What is Cash Based Concierge Physical Therapy?

Let’s say that you have a muscle strain from playing your favorite sport, and now you’re looking to heal with the help of physical therapy. One visit can turn into several visits, and now you have to deal with the hassle of insurance payments. Not only that, but you are now limited as to what type of treatments your therapist can provide for you. Thankfully, Llin Physical therapy is here to help. We offer Cash-Based Concierge Physical Therapy Midtown to all of our patients. 


What is Cash-Based Concierge Physical Therapy?


Cash-based healthcare is a platform where you have customized payments for physical therapy, which typically makes PT much more affordable and effective. Most insurance providers charge their clients’ monthly fees or force them to pay copays when they see doctors or specialists. On average, copays can cost around $45, and if you are seeing a therapist 2 times a week for a month, those copays can definitely add up quickly. Additionally, therapists can be limited by what forms of treatment they can provide patients based on what their insurance provider is willing to cover.


With cash based physical therapy Midtown East at Llin, our clinician is not limited to treating you based solely on what your insurance is willing to pay. This is beneficial to patients because they can receive all optimal treatments offered and potentially improve their condition. In some cases, insurance providers may determine that your condition no longer requires treatment and refuse to continue to make payments even though you continue to experience pain and discomfort. This is precisely where cash based physical therapy Midtown East can benefit you!



What Other Benefits Does Llin PT Provide Patients?


One of the great benefits of visiting with our expert staff at Llin Physical Therapy is that we also have a mobile app that makes booking appointments simple. With the app, patients can schedule appointments that work best for them. The app also allows patients to do some of the following:

  • Book a wellness program (One-on-one sessions to help improve strength and conditioning).

Telehealth physical therapy can provide you with great ways to relieve chronic pains from sports injuries.

Exercises For Knee Pain


If you experience any knee pain, these exercises may be beneficial to you. Knee issues may include a hard time balancing, sharp knee pain, pain when you move your leg. If you have any of these symptoms, these may work for you!

  • Quadriceps Stretch- Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Next, Bend one leg towards your back and hold it with the corresponding hand. Hold for 10 seconds, then switch to the other side.

  • Half Squat- Stand with your feet about a foot apart. Keep your back straight and sit into a squatting position. Hold this stretch for 15 seconds.

  • Leg Extensions- Sit in a chair with your feet on the ground. Next, straighten one leg and then put it back down. Do this as many times as you can for each leg.



Exercises For Hip Pain


Hip pain is very common and can be extremely painful. These exercises target your hips and not only stretch them but they can also strengthen your hips!

  • Side Leg Raises- Lay down on your side with your legs straight out. Lift the leg that is closest to the ceiling as far as you can and put it back down. Do this as many times as you can on each side.

  • Glute Lifts- Lay on your stomach with both legs straight. Lift one leg straight towards the ceiling as far as you can. 

  • Hamstring Curl- Stand straight with both feet on the ground. Curl one leg backward at the knee, bringing your foot towards the ceiling.


Exercises For Your Shoulders


Just like hip pain, shoulder pain is very common. It can be caused by many day-to-day activities or even just bad posture. These shoulder exercises can help relieve this pain if they are done often:

  • Superman- This exercise is done laying on your stomach. Its name comes from the position of your body, it looks as if you’re flying like superman. From this position, you will lift your arms and legs while keeping your stomach planted on the ground.

  • Scapular Rotation- Stand straight and without shrugging your shoulders, lift your arm at a 45-degree angle and lift as high as you can without moving your shoulders. 

  • Shoulder Tap- Get into a push-up position. You will stay with your arms straight and instead of pushing up and down, you will tap your left hand to your right shoulder. Repeat for both sides 10 times each.
