What sets The Mobility Doctor apart from an ordinary physical therapy practice?

At the initial examination you will receive a thorough examination to determine all contributing factors to your movement dysfunction. Follow-up treatment sessions will always be with Dr. Jameson and will consist of one-on-one, individualized interventions tailored to your specific needs.

How do I know if this is right for me?

If you are experiencing pain, limited strength or mobility that is impairing your ability to fully participate in demands of daily life, athletics, or hobbies you will benefit from a tailored physical therapy experience that will guide you to reaching, and maintaining, your optimal level of physical performance.

If you are unsure how to proceed with progressing in an active lifestyle safely, or desire to be proactive in maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle while preventing physical decline, pain or injury, you will likely benefit from functional physical therapy.

If you are a Medicare recipient and would like professional guidance from The Mobility Doctor for a wellness and fitness program please don’t hesitate to email or call to discuss your options.

Do I need a doctor’s referral?

No. In North Carolina physical therapists function under the rule of “direct access”, meaning: you do not need a doctor’s referral and can see a physical therapist as a primary healthcare provider. Physical therapists are qualified and permitted to provide a patient with a treatment diagnosis, establish an appropriate care plan, and safely implement treatment without a medical doctor’s order. Additionally, physical therapists are able to determine when physical therapy is not suitable for a patient and refer them to the appropriate healthcare professional.

Do you take insurance?

The Mobility Doctor is a fee-for-service practice requesting payment made at time of services rendered. We do not bill insurance but will provide a superbill that you may submit to your insurance company for any available reimbursement. You are responsible for understanding your insurance benefits.

If you have Medicare and do not require medically necessary physical therapy treatment, The Mobility Doctor can provide services under a fitness and wellness model in which you will be guided through individualized programming to achieve your lifestyle and recreational goals. You will not be able to submit to Medicare for  reimbursement.
