1
What will happen during my first appointment?
Right arrow icon in dark blue
During your first visit, we go over your history and ask you questions relating to your injury or problem, including what your symptoms are and what makes you feel better or worse.
We will ask about previous injuries, other current or past medical conditions, as well as your daily activities such as work, sports and hobbies in order to determine factors related to your problem.
We will also review any special tests/reports (X-rays, CT scans, MRI etc.) that you have had.
We will then do a physical assessment and biomechanical exam to assess your movement and problem areas.
Along with your history, this will help us determine the cause of your pain and dysfunction and how to treat it most cost-effectively and efficiently.
We will then discuss our findings and begin our treatment plan directed at achieving your identified goals for therapy.
2
What can I expect from physical therapy?
Right arrow icon in dark blue
Physical therapists perform a variety of interventions, including manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education and therapeutic exercise.
At Beyond Physical Therapy, all treatments are performed by a licensed clinician.
Exercises are supervised and individualized for the patient as it pertains to their condition and goals for therapy.
Each person is also instructed in a home exercise program, which is designed to complement treatments performed during the in-person sessions.
3
How do I know if I need physical therapy?
Right arrow icon in dark blue
If you are suffering from pain and/or having difficulty performing a physical activity, you should consult a physical therapist.
We can help you restore optimal physical function by promoting muscle stability, flexibility, pain-free mobility, and better movement patterns.
In many cases, we can accomplish this without expensive surgery, while often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
We can also teach you how to prevent or manage your condition so that you can achieve and enjoy the best quality of life.
If you are not sure you may schedule an evaluation with one of our physical therapists, via our online form, email or call us at (678) 465-7083.
4
Do I need a prescription or referral for physical therapy?
Right arrow icon in dark blue
Georgia state law allows the patient to receive a physical therapy exam and treatment without a referral from a physician for the first 21 days or 8 visits. This is called “Direct Access.”
There are other instances like chronic or neuromuscular developmental conditions as well as health, wellness and maintenance status that allows the patient to extend their physical therapy care past this time span.
Please note that there are some insurance providers that do require a physician referral.
When you contact us to schedule, we are happy to collect the proper information to determine if a physician’s referral is required.
5
What should I wear to my physical therapy sessions?
Right arrow icon in dark blue
Wear loose and comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely.
If the condition for which you are being treated involves a specific region of the body it is preferred that that area be as accessible as possible.
If you have been given or are currently using any assistive devices, including orthotics, please bring them with you.
6
What do I need to bring with me on my first appointment?
Right arrow icon in dark blue
Please be sure to bring your completed patient forms, any referral or prescription from your doctor or other health practitioner, your insurance card, driver’s license, method of payment and any special tests/reports (X-rays, CT scans, MRI etc.) you have.
Please arrive 15 minutes ahead of time to make sure all forms and necessary paperwork are completed.

How many visits do I need?
