Medicare rules and requirements are changing weekly and other insurance coverages are also changing. One insurance study is showing that allowing patients to access physical therapy first for musculoskeletal problems, even before a doctor, results in 50% less cost and shorter delays in care. This is something that pleases both the insurance companies and patients. Even Medicare is allowing patients to see physical therapists without a medical referral.
At any rate, in order to stay in business in today’s healthcare climate, Yonemoto Physical Therapy is reducing the size of its facility. The lease has been renegotiated and all equipment, furniture and staff will be located under one roof at its 55 S. Raymond Ave, Suite 100, Alhambra location. This means that our gym is smaller but adequate. Unfortunately, we had to give up our pool. At this time, it is not certain who will be taking over the 25 S. Raymond Ave, Suite 100 space, but we are recommending patients contact the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center, local gyms with pools and the YMCA for their therapeutic pool needs.
We thanks you for your patronage and hope to continue servicing your physical therapy needs. We also hope to expand services to you that will optimize your health with the qigong (chi gong) classes (an ancient Chinese exercise to improve organ health and longevity), our weight loss program, our detoxification and nutritional services, and our allied services of acupuncture and facial/body wraps to enhance detoxification and health.
The goal of Yonemoto Physical Therapy is to provide physical therapy services to optimize movement and function for enhanced living as well as transitioning a practice that has focused on body repair to now include a focus on maximizing wellness. It is our belief that life is better when you are full of vitality and that it is possible to lead a full and happy life with a healthy lifestyle.
