Specialized Physical Therapy

Live a more active, independent life with specialized physical therapy at Wayne UNC Health Care. You’ll find expert services tailored to your condition or situation, so you can accomplish more with less pain.

Specialized Services

Your family members of all ages benefit from Wayne UNC rehabilitation services. Take advantage of:

  • Aquatic therapy – Teaches gentle, warm-water exercises that relieve pressure on joints

Your First Appointment

Your care starts with an evaluation of your symptoms, abilities, and goals. A skilled therapist will:

  • Ask questions to fully understand your situation
  • Measure your performance on small tasks or exercises relevant to your condition
  • Perform a basic physical exam, if needed

Then, your therapist will explain what services you might need, how often, and for how long. You may receive exercises, stretches, or tasks to do at home, so you can make progress even before your next visit. Ask as many questions as you need to fully understand the care plan.

Follow-Up Care

During follow-up visits, you’ll gradually get more-challenging tasks to help you achieve your goals. Your therapist will use a variety of equipment, technology, and creative approaches to make treatment more fun. Some exercises may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but will help reduce long-term pain.

Depending on your type of therapy and condition, you may need to meet with the therapist for a few weeks, a few months, or a long-term period.

Your Responsibility

Between sessions, follow your therapist’s advice for self-care to help you achieve the best results. During appointments, tell the therapist about your progress, symptoms, and roadblocks so the care plan can be adjusted if needed.

Cost & Insurance Coverage

Ask your insurance provider what your costs may be and whether you need a doctor’s referral for coverage. Alternatively, explore discounted self-pay options through MDSave.
