At Mizzou therapy services we specialize in all areas of therapy. Our clinicians work with the whole body to aid patients  in their recovery from injuries or impairments, providing a range of therapies from daily activities to mobility and return to sport. Mizzou therapy services specializes in the following areas:

What do I Bring to my Outpatient Therapy Session?

  • Referral from your doctor
  • Insurance Card
  • Copayment if you have one

If you currently wear braces, orthotics, or splints, please bring them to your visit to allow our therapist to perform a full and thorough evaluation.

If we are evaluating your child for equipment or positioning, please bring your child's current equipment, including wheelchair and car seat.

What do I Wear to my Outpatient Therapy Session?

Comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. If we are evaluating you for injuries or illness affecting the lower body or for walking skills, please wear or bring shorts.

Serial Casting - If we are seeing you for serial casting, please wear stretchy and/or loose fitting pants to allow for removal, once the cast is applied.

Will my Insurance Cover my Therapy?

We are contracted with most insurance carriers. Prior to starting therapy we verify your insurance benefits and will be able to assist you gaining information on what your insurance requires you to pay. You may be responsible for a co-payment amount per visit, a co-insurance, or a deductible amount, dependent on the agreement between you and your insurance carriers. Prior to starting physical therapy, we recommend calling your insurance carrier to determine what your specific plan will cover.

How Much Does Therapy Cost?

Charges at each visit may vary depending on the treatment provided. If you do not have insurance or are paying out of pocket, please call for specific pricing or discuss with your therapist at your first visits.

I'm Going to be an Inpatient; Do I need Anything for Therapy?

It would be helpful to you and your therapist to know what durable medical equipment (walkers, crutches, beside commodes) you have access to.

If possible bring some loose fitting, comfortable clothing, that you will discharge home in.

Plan ahead to have assistance at home after your discharge and know how long assistance will be available to you.

It may be helpful to make arrangements to stay on the first floor of your home if you have a multi-level house.

Is There Any Prep for Feeding Clinic?

If we are seeing your child for feeding therapy, please make sure your child is hungry (if possible, do not feed your child for two hours before the visit). Please bring from home a food your child usually will eat and one they usually will not eat.
