Why choose out of pocket physical therapy?
Understanding your insurance is important. You may pay less for personalized physical therapy with Dr. Rachael and get better in fewer visits than with a physical therapist that takes insurance and have to pay high co-pays for each visit. The visit(s) with in-network providers typically are not the same length of time. In addition, you will be required to see your physician, prior to using your physical therapy insurance, because insurance companies in the state of Michigan require a referral and prescription. If you are paying for physical therapy either way, why not pay based on your choice? You will also have the added benefit of having the same physical therapist come to your home, see you in clinic, or meeting with you virtually.

Can I Bring My Baby?
Yes of course you may bring your baby! However, having a one on one solo session is preferred by many of my mama clients. This will enable you to focus on your healing during the session. It is understandable for many reasons if you need to bring baby for nursing, child care, and more. If baby is present, and needs time for cuddles, nursing, and or diaper changes, this may limit the amount of work that we are able to do in your visit and may extend the needed amount of visits. Due to scheduling, I will need to end on time in order to honor the time of the next client. There is a lobby area where a family member or friend may sit with baby during your visit. In addition, there are several coffee shops, restaurants, walking trails, and the Rochester Municipal Park near by for your family member or friend to spend time with baby.
