To achieve patient treatment goals, our physical therapist may use the following equipment and treatments and modalities:

  • Therapeutic exercise

  • Moist heat
  • Cold pack/ice massage

Our location within Hawthorn Medical means we are able to have ongoing communication with the referring physician to ensure that the needs of our patients are met. Hawthorn also has the latest technology in computerized medical records giving our therapists the advantage of reading the latest physician visit notes and the reports of any diagnostic tests that the patient may have received.

Referrals are accepted from Hawthorn physicians as well as physicians from outside of Hawthorn Medical. Therapy services are provided to children, adolescents and adults.

A physician referral is required to begin assessment and treatment. Patients will be assessed and individualized plans based on the individual diagnosis and physician orders. Because of different body types, patterns of movement, and alignments, therapy will be different for each patient and the number of treatments needed will vary. If you need to cancel or reschedule appointment, call 508-996-3991. We ask that you give 24 hours notice.

What to wear/bring

Please bring your physician referral with you. Be prepared to start your therapy at your first visit. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and sneakers or other comfortable shoes.

Insurance coverage

It is important for you to understand your insurance coverage for treatment. Because insurance plans vary in their coverage of physical therapy, it is your responsibility to contact your insurance carrier to determine eligibility, benefit information and authorization for services.
