What to Wear
What to Expect at My Initial Evaluation
Your visit will last one hour and will involve a 1:1 conversation with your physical therapist listening to your concerns and goals. After examining your joint mobility, muscle performance and your functional level, a customized treatment program will be designed with your goals in mind. Your therapist will answer all of your questions and educate you as to what your impairment findings are, as well as the do’s and don’ts related to your condition. If time allows, a short trial treatment will be performed, which may include some initial home exercises.
