On your first visit, you will be greeted by your licensed physical therapist. You will be asked to fill out some paperwork regarding your medical history and insurance information. Please bring your prescription for physical therapy, operative reports, X-ray, CT scan, MRI, or nerve conduction test results related to your injury.
Your physical therapist will then perform a comprehensive evaluation to better understand your condition or injury. Questions regarding the mechanism of injury, nature of your pain, medical history, and personal goals will be addressed. A thorough physical exam, including range of motion, strength, flexibility, palpation and special tests, will be conducted to determine the integrity of your muscles, tendons, ligaments, movements, gait analysis, balance, proprioception, nerve tension and sensation, and joint mobility. We emphasize the importance of educating you on your current condition, the prognosis and time frame for recovery.
Based on your physician’s diagnosis, our prognosis, and your personal goals, an individual treatment plan will be created. Upon your first visit you will receive manual treatment and be directed through a series of therapeutic exercises and therapeutic modalities specific to your needs.
Please bring your personal calendars to schedule future appointments.
