This section answers several common questions.  If your concern is not addressed here please call or email us.  And, if you think we should include another FAQ on this page, please let us know.

  • What conditions do you treat?
    BPT NV is an orthopedic physical therapy clinic. We treat almost anything involving muscles, joints, ligaments, connective tissue, and nerves. All these conditions -- and many more -- are in our wheelhouse: 🟣 All sports injuries (e.g., muscle tears and sprains, broken bones, ligament and tendon strains and ruptures). 🟣 Orthopedic post-surgical rehabilitation (e.g., rotator cuff repairs; knee surgery; hip, knee, and shoulder replacements; Achilles tendon repairs). 🟣 Foot, knee, hip, back, shoulder, and neck pain. 🟣 Sciatica (pain radiating down the leg). 🟣 Many types of headaches. 🟣 Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain and dysfunction. 🟣 Range of motion and flexibility limitations. 🟣 Gait abnormalities. 🟣 Vertigo and other balance problems. 🟣 Scoliosis.
  • What is NeuroKinetic therapy and why do you offer it?
    NeuroKinetic Therapy is a unique treatment protocol designed to unravel the causes of painful, dysfunctional movement patterns and correct them by "reprogramming" the Motor Control Center in the cerebellum. Over decades of practice, we have found that simply treating a painful, weak, or dysfunctional body part or physical structure without fully understanding the root of the problem leaves patients with problems that never go away. For every area of pain or painful movement pattern there is always an over working (facilitated) structure and an under working (inhibited) structure. NKT uses a system of precise muscle tests to determine which anatomical structures are involved and how they are compensating for one another. Once this very careful diagnostic work is completed, individualized treatment plans are devised. These tailored treatments are done by your Physical Therapist during in-office sessions and "home work" is assigned to allow you to continue progressing on your own between sessions. This process corrects the underlying problems permanently and results in lasting pain relief and restored healthy function, strength and movement. Other interventions including massage, joint manipulation, injections, nerve blocks, stretching, strengthening, taping, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation can provide temporary relief but do not address the cause of the problem, allowing pain to return. NKT is the best intervention we know of to provide permanent relief. That is why, after studying other therapeutic disciplines and interventions for decades, we have focused years of time and energy learning, practicing, and now also teaching NKT. So, even if you have suffered for a long time, NeuroKinetic Therapy can rescue you. This discipline is so amazingly effective it inspired our slogan: "Be SURE of the CURE."
  • Tell me about your Class 4 therapeutic laser.
    Most Physical Therapists use weak Class 3 lasers that have limited value. The maximum amount of energy a Class 3 laser can deliver is 0.5 watts. In contrast, BPT NV's Class 4 laser can deliver as much as 100 watts of energy. It's laser light is tuned to penetrate skin, muscle, and other tissue and can reach as much as 12 inches into the body. This allows the laser light to treat structures (like hip joints) other therapies cannot effect. Class 4 laser light energizes ATP (the energy source for all human cells) and speeds healing, reduces inflammation, and supercharges cellular regeneration. BPT NV's new Diowave Class 4 laser is state of the art with the latest and greatest European laser engine and an Artificial Intelligence interface that leverages clinical experience with thousands of patients to specifically tailor and modify treatment parameters (wattage, wavelength, pulse frequency, and duration) for each patient at each successive session. The Diowave laser is called a "Stealth Laser" because it is tuned to a wavelength that reacts very little to water and hemoglobin and can therefore deliver tremendous amounts of light energy to specific anatomical structures without pain or noticeable heat. (Earlier 940 nanometer Class 4 lasers significantly heated the treated tissue and could even cause burns at 20 watts of energy and above if the operator was well trained and careful.) The Diowave laser is also stealthy in the sense that post-treatment results are normally most apparent 24 to 48 hours after each treatment.
  • How do I book an appointment?
    You can book your initial consultation or follow-up visits directly on this website. To do so, click on the "Book Now" button on the Book PT page and select the date and time you would like to reserve. This will send a message to us and once you receive an email accepting your request you will receive an email with a payment link. NOTE: YOUR APPOINTMENT IS NOT CONFIRMED UNTIL YOU HAVE PREPAID FOR THE SERVICE. If this seems impossibly complicated, you can also just call or email us directly and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
  • What should I wear to my PT session?
    Please wear workout clothes or other loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to remove or open to allow access to the body part being treated. (For example, knee patients should ideally wear shorts and women with shoulder issues should wear sports bras if possible.)
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    If you cancel your prepaid appointment more than 24 hours in advance you can apply your payment to a rescheduled visit or request a full refund. No shows and cancellations less than 24 hours before your appointment will be charged in full since we rarely can rebook the time we have reserved for you. (If your late cancellation is due to an unanticipated medical problem or personal emergency please let us know and we may be able to make an exception to this policy.)
