FAQs / Common Questions

Fischer Physical Therapy is much different than typical outpatient physical therapy clinics. We hear positive comments about this regularly. Our approach is holistic in nature. "Holistic" is a term that refers to the philosophy of treating the physical body as a whole with many inter-connected and inter-related parts, rather than focusing on only the injured region. We treat the whole person, within the scope of physical therapy practice, because of the profound influences many "distant" parts of the body have on the injured region. For more information on what makes us unique, see "Discover the Fischer Physical Therapy Difference."
Absolutely not. The majority of the patients we treat at Fischer Physical Therapy are unaware of how their painful condition started. Sometimes it is an accumulation of physical stresses. Other times, symptoms may not develop for months or years after a minor injury. If you are in any degree of pain and it is influencing the way you function, you are a great candidate to receive our services.
The State of Montana has set laws that allow anyone to seek physical therapy without the referral of a physician or medical professional. Despite this, some insurance companies still require a referral to cover physical therapy costs. The insurance plans we most frequently deal with allow for "direct access" for physical therapy services without a prescription from a doctor. Feel free to call us for additional information or check with your insurance company.
Please see our Services page for a detailed answer.
Physical Therapists are professionally educated at a university level and hold a Bachelors, Masters, or Doctorate degree in physical therapy. They are licensed in the state they practice. The scope of physical therapy practice is defined by the American Physical Therapy Association to include the following:
  1. A physical therapist provides services to patients/clients who have impairments, functional limitations, disabilities or changes in physical function and health status resulting from an injury, disease or other causes.
  2. A physical therapist practices in collaboration with a variety of health care professionals including physicians, physician's assistants, dentists, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers and many others.
  3. A physical therapist provides prevention, wellness, consultation and educational services both in the clinic and in the community.
  4. Physical therapists are extensively trained in the areas of the musculoskeletal and neurological systems of the body and therefore they can be very effective in treating a wide variety of injuries and illnesses. Medical and evidence base research provides the foundation for physical therapy practice.
