Equilibrium Montclair offers a unique approach to Physical Therapy by incorporating the Pilates method in rehabilitation. Pilates is extraordinarily adaptable to work around injuries and offers a safe and very effective form of movement particularly under the instruction of Tom’s extensive background in both Physical Therapy and Pilates.
Tom Lavosky is an accomplished physical therapist with extensive clinical experience. Committed to achieving superior patient outcomes, he is credentialed in mechanical diagnosis and treatment of spinal disorders by the McKenzie Institute and is certified by Polestar Education as a practitioner of Pilates for rehabilitation. Consistently providing cutting edge, evidence-based treatment, his expertise includes lower extremity biomechanics and injuries, spinal rehabilitation, and dizziness/vestibular disorders.
As someone who suffered from episodic lower back pain for many years, Tom understands first-hand what many of his patients are dealing with. After diligently participating in mat and equipment based Pilates classes, his back pain improved significantly. This personal experience motivated him to attain proficiency in this method, and to incorporate it in the treatment of patients with spinal disorders.
Tom's approach is based on hands-on, personalized care, beginning with a comprehensive evaluation of your physical status. Taking into account your specific personal goals and the results of your evaluation, Tom then creates a program customized just for you. And, as part of his commitment to providing high quality care, ample treatment time is allotted for each subsequent visit, allowing for ongoing individualized attention.
Fees and Insurance
As a courtesy service to potential new patients, I'll call their insurance carrier to inquire about their benefits. After the information is obtain, I either send them an email that outlines their benefits or call to verbally review them. Below is an example:
My fee for PT services is $100 for the initial evaluation and $80 for subsequent visits. I provide one-on-one treatment that typically lasts 50 min. I do not overlap patient’s visits or book multiple patients at the same time.
