When should I arrive to my first visit?
We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your first scheduled appointment to allow time to fill out paperwork and go over your insurance benefits. You can also complete the paperwork ahead of time by filling out the Intake Form online.
What should I wear to my first visit?
We recommend wearing loose fitting clothing that will easily allow you to expose the area we will be evaluating. For example, if you are coming to therapy for your knee, we recommend wearing shorts. For the shoulder, we recommend wearing a tank top. For the low back, we recommend wearing a loose fitting shirt and pants so we can perform a thorough examination. During the winter months or wet days we recommend bringing an extra pair of dry shoes.
How long is the first visit?
The initial evaluation and subsequent treatment sessions will last around 45-60 minutes each.
How many physical therapy visits will I need?
The number of physical therapy visits you will need largely depends on your condition and is discussed with you by your physical therapist on the first visit. Your therapist will propose plan of care including the recommended frequency (number of visits per week) and duration (total weeks) of treatment. You will also determine when your first progress evaluation will take place. Your therapist will recommend a plan that will ensure you reach your goals as quickly and safely as possible.
