Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Do you take insurance?
Have you ever been billed an unexpected or large amount after seeing a physician or doctor several months after? For that and many other reasons, I am out of network with every insurance besides Medicare ( in network). They dictate how physical therapy is performed as well as the frequency and duration. It’s only sensical that your one and only physical therapist understands your impairments, level of dysfunction and understands what treatment program will best serve you. Lastly, physical therapy isn’t meant to be jammed into a 4-6 week session. A lot of the times it is relearning habitual movements, movement patterns, and composed of a life long learning journey guiding you not only to your prior level of function, but past. This is meant to be on a continuum as long as needed, not always 4-6 weeks. That being said, you will still be provided a receipt after the service so that you can call your insurance and receive your out of network benefits.

What are the Strength and Conditioning Programs?
Pr1me Movement also offers a service called “Strength and Conditioning,” in order to help those who are in need or lost when attempting to create their own workout regimen.

This can essentially be for anyone > 10 years old and is completely customized to your health and fitness level, expertise and according to YOUR goals, not his.
Do I have to be in the same state to utilize the Strength and Conditioning Program?
Great question, and the answer is no! By utilizing my CSCS, I can reach across state borders to prescribe a workout regimen that addresses your goals. This is unique and specific to everyone.
Do I have to be in the same state for Telehealth?
The answer is dependent on what version of Telehealth you are looking for….
Regarding Physical Therapy: I am currently licensed in the states of North and South Carolina and legally speaking, I am only allowed to provide Telehealth in states that I’m licensed in. Therefore anywhere in North or South Carolina is acceptable.
Regarding Strength and Conditioning: I am allowed to discuss health and fitness while utilizing my strength and conditioning certification and therefore there is different legislation on this topic. Anywhere in the USA is allowed to talk with me via an online video conference to discuss their exercise, or generalized health and fitness questions.
