What is the difference between PT/chiropractor/personal trainer?

Education primarily. PTís earn a clinical doctorate (Doctor of Physical Therapy) similar to a chiropractorís clinical doctorate (Doctor of Chiropractic). With PTs and chiropractors, the focus of our education and treatment is different. PTís focus on rehabilitation in the forms of manual therapy, corrective exercise, body mechanics and patient education with the goal of empowering the patient for long-term success. Some chiropractors do some of those elements but some are much more reactive in treating symptoms. Chiropractors focus on joints and the nervous systems with manipulations and adjustments which may not have long-term results unless married with some form of rehabilitation like corrective exercises. A personal trainer is not a degree but rather a certification that provides training in creating exercise programs to help individuals meet specific health or performance related goals.

How long do people attend PT on average?

This is a very difficult question to answer as every patient and every condition is different how much attention it may require. Some conditions can be successfully treated in a few weeks and others may take a few to several months. Once evaluated, your physical therapist can better answer this question as it applies to you.

Does the clinic take patients from the community? Can you treat children?

We do see community members outside of the Marquette community. We do see pre-adolescent and adolescent children primarily for orthopedic issues.

What insurances are accepted?

All insurances are accepted with the exception of Medicare/Medicaid. The extent of coverage for physical therapy services varies depending on your plan and coverages. Our front office staff will verify benefits and share this information with patients as a courtesy service.

What is your relationship to the PT department/educational program?
