What to Expect at Crystal Coast Integrative Medicine & Physical Therapy
CCIM is an out-of-network provider. Ginger made the decision to work out-of-network in 2005 in order to focus on patient needs, particularly for pain and special needs populations whose insurance claims are frequently denied. Ginger is well known for helping people who are still dealing with pain and injury after they have already received treatment from a typical in-network PT clinic.
What physical therapy is not:
- Running through a list of exercises that you could likely do on your own at home
- Receiving treatments from machines rather than a therapist
- Spending most of your time counting to ten and with very little supervision
- Seeing your therapist only occasionally
What physical therapy is:
- When working with Ginger she is involved 100% in your care from beginning to end.
- She prescribes individualized therapy based on evaluation of your neuromuscular and musculoskeletal needs and the most current scientific clinical standards.
- She will be there with you every step of your recovery, providing the hands-on healing methods each patient deserves.
- Ginger is constantly involved in education and research with other health care pros across North America, so she can offer the most up-to-date information on your best plan of care to optimize recovery.
Filing Your Claim: If you would like to file a claim for insurance reimbursement, you can request invoices that are ready to submit.
Physical Therapists are Clinical Specialists with Direct Access to Practice: In the state of North Carolina, physical therapists have autonomy and work in private practice, which means we evaluate and diagnosis without a doctor’s prescription or referral. However, if your insurance dictates, a physical therapy referral from your MD, DO or ND may be required in order to receive insurance reimbursement.
