PT Plus has been a lifesaver. When I started with PT Plus I was walking like I needed a walker and traditional PT wasn’t helping. My hips were in so much pain I wasn’t even sure where the pain was coming from. My therapist has really worked magic to alleviate the pain and help me progress to walking more normal. I like that she isn’t just focused on the hips but understands how the whole body works together. I’m not fully fixed yet but I feel so much more positive about how I can get there.

According to a 2022 American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) consumer research report, among the given reasons for skipping a physical therapy referral, nonusers selected cost, time and convenience as the top barriers. While these barriers all hold true for certain individuals, we do our best at PT Plus to meet your needs and help overcome these obstacles.
Non physical therapy users stated they could not afford the care or their insurance did not cover the services needed. PT Plus is in network with most major insurance providers. As part of our service, we have an Insurance Specialist who will verify your benefits, and can give you an estimate on what you can expect for PT Plus services. We accept HSA/FSA for all services provided. If we are out of network, we also offer discounted self-pay rates to help ease the financial burden and allow you to continue receiving the care you need.
Non physical therapy users stated lack of scheduling availability caused them to not come in for the care they required. PT Plus clinic hours vary by location, but are generally open from 8AM - 5PM, Monday - Friday. Our therapists work hard to make sure they are available to meet your needs. If we don't have availability that fits within your schedule, let us know and we'll see how else we can help.
Non physical therapy users stated the distance from work or home to a clinic being too far lead them to not pursue physical therapy. PT Plus has eight clinic locations across southeast Wisconsin, spanning across five counties. We are always looking to expand into new areas to bring high quality physical therapy to citizens throughout Wisconsin.
The Value of Physical Therapy at PT Plus
We believe that everyone should have a PT on your team, just like you do a primary care doctor or a dentist. The APTA defines physical therapists as movement experts who improve quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care and patient education. Who couldn't use someone like that in their life?
At PT Plus, our therapists work with you to build a relationship, listen to your story, and treat you in a unique way so that you are able to see and feel the difference. Through our treatment sessions we can change your function. Our goal is to change your function, not necessarily your pain and as you start to function better, your pain will likely also get better.
We want to know - what is your plan, what are your goals? Whether you are trying to play with your grandkids, compete in competitive sports, or simply get out of bed with less pain, we are here to help. Life is a contact sport - stuff happens. How will you manage little setbacks that might occur during the process of you reaching your goals? The body has the ability to heal, so what are your parameters to come see a PT Plus physical therapist? If your pain doesn't subside in 48 hours, come see us and we may be able to help you with 1-2 visits and give you the tools to continue improving outside of the clinic. Manage your overall health and wellness in a way that addresses the issues before they become chronic.
Allow PT Plus to become a partner on your wellness journey!
