At Mizzou Therapy Services we have therapists who specialize in all areas of therapy. Our clinicians work with patients to recover from impairments and injuries. We provide therapies that focus on returning to daily activities as well as increasing mobility and motion. We specialize in the following areas of therapy:
What do I bring to my outpatient therapy session?
- Referral from your doctor
- Insurance card
- Co-payment if you have one
If you currently wear braces, orthotics or splints, please bring them to your visit to allow our therapist to perform a full and thorough evaluation.
If we are evaluating your child for equipment or positioning, please bring your child’s current equipment, including wheelchair and car seat.
What do I wear to my outpatient therapy session?
Please wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. If we are evaluating you for injuries or illness affecting the lower body or for walking skills, please wear or bring shorts.
If we are seeing you for serial casting, please wear stretchy or loose-fitting pants to allow for removal after the cast is applied.
Will my insurance cover my therapy?
We are contracted with most insurance carriers. Prior to starting therapy we verify your insurance benefits and will be able to assist you in gaining information on what your insurance requires you to pay. You may be responsible for a co-payment amount per visit, a co-insurance or a deductible amount, depending on the agreement between you and your insurance carriers. Prior to starting physical therapy, we recommend calling your insurance carrier to determine what your specific plan will cover.
How much does therapy cost?
Charges at each visit may vary depending on the treatment provided. If you do not have insurance or are paying out-of-pocket, please call for specific pricing or discuss with your therapist at your first visit.
I’m going to be an inpatient; do I need anything for therapy?
It will be helpful to you and your therapist to know what durable medical equipment — such as walkers, crutches and beside commodes — you can access.
If possible, bring loose-fitting, comfortable clothing to wear when you are discharged from the hospital.
Plan ahead to have assistance at home after your hospital discharge and know how long you will have this assistance available.
It may be helpful to make arrangements to stay on the first floor of your home if you have a multi-level house.
Is there any prep for feeding clinic?
If we are seeing your child for feeding therapy, please make sure your child is hungry. If possible, do not feed your child for two hours before the visit. Please bring from home a food your child will usually eat and one food your child will usually not eat.
