Yes. The choice of where you receive physical therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physician’s referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

We participate in the majority of health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– A copy of your medications list including dosages, if you have it
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

In order for you to achieve the result you deserve, you will be given a treatment plan after your initial evaluation. It is important for your recovery that you attend every appointment outlined by your therapist and prescribed by your physician. You may start to feel better after only a few visits, but can relapse if you do not complete your entire course of therapy.


As an Orthopedic Surgeon in the area that specializes in musculoskeletal conditions and specifically shoulder problems, I trust Arch Physical Therapy for even the most complex problems. Micky is very attentive to their patients and provides a lot of hands-on care. They communicate well. explain the hows and whys to their clients and really foster a team-like atmosphere. The feedback I receive from my patients is exceptional. I do not hesitate recommending Arch to my patients. They are the best in town.

Patrick Noud, MD

I have utilized ARCH Physical Therapy for my patients with outstanding results. I have referred a variety of diagnoses to Micky and her staff. I have been very pleased with the care my patients received, as well as, the positive comments my patients have made regarding the atmosphere at ARCH. The continuity of care is exceptional and I highly recommend their clinic for your patients who live or work on the west side of Lansing, Dimondale, Grand Ledge, and the downtown Lansing area.

T. Jamieson, DO

Micky and her team work hard to get you back to normal. In my case they designed a therapy sequence that addressed my strength, gait and balance issues and I’m improving. My illness affects my whole nervous system so I’m compromised in a different way than many of their patients but they haven’t given up on me and I appreciate their compassion and determination to help me. I see how professional they are with all their patients, from young children to even some older than myself, and they work well with everyone. You are never left alone to fend for yourself and on my weak days they are there to brace my back while I do my exercises. Professional, competent and firmly focused on getting you back in shape. I recommend them highly.

Arch Physical Therapy was a Godsend for me after I tore my Achilles tendon.  They listened and took the time to create a program that was best for me. Their receptionist was very personable and easy to work with. I would recommend this group to anyone, so much so that my teenage son is now being treated by them.

S. Kramer

Around the end of June/beginning of July I was mad at the world because I thought my senior year of football was ruined and that I wasn’t going to be anywhere near 100% come season time BUT I just want to thank God for sending me to ARCH Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine. Your guys are excellent at your craft and have a genuine passion for the health of your patients.
