Physical Therapy

During an initial evaluation, we address your whole body, not just the part that hurts or is injured. The goal is to create a comprehensive plan of care, that gets you feeling better as quickly as possible. 

Occupational Therapy

Our certified occupational therapist assists with the physical, cognitive, and sensory impacts of injury. Treatment focuses on upper extremities, helping patients return to activities of daily living.

Performance Training

Reduce injuries and improve your athletic performance. Individuals or teams commit to 1-3 sessions per week to improve strength, coordination, and conditioning. Programs are tailored to your sport.

Medical Massage

Medical massage aims to provide relief following an injury or recurring pain. Using hands-on techniques, our trained therapists will work to promote recovery and restore health and function.

Who can benefit from physical therapy?

Physical therapy (PT) is care that aims to ease pain and help patients function, move, and live better. At Coastline Physical Therapy we help people of all ages get back to doing what they love, without unnecessary pain medication, surgery, or visits to the doctor.

Your experience will be based on one-on-one attention and individualized treatment. Together we’ll create a care plan that is tailored to best suit your needs – with maximum flexibility and minimal interference.

What should you expect?

Our therapists will quickly identify the cause of your symptoms and apply manual therapy techniques to help resolve your pain, improve your health, and get you back to your daily activities, as soon as possible.

1. Do you require a referral from my doctor?

No! Maine is a “direct access” state, meaning a prescription of a referral is not required. This eliminates extra steps, such as waiting for a doctor’s office visit, allowing the patient to begin treatment faster. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

2. Do you take insurance?

Coastline is an out-of-network provider. We believe that insurance-driven physical therapy can often lead to double-booked appointments, less time with your therapist, limited service options, even the denial of treatment. We prefer to tailor a care plan that best suits your needs, with maximum flexibility and without third-party limitations.

3. Can my insurance company reimburse my visit?

Maybe! If you call your insurance company and ask “what are my out-of-network physical therapy benefits?” you may be eligible to receive a partial reimbursement directly from your insurance company. Coastline will provide you with a bill containing all the necessary information you’d need to submit.

4. Do you treat my specific injury?

Probably! Our comprehensive approach can diagnose almost any ailment and bring you relief. Not sure if physical therapy is the right solution to your problem? We are!

5. How many visits will it take until I feel better?

While the frequency and number of visits will vary by patient, treatment sessions are typically 1-2x/week for a total of 5-8 visits.

Patient Testimonials

“During my visits with Hollan, I realized that I could trust her abilities and knowledge early on, and that she truly cares about your progress, becoming a valuable partner/friend guiding you down the road to wellness.”

“I barely was able to walk into Hollan’s office … after she worked on me I was walking nearly normally. I faithfully did everything she told me to do after the first session, needed no more pain medications, followed up with a second session and was able to control all my symptoms.”

“My daughter had been dealing with wrist pain since a sprain 10 months ago. We were about to get another X-ray and see an orthopedic surgeon when we decided to try Hollan instead. We are so glad we did, she knew exactly what to do!”
