Foley Physical Therapy believes your physical therapist should be one of your primary healthcare providers. Providing one to one, uninterrupted evaluation, expert education and treatment.
Healthcare and insurance can be frustrating for patients who must frequently change health providers and plans. The continuity of care is lacking, the 1:1 attention is absent and sessions are too brief. Patients are getting tired of paying more for inadequate, incomplete or impersonal care.
Direct Pay care from Foley Physical Therapy might be less expensive for you in the long run, than repetitive insurance based physical therapy.
We believe you should always have access to us, before and as always, after an injury. We believe physical therapists are THE musculoskeletal experts with comprehensive training in cardiopulmonary health, pathomechanics, pain management and differential diagnosis among many other areas.
We believe we are the best people to advise you on your long term musculoskeletal health, and be on the team advising you yearly.
The fields of regenerative medicine, functional medicine, aging research and health and wellness care are evolving. As a micro- practice we have the flexibility to stay on top of changes in these areas and implement current best practices into our physical therapy practice faster.
