YOUR FIRST PHYSICAL THERAPY VISIT


What can I expect at my first appointment?

Your first visit will last approximately one hour. It will entail a comprehensive evaluation, inclusive of an interview and a physical examination. Your physical therapist will review your medical history, diagnostic tests when available, and physical therapy prescription from your physician, if available. If time allows, your physical therapist may begin your treatment that day.

When should I arrive?

Please arrive 15 minutes before your first scheduled appointment in order to complete all necessary paperwork.

What should I wear?

It is best to wear comfortable/athletic clothing that allows easy access to the injured body part(s) and does not restrict movement. For shoulder injuries, a short sleeve shirt or tank top is preferred. For leg injuries, shorts are preferred. (A restroom is available should you need to change clothes.) Please wear shoes, such as sneakers, that will allow you to perform exercises safely.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Photo Identification (Valid Driver’s License or Valid Passport)
Prescription/Doctor Referral (if available)
Insurance Card

For how long and how often will I be treated?

Each patient is treated as an individual. As a result, the length and the frequency of physical therapy sessions vary by patient. Typically, sessions last approximately one hour and occur two or three times weekly. This may vary with your physician’s prescription and/or health insurance coverage. We will happily work with any scheduling conflicts you may have.

How much does physical therapy cost?

There are several factors that affect the cost of treatment, including your diagnosis and your individual needs. The amount covered by health insurance varies by provider and plan. We will verify your insurance benefits prior to your arrival to assure that the care provided is affordable. Depending upon your insurance, a co-payment may be required at each visit. We accept cash and checks only and provide the necessary paperwork for reimbursement from health savings accounts or flexible spending accounts should you participate.
