Hetal (Hay-th-ul) Acharekar, PT, MPT, CAFS, MAT

Hetal has led a distinguished career as a clinical physical therapist for the past 15 years, as a leading authority in Orthopedic and Sports injuries and is the owner of PerformanceAbove, LLC. She graduated with her Master's in Physical Therapy in 2006.

Golf came into her life 3 years ago. She fell in love with the sport after taking lessons and playing with her kids. Then she decided to blend golf with biomechanics of the body to help optimize the swing while helping prevent the most common injuries. Hetal uses a quantitative research based approach and video analysis to assess mobility, strength, speed, agility, and endurance from head to toe (Golf Performance). She then customizes a golf performance program based on the results and your goal.

Hetal's expertise is in chronic injuries, especially those of the back and hip that are associated with repetitive movement dysfunctions. Much of Hetal's work focuses on the integrative concepts of posture, stability and mobility, and how they influence movement.

She holds a Masters in Physical Therapy (MPT), Certification in Allied Functional Science (CAFS), Certification in 3-Dimensional Movement Analysis and Performance System (3DMAPS) and Movement Assessment Tool (MAT Level 2) Certified.

How much does physical therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on what we do, and what we do depends on what you need and want. Each treatment plan is customized to you.

The unit pricing for each treatment is based on Medicare CPT code guidelines.

If you have Medicare Part B insurance, Medicare will cover 80% of the treatment options. If you have a supplemental insurance plan, the remaining 20% should be covered by that. If you do not have a supplemental plan, you will pay cash for the remaining 20% at the time of service.

For Medicare to cover your visits, you first need to have a referral faxed to us at 803-728-6875.

For Physical Therapy, will my insurance or HSA/FSA cover this program?

I only accept Medicare. However, you will receive a superbill receipt, which is a detailed medical receipt that allows you to bill your insurance or HSA/FSA directly.
