Physical therapy is the science of blending physiology with exercises and applying these principles to the body when you have an injury. Physical therapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it. The overall goal is to restore your mobility and function and to prevent the injury from reoccurring.
Bring your health insurance card, physical therapy prescription from your referring physician and any lab or diagnostic reports that pertain to your injury.
You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear shorts. For a shoulder problem, a tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose fitting shirt and pants so your therapist can perform a thorough examination.
Treatment sessions last 45 minutes.
