Once You Arrive...
When you arrive the front desk will make a copy of your ID and Insurance Card. You will then be given registration forms and questionnaires relevant to your pain or injury. These will help our therapists get a better picture before speaking with you. We will also inform you if you have a co-payment for your visits.
Then the therapist will bring you into the clinic...
The therapist will start by having you explain a brief medical history, such as previous surgeries/procedures, if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. Then they will have you describe how you are feeling, when your pain started, when or if you had surgery, and if certain positions make you feel better or worse. Your therapist is then going to put you through a series of tests and positions to determine you range of motion, strength, and function. This is going to help them decide your plan of care.
Your therapist is going to design a plan of care based on the goals deemed relevant and realistic by both you and the therapist. These goals will be specific to you based upon what hobbies, recreational activities and function to are trying to reach. These goals will help dictate the exercises and activities you will be performing in your following sessions.
You will then have an abbreviated session with a few exercises and stretches. The therapist will also give you a sheet with exercises to begin at home. After your session the front desk will help you schedule your appointments. If your insurance requires authorization, we will call you to schedule once we get authorization.
*TIP: Sometimes it is helpful to bring some notes so you remember to tell or ask your therapist everything you wanted to.
