Where is Balancing Act Rehabilitation currently licensed?
Balancing Act Rehabilitation is currently licensed in Florida, New York, Oregon, and Texas. This means that as a patient, you must physically be in one of these states in order to receive care.
Why should I choose Balancing Act Rehabilitation?
Balancing Act Rehabilitation will provide evidence-based care to address your chief complaints. B.A.R also improves your accessibility to a specialized clinician and improves the convenience of receiving care by allowing for treatment from the comfort of your home. Your therapist will either come to you or see you through videoconferencing.
Do I need a referral from my doctor?
Fortunately, both Florida and New York allow for direct access to physical therapy services with some provisions. This means that patients can seek physical therapy services without a referral, but there are limitations that your therapist will explain during your appointment. Oregon allows unrestricted direct access to physical therapy services. If you are in the state of Texas, B.A.R. requires a referral prior to the onset of care.
What should I expect during my first appointment?
Your therapist will conduct an interview to learn more about your chief complaints and how they are affecting your daily life. Following the interview, your therapist will conduct an examination and then develop an individualized exercise program.
When using videoconferencing, is there anything that I need to do before my first appointment?
Ensure you have access to videoconferencing (a camera) via your computer, smart phone, or tablet.
Ensure you have access to a built-in microphone and speakers to allow for communication with your therapist.

How many sessions will I need?
The duration of sessions and length of care are individualized to each patient’s needs. Often, your success in therapy directly correlates to your compliance to the home exercise program provided. In other words, you can typically expect a shorter length of care if you regularly perform the recommended exercises. It is also important to note that some diagnoses require a longer course of care than others.
Does Balancing Act Rehabilitation accept insurance?
At this time, Balancing Act Rehabilitation accepts private pay only.
What does it cost?
An initial evaluation is $149. A follow-up 45-minute session is $79. Your credit card will be billed the evening of your appointment. If you are seen via a home visit (your therapist travels to you), additional travel expenses for your therapist may apply.
