If you haven’t already, you will be asked to fill out paperwork. Then, your physical therapist will sit down with you in a private treatment room and evaluate your medical history, injury, and/or condition. The therapist will then note how you move and which movements are difficult or painful – measurements may be taken of your mobility, strength, and/or range of motion. Together, you and your physical therapist will discuss your goals of therapy, the plan of treatment, what to expect each visit, and the frequency of services to be provided (such as 2 or 3 times per week). Time-permitting, treatment will also be initiated during your first session and you may be given exercises or instructions to complete at home.
