Healcove functional movement therapies keep you moving well.



Playing with the kids. Wrestling in bed. Putting away groceries. Unpredictable life movements can catch you off guard. Healcove functional training prepares you for the unexpected.

Our patients are everyday people who occasionally get hurt from everyday routines. Others have pain from trauma, poor posture, muscle imbalances, nerve damage, and post-surgery complications.

Our functional movement doctors are physical therapists specializing in Applied Functional Science (AFS). AFS training uses functional biomechanics to assess and treat the root cause of movement and mobility dysfunction.

Do you take insurance or Medicare for functional movement therapy services?

The short answer is, no, we do not. Below explains why.

At Healcove, providing you the highest quality of care possible is a priority. We want to ensure you get the most out of your treatments and achieve your goals. Individual hands-on attention by your physical therapist throughout every session is required to achieve this level of care.

Meanwhile, insurance companies continue to significantly reduce payment to physical therapists, while increasing the burden of paperwork and time required to receive payment. This forces many therapy clinics to reduce the cost of doing business by limiting your time with a qualified physical therapist to 20 minutes or less, and using minimally trained aides for exercise supervision and modalities. This is not how we operate at Healcove, and you will feel the difference!

We choose to dedicate our time to work directly with and for you, rather than for your insurance company. You will be alongside the therapist throughout each session and will never be handed off to an aide or assistant, or left to do exercises unattended. If you want high quality care that works, you will find it at Healcove!

Do you take FSA or HSA for functional movement therapy services?

Yes, we accept both. In some cases, we need to give you a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) that you can submit to your HR department for eligibility approval.

When should I see a functional movement expert?

At our clinic, functional movement training (a less rigid and mechanistic form of physical therapy) is the rehabilitative bridge between pain relief and strength training. Once you are able to manage pain and ready to improve functional movement, physical therapy session(s) are for you. Some clients get prescribed Physical Therapy by their primary physician or other specialists.
