QUANTUM THERAPY, PC Make an appointment

Do you take insurance?

No, but depending on your out of network physical therapy benefits, you may be eligible for reimbursement. However, you are responsible for finding out what your benefits are, and for submitting the claims. I can give you a receipt of services with the necessary treatment codes in those cases. Payment to Quantum Therapy, PC must be received in full at the time the treatment is rendered.

Motor vehichle accident insurance is accepted and can be billed directly through Quantum Therapy, PC.

Do I need a prescription?

The Oregon Board of Physical Therapy no longer requires a doctor's referral for PT. However, if you are planning to submit your reciepts to your insurance for reimbursement, they may require one. Please check with your insurance company before staring therapy.

What do I wear?

As far as attire, the more I can see and feel, the more efficient I can be. Treatment is performed on bare skin, so most patients simply wear their underwear. If you are more comfortable, elastic gym shorts and a tank top are fine, but should be loose enough to maneuver my hands under. Also, please refrain from applying body lotion on treatment day, as that makes it difficult to maintain good traction.

How many sessions will I need?

It is impossible to estimate how long a person will need treatment. Even with similar diagnoses, each patient is very individual in terms of chronicity and complexity of the problem, and responsiveness to the treatment. Effects of treatment are cumulative, so I like to provide 3-5 treatments close together, maybe once or twice a week. Once we see how your body is responding, you may choose alter the frequency. Each patient is unique in their needs, responsiveness, expectations and financial and time constraints, and we can work together to decide what is the best course of action. There is no protocol that must be followed and you are free to decide what works best for you.

How can I learn more about MFR?

John Barnes’ website, www.myofascialrelease.com, is an invaluable source of information. In particular, I suggest looking under “Articles” near the upper left hand corner of the navigation. There is also a chatline for MFR therapists and patients. Registration is free and easy, directly from John’s website. There you can post your own specific questions or simply read others’ queries and comments.

One of John Barnes’ senior therapists, Walt Fritz, has an excellent website that includes research articles relating to myofascial problems and treatment. The website address is: www.myofascialresource.com
