When you first arrive at the clinic, have your insurance card and driver’s license available for photocopy. You will also need to give us your prescription for physical therapy from your doctor and any other medical notes.
Paperwork will then be given to you to fill out. It is recommended that you come 15-20 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the paperwork. You can also download the paperwork to complete ahead of time to save time and bring to your appointment.
On your first appointment (Initial Evaluation) your Physical Therapist will ask you a series of questions about your past and present medical conditions, before performing a comprehensive evaluation of your muscles, joints, nerves, tendons, and ligaments including range of motion, strength and functional testing. Based on your diagnosis, prognosis and your personal goals, an individual “Plan of Care” will be devised. There is usually some treatment on the first visit as well. Future appointments will then be scheduled to implement the plan.
