If you are confused about how to get yourself out of pain and back to doing what you love, then you’ve found the right place. Our physical therapy process is a simple process that walks you through the stages of healing and teaches you how to get back to living life.

Here’s what you need to do to get started:

1. Schedule an appointment

OR Just Call us at (714) 902-9349

2. Register

  • The easiest way to do this is online here.
  • You can also do it the old fashioned way and come in a little early on your first visit and fill out paperwork here

Here’s some more information about our clinic.

Insurance Verification

  • We are in-network with most PPO insurances.  However, as of 2015 we are no longer in-network with CIGNA due to the changes they have made to their provider network.  However you can still come to therapy here using your Out-of-Network Benefits.
  • Here is a list of PPO insurances we are IN-NETWORK with:

    • Anthem Blue Cross
    • Blue Shield
    • Aetna
    • United Healthcare
    • Tricare
    • Health Net
    • Medicare

    We also take the followinf forms of insurance/payment:

    • Worker’s Compensation
    • Lien (Taken on a case-by-case basis)
    • Cash payment
  • As a courtesy, we will call your insurance company to verify your physical therapy benefits.  However, we recommend you call them yourself so you are aware of what your insurance plan provides.  Here are the questions to ask:
  1. What is my deductible and how much have I met?
  2. What is my co-pay or co-insurance for outpatient physical therapy?
  3. How many visits am I allowed?  Can I receive more if needed?
  4. Do I need any pre-authorization?
  5. Do I need a physician referral?

We are located at the corner of Goldenwest and Edinger, across the street from Goldenwest College.  We are in the same shopping center at Toys R Us, but we are located right on Edinger, with our windows looking at the college.  We are next door to Copy4Less.


What do I need to bring to my first visit?

It is easy to get started at Change Sports PT.  Here are some things to bring to your first visit.

  • Your doctor’s referral if you have one.  This isn’t completely necessary in most cases, but if you have it bring it.
  • Insurance card
  • Clothes which allow access to the area we are treating.  -You might need to tell your teenage son to change out of those skinny jeans 🙂
  • You can register online before you come, bring in your printed out registration packet, or fill one out when you get here.

What will we do on my first visit?

Your visit will last around one hour.  After the initial checking in activities, you will be seen by one of our physical therapists.  They will ask you some questions about your current condition and get an idea of what your goals are and what you hope to accomplish in physical therapy.  You will begin with some form of treatment on your first visit.  This may involve some hands on manual therapy, exercises, and other treatments.  Our goal in this first visit is to understand you and what is going on with you.  We also want to find out what is causing your pain, as well as how to resolve it.

After this first evaluation we will start you on your path to healing!
