Explanation of Physical Therapy Services
Posabilities treats patients aged 12 to 100+. We specialize in working with older adults and individuals with mobility and balance challenges, chronic pain and health issues, and pelvic floor dysfunction, as well as individuals recovering from orthopedic and total joint surgeries. All physical therapy services are provided by Katey Hawes, MS, PT, C-IAYT, E-RYT500. Katey works in partnership with her patients to develop treatment plans based on their individual needs and goals.
Free consultations are available.
Prior to beginning therapy you can schedule a free consultation with Katey to discuss your condition and what services might be most appropriate, as well as what a possible treatment plan might look like. At that meeting, we can also review any insurance coverage that you may have and what your expected out of pocket cost might be.
