A new breed of physical therapy

 Heather Arlinghaus is a licensed Physical Therapist and operates her small private practice in Carmel, Indiana. She is not in network with insurance or medicare / medicaid. All her patients who see her for treatment pay her directly. This allows her to provide more efficient, effective, and no-nonsense treatment in your favor and on your schedule.  Your treatment is not limited to what insurance will allow.  Heather has the flexibility to treat you for more than one complaint or issue at a time, and to work with you in a proactive sense, preventing injury and loss of use in the future.  (unlike with insurance)

Do you have a mechanic work on your car for regular maintenance, tune-ups, or major replacements?  Well, Heather is your mechanic for your body, much like that for your car.  Don't wait until your engine seizes up to schedule an appointment for an oil change...the body needs regular maintenance just like your car.

Her broad skill set enables her to pinpoint the source of your symptoms and return you to pain-free movement and function. Her goal is to get you back to your daily activities, hobbies, and sports as soon as possible and without pain or limitation.

She practices a neuromuscular approach because you cannot separate these two systems (muscles and the nervous system). The nervous system must be addressed in order to make lasting changes in the muscles and other soft tissue. Heather has undergone significant additional training, and continues to learn more, in order to make this happen.  For more background on Heather visit her page "About Heather"  Visit the Client Center for information about scheduling your fist appointment. You can also view patient testimonials on this page!

No one likes to live in pain.  Even the smallest of pains is a significant warning sign.  Pain is a means with which the body communicates with us that something is wrong and needs to be addressed.  

Get in to see Heather as soon as you experience pain.  Sometimes the fix can be something very easy.  But if you prolong treatment it can develop into something much more complicated and even more painful.

Physical Therapy Services:

Physical Therapy services differ from Heather's other services in that:

  • they require your doctor to send a prescription 
  • you must have a doctor that can sign your plan of care for services requiring more than 24 calendar days of treatment
  • a superbill can be generated in order for you to submit your charges to your insurance company.

Loss of Motion
When our body is not working correctly it affects our ability to function normally.   

Pain and the inability to move can be very debilitating and interfere with our ability to enjoy our life. What if you can not longer:  

sit at a computer or drive a car
pick up and play with your grandkids
swing that golf club or carry your gym bag
walk your dog or go for a hike

Most of my customers will tell you that pain is one thing, but when it prevents me from enjoying the things I value in life, it is a big problem!

Don't become a victim and lose the ability to function.  Let Heather take a look at what's bothering you and get you back on the road to function.

Retirement Planning
What????   What could PT have to do with retirement planning?

Heather has seen it so many times, people work so hard and neglect to care for themselves because they are waiting for retirement.  But, when the day comes and they can finally play golf, exercise, relax, their body is wrecked, they are in pain, can't move, and certainly can't play golf or travel like they had planned.  By working with Heather you can prepare your body for retirement so that you will be able to enjoy it as you imagined!
