What To Expect

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3


Book a free Discovery Call

Visit the Contact Us Page and answer a few questions so our team can reach out to you as soon as possible. During the Discovery Call, you’ll speak directly to a physical therapist who will get to know more about you and your concerns and explain more about how we can best help you.


Schedule an evaluation

Our 90 minute evaluations involve comprehensive diagnostic workups including movement analysis, strength and mobility testing, gait and running assessments on the treadmill, and sport-specific testing for our athletes. By the end of the evaluation, you will know the root cause of your pain so that we can begin to address it from Day 1.


Get back to doing YOU!

Treatment sessions are 60 minutes and are always one on one with your Doctor of Physical Therapy. When you’ve completed your program with us, you will leave with an understanding of why you were in pain in the first place and a set of tools for getting out of pain, continuing to move well, and staying out of pain in the future. Many clients continue working with us for regular check-ins to stay on track with their goals long after they are out of pain.


Do you take insurance?

We are out-of-network providers. Rather than letting the traditional insurance-based model dictate your care, we are able to work with you in the way that we know we should. Here’s our Athletic Lab promise to you:

  1. All sessions will be one on one for 60 mins with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. We’ll never pass you off to an assistant or tech.
  2. Your PT program will be designed by your Physical Therapist based on what’s best for you and your goals, not just what your insurance will cover.
  3. Cost-Transparency: You’ll know exactly how much your plan will cost from Day 1. No weekly co-pays or unexpected bills in the mail.
  4. Wholistic Approach to Health with YOU at the center: Rather than just treating your pain, we will get to the root cause of your pain and treat your whole body as a system.
  5. Access to your PT in between sessions: If you have questions or something comes up, you can reach out to your PT directly for answers.

Can I submit visits to my insurance for reimbursement?

Yes. Your sessions at Athletic Lab will count towards your out of network deductible, and our services are covered by some insurance plans after your deductible has been met. We’ll provide you with superbills on our client platform to streamline the process for you and help you to get reimbursed!

What should I wear for my first appointment?

Shoes and clothes you can move in. Sweats, leggings, shorts, and athletic shoes.

Do I need a prescription?

No. All Californians have Direct Access to Physical Therapy meaning you can be evaluated and treated by a doctor of physical therapy without a referral from your primary care doctor.

Can I use FSA or HSA?
