...what to expect...
What should I expect at my first visit and what should I wear?
The Physical Therapist assigned to you will evaluate you to determine your specific physical needs in order to establish an individualized treatment program.
You and your therapist will discuss and agree upon the goals of your treatment.
Your first visit is typically just an evaluation. Some insurance carriers do allow for treatment on the first visit; please check with a patient services representative to find out what your specific insurance carrier allows.
Evaluations typically last for 20-30 minutes. If treatment is included in your first visit, expect to be here for at least an hour, up to an hour and a half.
In order to effectively treat you, we will need to be able to easily access your injured body part. Please wear loose clothing that allows for the body part to be exposed. Athletic shoes are not always required but are typically a good choice for this setting. If you are coming for treatment for your low back or lower extremities, athletic shoes are desired.
