, Maine is a direct access state, which means you do not need a script from your doctor for physical therapy.  However, please check with your insurance provider as some providers require a script to cover services.

What if I do not want to use insurance for physical therapy?

​You're still welcome!  We offer self-pay rates as well.  Please ask our front desk for these rates if you are interested.

Will I feel better after my first visit?

​At Dynamic PTSC, we strive to make you feel better as quickly as possible.  Recovery times vary based on a variety of factors.  After your initial evaluation, your Physical Therapist will provide you with a reasonable timeline to reach your goals.

 

Injuries: Did you know?

  • High school athletes suffer 2 million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits, and 30,000 hospitalizations each year.
     

  • Female soccer players are twice as likely to get injured compared to their male counterparts, have a higher incidence of recurrent injuries, and tend to suffer more severe knee injuries such as a complete ligament tear.
     

  • Ankle sprains are common in sports that require sudden stops and cutting movements.  1.7 million high school athletes participated in supervised soccer and basketball programs and, on average, 15% (1 million) of these athletes sustain ankle sprains each year.
     

  • Not only are ACL injuries in youth soccer common and a financial burden, they are also detrimental to long-term health as radiographic signs of osteoarthritis development were present in 80% of soccer players less than 15 years after an ACL injury.
     

  • Training programs that focus on lower extremity strengthening, sport-specific agility drills, and proper body mechanics during jumping activities have proven to be successful in reducing injury rates among youth athletes.
