1What is the typical treatment time with Baby Begin?
If your baby is older, treatment time varies greatly. It depends on initial severity, parent follow through, baby’s tolerance, growth rate, etc.
2Does Baby Begin take insurance?
3What type of payment do you accept?
4Who are the therapists that would be working with my baby?
5Why shouldn't I just go to a big hospital for therapy?
Also, most outpatient facilities only see their patients for 30 min each visit. We see our babies close to an hour, which is a much more effective way to treat torticollis.
6How do I refer my baby?
Remember – there is no reason to wait. You only have a small window of opportunity, so take it.
7Do you provide any other services?
8What if my doctor just wants to show me some stretches in the office?
We are able to come to your home and set up a home program that you will follow and the baby doesn’t cry. This is very important when treating this population. Stress on the baby and/or the parent is counterproductive.
Even just one appointment with Baby Begin can get you well on your way.
If your baby is having trouble with tummy time, we are very good at offering different options and fun activities. This will also help to avoid later developmental delays.
9Where is your office?
10What is the oldest baby you will see?
Our youngest patient thus far was 5 days old and our oldest was 24 months. The best time to see a patient for plagiocephaly is before 6 months of age.
11Why can’t I just go to the helmet provider? Don’t they work on the torticollis?
If your baby is in a helmet, it is critical that they have regular therapy for their neck. This is the only way to facilitate correction in the skull base – ears, jaw, eyes and face. We work with many babies who are currently in a helmet.
12What is your success rate?
All of our patients, if following their home program, show marked improvement with their torticollis.
13How long have you been in business and how many babies have you seen?
14Why aren't you in network with insurance companies?
We offer highly competitive rates and are willing to work with families as needed. We really don’t want to turn anyone away!
Many of our families have had success with requesting a “Gap Exception” to get our services covered at an in-network level. Ask your carrier if that is an option and let us know if you would like us to help you.
