FAQS

 

CAN I USE MY INSURANCE?

Full Circle Physical Therapy and Wellness is an out-of-network provider and does not contract with any insurance companies. This means we can provide one-on-one care with longer appointment times to give you the care you truly deserve. A superbill (itemized list of services) for physical therapy treatments can be provided upon request for Minnesota residents to submit to out-of-network benefits.

CAN I USE MY FSA OR HSA?

Yes. We accept FSA, HSA, credit cards, cash, and check.

DO I NEED A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL?

No. You can see a physical therapist without a referral for up to 90 days in the state of Minnesota. After 90 days, a referral is required. If you have a referral, please bring a copy to your first appointment and we will fax your provider your physical therapy consultation.

COVID-19 POLICIES?

Masks are required by both the patient and physical therapist for the entire duration of care. Dr. Kellen is also fully vaccinated.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Clothing that is comfortable and allows for ease of movement. If working specifically on core muscles for diastasis recti, a sports bra may also be helpful for further assessment of the abdomen.

WHAT IS THE PELVIC FLOOR?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in both women and men that support the bladder, bowel, and uterus in women. It is a “hammock” of muscles from the pubic bone in front to the tailbone in back and between your two sit bones. The pelvic floor muscles are the bottom portion of the “core” that also work with deep abdominals, back, and the diaphragm (breathing muscle) for stabilization. This muscle group also helps with bladder, bowel, and sexual function.

IS A PELVIC FLOOR EXAM REQUIRED?

A physical therapy pelvic floor exam assesses the strength and coordination of the pelvic floor muscles, along with surrounding muscle groups. There are many options for a pelvic floor exam including internal, external, or visual assessment. Dr. Kellen will explain all options in detail and help you decide which exam is best for you. It is your choice to not have any type of pelvic floor exam and to change your mind at any time.
