Your first visit will begin with a specialized and focused evaluation, which involves collecting information about the current problem as well as your general health and therapy goals. A physical exam is then conducted to assess the range of motion, sensation awareness, pain levels, strength, and your ability to perform specific functional tasks.
Your treatment program will initially focus on relieving your symptoms and on stabilizing your condition. This will be accomplished using a wide range of interventions to facilitate necessary changes. Treatment will then progress to strengthening and regaining maximum movement and function. Flexibility and strengthening programs are tailored to meet individual goals and to assist in the process of recovery. In addition, you will learn ways to prevent future problems.
Since your understanding and participation is essential in achieving your treatment goals, you will be taught strategies to take control of your body and the process of healing. Education is part of what we do as physical therapists. Expect to receive a written home program that will include both flexibility and strengthening techniques.
Open communication is vital between you and your therapist, and we encourage you to ask questions during your course of therapy.
