Frequently Asked Questions
What is physical therapy?
Physical Therapy is a science-driven, evidence-based profession with a focus on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of movement dysfunctions and the enhancement of physical health and functional abilities. Physical Therapists help you improve health, eliminate pain, regain strength and improve balance, mobility and sports performance.
What should I wear to my appointment?
You should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. If you are being seen for knee or back problems, a pair of shorts is a good choice. For shoulder or neck issues, a tank top or sleeveless shirt is helpful.
How long are appointments?
For the first visit you should plan on an hour. After your evaluation is complete we will work with you to develop a schedule that meets your needs.
What is my responsibility as a patient?
Therapy is a partnership, and your therapist can’t do it for you or without you! Follow through with home exercise programs and instructions from your therapist. Your recovery and success depend on it!
Will my physical therapist communicate with my doctor?
After the first visit, our therapist will send an evaluation summary to your doctor and progress notes every ten sessions or monthly. Please let your therapist know when your doctors appointments are, so we can send the most up to date information prior to your appointment.
What will my therapist do on the first visit?
Your therapist will complete an initial evaluation during your first visit. The therapist will talk with you about your concerns, review your past medical history and medications you are taking, complete tests and measures, and discuss a plan of care to meet your goals.
What is a typical therapy session like?
Your plan of care may include specific exercises, soft tissue work and stretching, joint mobilization and manipulation, range of motion exercises, or you may be treated on specialized equipment such as the body weight support system.
