We created this page because we know what it is like to be refered to physical therapy without knowing what it is all about. Many of us at the clinic also started as patients.
Your first day will involve a detailed discussion about your injury. Your physical therpist will perform a complete examination and evaluation of the injured area. Which will include specific tissue testing, gait analysis, functional screening, biomechanical analysis, etc. Your therapist will then present their findings to you and do their best to explain them in detail.
Following the evaluation, your physical therapist will begin treatment to the injured area. You will also be shown a specific home exercise/treatment program. (Please wear appropriate gym type clothing). Each subsequent day of treatment will include hands-on treatment, in which your therapist will address tissue tightness, joint dysfunctions, movement pattern problems, and flexibility just to mention a few. During this time your therapist will be able to re-assess your injury and keep track of your progress. You will also perform a specific exercise program designed for your injury and activity level.
We believe communication is key to your success, so please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
