Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
During your first visit, we’ll take care of the paperwork. Please download, complete and bring the forms with you for your first visit.
You’ll meet with your physical therapist and review your current injury, any past injuries and treatment, medical history, your fitness and recreation activities and hobbies. You’ll discuss your limitations and most importantly your goals. Your therapist will then perform a comprehensive physical assessment, discuss the findings and you’ll agree on a plan of treatment. Often, treatment will begin during the first visit.
You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear loose fitting shorts. For a shoulder problem, a camisole type tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose fitting shirt and shorts, again so we can perform a thorough examination.
Treatment sessions typically last 45 to 60 minutes per visit one to one with the same therapist each session.
The number of visits varies based on your individual needs. The average is 4-6 visits. We usually recommend treatment 1-2 times each week then progress to longer time frames between visits as symptoms improve. We offer Tune Ups as needed to maintain optimal function.
