What is Physical Therapy? 

During the evaluation, the Physical Therapist will listen to you and ask questions about the issue that brings you in for treatment. They will then do an evaluation which may include evaluating the range of motion, strength, and functional activities. It may also involve palpating (feeling) your joint or soft tissue mobility. They will then discuss their findings. 

You work together, as a team, to achieve your goals. They will educate you, do any manual treatments necessary, and give you a program to work on. You, in turn, will be responsible for implementing suggested changes, reporting back on what is working and what is not, and updating the PT on your progress. 

At subsequent visits, you will check-in, test a couple of things that you are working on, and progress any needed manual therapy, education, and exercise. 

What to Expect During a Session

Your session will begin with a comprehensive evaluation by a physical therapist consisting of a functional assessment and muscular imbalances. You will then collaborate on a program that gets you back to your prior level of activity and function. 

Our treatment philosophy aims to improve movement and function and we stress active patient participation through patient education and home exercise. This is important for the success of your rehabilitation program. You will be asked to do activities on your own, either at home or gym, to optimize your rehabilitation.
