Frequently asked questions
WHat does back on track do?
Simply put: we are problem solvers. If you or a family member gets hurt and can't exercise or compete, we will be your advisor and guide. Oftentimes you may feel confused and conflicted on how to move forward.
You may have many questions. Do you need surgery? Will you need injections or pain medications? Is this something that will fix itself with rest? We will are here to help you find the answers.
We have extensive training in human movement and natural healing. We use exercise and other hands-on approaches to facilitate your bodies own healing. Your body is talking to you and will often tell you what it needs. We will help you hear what your body is telling you.
Returning to sports and exercise requires preparation. Each sport has specific physical requirements and we'll prepare you for the loads and stresses of running, jumping and hitting.
We also help people who are suffering from chronic aches, pain, and stiffness. The goal is to help them move freely again, to be able to bend and stretch without pain.
What should I expect?
We will start off with a full body evaluation, movement assessment, and hands-on evaluation. This allows us to find out the root cause of your problem.
Then, we will use hands-on treatment such as deep-tissue massage, dry needling or cupping, combined with exercises designed to relax and repair painful areas. We also give you a brief exercise program which will help keep you moving and feeling well, and out of the doctor's office.
How Quickly Should I Expect Results?
There are two ways physical therapy can help: mentally and physically. Any good PT will help relieve your worries. Our team will start by listening to you, hearing your concerns, and then helping you understand what’s happening. Usually this is all complete in the first 10 to 15 minutes of your session!
After we talk through what you’re dealing with, the physical problem needs to be addressed. The time this takes to heal will depend on your age, how long you’ve had the issue, and how severe it is. Typically, people find some sort of comfort and relief within two to four weeks, unless the person would have long-standing problems, a severe injury, or is recovering from surgery.
Don't I need a Referral or prescription?
No. In many states including Ohio, you are not required to see your doctor prior to starting PT. This means that you can get started on the road to recovery faster and for less money than ever before!
We are able to see anyone with or without a physician’s referral. Just give us a call and book an appointment. If you’re willing to invest in your health, you’re very welcome to come see us, and we would LOVE to take great care of you.
How Soon Can I Get In?
Our goal is to get people in within 24 hours, and often times we are able to squeeze people in the same day.
How Long is a Treatment Session?
This will depend on your condition. Typically, you should expect a session to run about 45 minutes, give or take a few minutes. If you are a more severe case, it may be a little longer.
