What can I expect at my first appointment?
You can expect a warm welcome! We will perform a thorough evaluation including discussing your medical history, your current diagnosis and the challenges that come with it, physical assessment and possible administering of treatment.
How many visits will I need?
The number of visits varies. It depends on your diagnosis, medical history and overall health. We will periodically re-evaluate you and provide you with information that you will need to follow up with your doctor. Our goal is to get you to your optimal health in the safest and most effective way for you.
What do I wear to physical therapy?
First and foremost, wear something comfortable! We recommend loose fitting clothes so that we have access to the treatment area. For example, shorts are a good idea for knee problems and tank tops or short-sleeved shirts for shoulder pain.
How long will my appointment last?
The initial appointment will last approximately 60 minutes, with subsequent appointments lasting 45-60 minutes.
