Frequently Asked Questions
How long will this process take?
There is honestly no way to predict this, as each of us is unique and brings a myriad of past and present problems to the process. But, you can be sure that after 2-3 sessions at the most, you will feel lasting, positive changes from your Myofascial Release treatment at the Pain Relief Center. Over the past 19 years , we’ve seen this as a consistent result. We will empower you to be an integral part of your recovery.
What is your session length and frequency?
Insurance-based sessions (see below for insurances that are accepted) are approximately 40 minutes in length. Non-insurance sessions: standard therapy sessions are 50 minutes in duration. Half-sessions (25-minutes) are usually appropriate for children. Often clients will book double sessions to achieve deeper results. We also make available intensive therapy programs, where multiple sessions are booked on successive days of the week. This is a tried and true model for making huge shifts and changes. Please inquire for more information. Session frequency is determined at the time of evaluation and re-assessed along the way. Unlike traditional physical therapy, where you are sent for a prescribed frequency and duration that may have no bearing on your condition, we will look at the evaluation results, the chronicity and extent of your pain/dysfunction, and determine a frequency that works best for you. Many issues of pain, even longstanding ones, can be resolved in a short period of time.
Will my Health Insurance cover these services?
The Pain Relief Center currently accepts Excellus and most Blue Cross/Blue Shield Plans, No-Fault, and Medicare. Other insurance approvals are pending at this time. If you are not covered by the previously mentioned plans, services at the Pain Relief Center are considered “Out-of-Network” physical therapy by most insurance companies. Many plans now have Out-of-Network provisions. We suggest that you contact your health insurance provider to see whether you have coverage. If you have coverage for out of network physical therapy, we will work with you and your physician to obtain reimbursement. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
