At your first visit, a highly-trained doctor of physical therapy will review your medical history and do a thorough physical evaluation. Depending on your diagnosis, our therapist may evaluate your: pain, flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, and posture. We may look at how you walk, sit, or get up from lying down (functional activities), along with how you use and position your body as you perform activities (body mechanics).
The therapist will discuss the findings with you and work with you to determine your goals for physical therapy and to begin planning your treatment. An at-home exercise program with written instructions, illustrations, and video will be given to you following your first visit. In addition, we will send a report to your physician regarding your evaluation and treatment plan.
