​​​​​What does the Inital Evaluation Entail?

Your first visit will include a comprehensive initial evaluation performed by a licensed and insured physical therapist. Depending on your specific case, we may begin treatment the first day as well.  Through differential diagnosis the therapist evaluates their patient’s injuries to determine the underlying cause of the patient’s symptoms.  Based upon evaluation, a custom plan of care is devised to assist with regaining pain free independence with all activities of daily living.  During your first visit your physical therapist will discuss the following with you:

  • Your complete medical history.

  • Your current problems/complaints.

  • Pain intensity, what aggravates and eases the problem.

  • How this is impacting your daily activities or your functional limitations.

  • Your goals with physical therapy.

  • Medications, tests, and procedures related to your health.

  • A detailed treatment plan that uniquly fits your needs

  • In most cases, a home-exercise program.

    • You will be given a print out of your home-exercises by your therapist.

What should I wear?

It is best to wear loose fitting clothing to your appointments.  It is helpful if we can see and palpate the area of injury/pain. For example, if you are coming to PT for a knee problem it is best to wear shorts or loose pants that you can pull up above your knee.
