What to Expect at Your First Visit
At your initial visit, you will be asked to fill out papers concerning your current condition and your health insurance. You will need to bring your insurance card, driver's license, any medical records or test results pertaining to your condition, and a medication list.
Please wear loose fitting clothing (shorts and a tank top are recommended). An initial evaluation will be conducted in a private examining room by a licensed physical therapist. The results of this exam will yield an individualized treatment program for each person. The physical therapist will prescribe an exercise program and treatment plan directed toward achieving therapy goals as well as your own personal goals.
The first treatment session may be offered the same day or may be re-scheduled. Depending on your condition, you may want to have a family member or support person accompany you to your first appointment.
