What to expect on the day of your Physical Therapy evaluation:

You will be contacted by your physician's office or Therapy Center reception staff regarding the date and time of your therapy evaluation.

It is requested that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time for registration and to fill out a pre-evaluation questionnaire. Wear comfortable clothing and bring shorts to change into if your injury involves the lower extremities. The Therapy Center has shorts and gowns available for you if you don't have any with you.

At your appointment time, the therapist will take you back to a treatment room to discuss your current injury. He or she may ask you questions about your past medical history or other factors that may affect your condition.

The therapist will perform a musculoskeletal evaluation to determine the structures affected by your injury and the extent of the damage. Using evaluation findings, the therapist will prescribe exercises, apply manual therapy techniques or perform various modalities to help alleviate pain, improve strength and range of motion or improve balance and walking.

In most cases, the therapist will provide you with recommendations and written handouts describing home exercises, activity modification and pain management techniques pertinent to your condition.

Your referring physician will be provided with a copy of the therapy evaluation and findings and will be updated regularly regarding your progress.

Individuals under the age of 18 will require parental consent to receive therapy services.
