What to bring to your first visit:
What to wear:
We usually recommend that patients wear looser-fitting exercise clothing and sneakers for maximum comfort. If working with the knee shorts are recommended.
Your Physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the proper treatment plan for your particular needs.
After the physical therapist completes the evaluation of your condition he will explain how they will treat it. You will become an active participant, not a passive recipient, in your rehabilitation program: your therapist will stay in close communication regarding goal setting and response to treatment. Post-op protocols are provided by your surgeon and are adhered to.
Treatment will begin on the same day as the evaluation. (Allow for an hour for your appointment.)
A tailored home exercise program will be given. It is essential to your quick recovery to adhere to this program.
The last step is to check out with the Patient Service Specialist and schedule follow-up appointments
The length of your treatment plan and frequency of visits is based on your specific injury/condition, the physician prescription, your insurance plan and the therapist’s recommended treatment plan.
