On your first visit to physical therapy, please be sure to bring:
Please include a cover sheet with your name, day-time phone number and the number of pages.
On your first visit, we will give you an initial evaluation. Your physical therapist will take a thorough history of your condition and then take specific tests and measurements to pinpoint your area to be treated. Your therapist will use this data to make a clinical judgment of your diagnosis and prognosis. Then your therapist will work together with you towards planning the best way to resolve the problems identified. Goals and plans for your therapy will be explained thoroughly before your following visits.
Your initial visit is approximately 1 hour. We also ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to this appointment to complete necessary paperwork. Treatment sessions, after the initial evaluation, typically last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour depending on the patient and their diagnosis.
Depending on the diagnosis, we will work with you and your physician in determining the amount of visits that will be needed for you to improve your condition.
Our therapists will fill you in on and discuss your progress with you, as you are evaluated at every session for improvements. Please inform your therapist of any new physician appointments so that they can re-evaluate and determine the best treatment methods for you.
Your appointment time is exclusively for you. It is for this reason that we request you give us a minimum of 24 hours notice when canceling or you will be charged $75.
