In New York State, you may legally receive physical therapy without a doctor’s referral for up to 30 days or 10 visits, whichever comes first. If treatment is still needed after that point, you must obtain a referral or prescription before continuing therapy. We can help refer you to an orthopedist that would be a good fit for you if you need one. (Some insurance plans may elect not to pay for physical therapy without a prescription in the first place. We'll call your insurance company before your first appointment to verify that that they'll pay and let you know if there are any issues.)

Obviously this depends on the specific nature of your injury, which we can better determine by the end of your first appointment. Most people come in for physical therapy 2-3 times per week for 4-6 weeks for less serious injuries, and up to several months for more severe injuries.

Athalon accepts most major insurance carriers. A more complete list can be found here.

Without insurance, the initial evaluation costs $150 and every subsequent appointment costs $100.

We try very hard to keep you with the same physical therapist for every appointment. We will never schedule with a different therapist without you first agreeing to it.

We require 24 hours of advance notice for cancelled appointments. If you cancel your appointment on the same day, or "no-show," there is a $75 Late Cancel Fee. This will be waived if you reschedule your missed appointment for another time during the same week.

Information about our location and hours can be found here.

We treat primarily orthopedic conditions, meaning injuries to bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons. There are also some neurological conditions that fit under the scope of our practice. Read more about the kinds of injuries we specialize in here, or contact us to speak to someone in person.

Yes, we have a changing room with lockers for your street clothing and valuables. We also have a shower if you want to clean up before going back to work.
