Before Your Visit:

  • Make a list of any questions that you have, to make the best use of your time with your physical therapist.

  • Write down any symptoms you've been having and for how long.

  • When you come for your first visit, avoid tight or formal clothes.


What to Bring to your First Visit:


What to Expect During Your First Visit:

  • Your physical therapist will begin by asking you lots of questions about your health and about the specific condition for which you are seeing the physical therapist.

  • Detailed information about you and your condition will help the physical therapist determine whether you are likely to benefit from physical therapy and which treatments are most likely to help you.

  • Your physical therapist will perform a detailed examination.

  • Depending on your symptoms and condition, the physical therapist might evaluate your strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, posture, blood pressure, and heart and respiration rates. 

  • Your physical therapist will work with you to determine your goals for physical therapy and will begin to develop a plan for your treatment. In many cases, the physical therapist will make a diagnosis and begin treatment almost immediately.

  •  Your physical therapist will constantly assess your response to each treatment and will make adjustments as needed.

  • You will get out of therapy what you put into it. Sufficient effort, as agreed between you and the physical therapist, is necessary to maximize benefit from each treatment session.
