- After your request for therapy is complete, we will contact you to schedule your first appointment. It is imperative that you arrive at least 30 minutes early for your first appointment - please plan accordingly. To help minimize the amount of paperwork you will need to fill out in the office, please print and complete the following forms and bring them with you to your first visit:
Other forms may be required by your insurance company and can be found on our Patient Forms page. We will let you know prior to your first visit if any other forms will be required.
- Please bring a photo ID and insurance card.
- Loose-fitting clothing and tennis shoes allow for maximum flexibility and full range of motion.
- Your first visit will include a private one-on-one evaluation from one of our licensed physical therapists. During this time you will be asked a variety of questions to help us determine the best treatment plan for you. You will also be asked to display a certain range of motion as a baseline for your treatment.
- Upon completion of your evaluation, treatment will begin immediately.
- In addition to your treatment in the clinic, your therapist will design a Custom Rehabilitation Program specifically for you. This program is for you to use in addition to the therapy provided when you are at the clinic. Each Custom Rehabilitation Program is designed exclusively for you and will help speed your recovery, so it is essential that you follow your Custom Rehabilitation Program. Your therapist will work with you so that you understand, and are comfortable with, your program. They will gladly answer any questions you may have. Please bring your program booklet with you to every appointment so your therapist can evaluate and assess your progress. This will allow your therapist to make adjustments to your program based on your results. If you ever have any concerns about your treatment, please address them with your therapist immediately. Your communication helps us treat you in the most efficient way possible.
You may experience varying degrees of temporary soreness or increased pain after your first few treatments. This is normal and generally quickly improves as you progress through your treatment plan. It is very important to let your therapist know exactly how you are feeling so that your treatment can be adjusted as needed.
