Telephone Consultation – Free
We screen most patients calling for an appointment to ensure that they are likely a candidate for myoskeletal work and that no physician referral is necessary before we proceed further. This way, the person doesn’t spend money for no good reason. The telephone consultation takes 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the complexity of patient’s complaints, symptoms, medical history, nature and extent of injury, etc.
A candidate for treatment may be referred to their physician or one of our suggestion for any of the following reasons:
- Determination of contraindications or restrictions of care
- Medical file
- Other type of treatment prior to being seen here
Someone may also be referred after their First Visit Assessment for the same reasons.
First Visit Assessment – $125
Except in certain cases, we prefer not to treat without a Treatment Plan. Patients looking to be seen in our clinic will schedule a First Visit Assessment. During this visit, we’re looking for gross compensation patterns. The Assessment includes the following:
- Health history and consultation
- Functional movement assessment
- Related orthopedic tests and palpation
- Our Myoskeletal Assessment
- Question and answer period
- Review of radiology reports and imaging
A treatment plan will then be created based on patient’s complaints and evaluation of assessment, and the patient will receive the comprehensive Assessment and Treatment Plan to share with their physician or to keep for themselves. Occasionally, patients may be able to receive reimbursement from their health insurance carrier for Myoskeletal massage treatments. Their insurance company may wish to receive a copy of the Assessment.
New patients may wish to purchase one of our Protocol Care Plans after their Assessment. These Plans are designed for new patients only.
Clinical Massage – 60 minutes – $75, 90 minutes – $110
Treatments begin after all assessments are completed and follow the Treatment Plan. Typically, the first session following the First Visit Assessment is made for 90 minutes, but is not required. This allows for a full treatment session of at least 60 minutes as well as re-testing, further testing, and specifically targeted soft tissue palpation drawn from gross patterns observed during the initial assessment. After that, the timing is up to the patient.
Current patients may wish to purchase one of our Loyalty Plans.
Re-Evaluation/Re-Assessment – 60 minutes – $99
This procedure may be required by your physician or insurance company after a specified number of treatment sessions or we may require it after the first 3 or 4 sessions to objectively gauge your progress. We want to get you back doing what you love doing, and a Re-Evaluation may be necessary to fulfill that goal.
Note: We re-assess each patient every office visit before beginning treatment as a matter of course. However, that is not the Re-Evaluation described in this section.
Urgent Care – 60 minutes – $75
This service is intended for urgent treatment of non-assessed patients during business hours only. If a sudden musculoskeletal condition arises for a person, they may wish to be treated without the full First Visit Assessment. A consultation and partial assessment will still be conducted to ensure no contraindications are present before treatment.
Urgent Care After Hours – Up to 60 minutes – $110
The same care for non-assessed patients outside of normal business hours. This may take up to one hour and is intended for emergency care only. Examples are sudden muscle strain from lifting an object; exacerbated known musculoskeletal medical conditions such as sacroiliac joint dysfunction after bending and twisting; migraine headache; sudden stiff neck (“cricks”); a sports injury such as a pulled shoulder muscle, etc.
Fees are due at time of service. New patients pay upon checking in. Payment may be made in cash or by credit/debit card. We also accept payments from some Health Savings Account cards, but acceptance of this option is governed by your account program. If patient’s HSA payment is declined, patient remains responsible for payment.
Please be aware that Manchester-Bedford Myoskeletal does not accept health insurance, Worker’s Compensation, or Automobile Accident insurance at this time.
However, patients may be able to file claims with their insurance company directly. Please call your insurance carrier or speak with your benefits representative to determine what information they require to reimburse you and we will provide it to you.
Please be aware that we are unable to provide a diagnosis. If a diagnosis is required for reimbursement, your physician must provide that letter to you.
