What should I expect during my first visit?


  • During your first visit, please arrive at your appointment 20 minutes early to complete your paperwork. You will be seen for the initial evaluation (45 to 60 minutes) consisting of review of system, medical interview, physical examination, and trial treatment to develop/discuss a treatment plan.

What should I expect during following visits?

  • During subsequent visits, physical therapist will implement individualized treatment plan by prioritizing areas and selection of treatment options (type of services) to improve your main problem(s). Treatment plan will continue to be modified and progressed as you make progress. Physical Therapist instructs customized self-coping activities (therapeutic exercises, activity pacing, relaxation, and related reading materials) at each visit to provide self-control over your condition.
