Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physician’s referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.


“I can say only nice things about everyone here. The therapy helped me so much. I had my doubts when I first started, but now I can say I would not be this far if had not been for Steve and Monte working with me so patiently. It was a good workout but they made it fun. The ladies helped me with my schedule, always friendly. The area was always very clean. Will miss all of the work and my new friends! If I ever need therapy I will be back here and will recommend to everyone.”

P. Crispo

“This is my second time taking physical therapy from Monte & Steve. The first time for my lower back. I still do the exercises they gave me whenever I feel I’ve tightened up. This time with frozen shoulder, it has improved even faster. The exercises and time given to teach me, plus the massage with the heat really have made a HUGE difference. I will definitely return and have referred my daughter to date. Will continue to recommend others.”

C. LeCroy

“The therapists at LifeStrides are knowledgeable, skilled and encouraging. The support staff are always pleasant and accommodating. This is my third experience with physical therapy. Rehabilitation is not always easy or painless, but the professional therapists at LifeStrides make it fun. Patients forget their difficulties as they are drawn into light conversation. We do our best to insult our therapists, and we all have fun and they just keep encouraging us. Monte and Greg know how to push patients to progress without pushing to the point of discouragement. I highly recommend LifeStrides at every opportunity. “

G.R. Jr

“I have had physical therapy on 3 different occasions and this is the second of the three I have had her at LifeStrides in the last 3 years. I feel I have had the very best therapy possible on my back with my therapist Steve. I have referred different friends here so I really recommend it to anyone who needs physical therapy.”

M. Edmondson

“After Dealing with pretty constant back and leg pain for 4-5 weeks I sought help from the LifeStrides PT Group. The therapist was very professional in evaluating the problem and developed exercises for me to do at my appointments as well as at home. The focus was strengthening muscles and range of motion. I especially enjoyed the atmosphere and interaction of patients with the therapists to the end that exercising was totally fun. I highly recommend this PT group.”

D. Goldsmith

“My experience at LifeStrides was a super one on many levels. Steve and Monte have always been most pleasant and go the “extra mile” to explain and inform the physiology of my pain and how to maintain a comfort level. I so appreciate the small and personal atmosphere of this facility. I’ve always been treated as if they were there just for me! Thank you.”

G. Shick

“Everyone in this facility is very professional and has extreme knowledge of their profession. Monte and Steve are excellent. I would highly recommend them to others!”

J. Lodes

“Every part of my physical therapy was above my expectation. I was treated with the utmost respect and courtesy. Thanks to you ALL.”

G. Littleton

“I had very professional care. I received lots of praise for my efforts, which made me want to work harder. I enjoyed the playful banter between the staff and clientele. It made a very boring process more pleasant. They did an excellent job!”

D. Johnson

“I do not believe I could have moved my arm if it had not been for therapy. They were very nice and helpful. Always.”

P. Sellers

“I wish I had begun therapy sooner. Instead I waited a year before consulting my doctor. With their knowledge of simple movements my pain is gone in my shoulder and getting their for my hip.”

W. Prater

“Outstanding service, therapists were professional but made it enjoyable. Would highly recommend LifeStrides to other for physical therapy”
