Healcove functional movement therapies keep you moving well.

 

HOW WE HELP

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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

We do not accept insurance or Medicare for these services because insurance companies have created novel ways not to pay for services, requiring time consuming reporting which they can then deny claims, and many more loopholes limiting YOUR care.

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.
