What To Expect On Your First Visit
Our physical therapy evaluations begin with obtaining a history of your injury and how it affects your daily activities, work and recreation. A thorough physical examination will be performed to assess your level of conditioning as well as nerve, muscle and joint function. The therapist will evaluate posture, strength, flexibility and endurance.
Treatment plans focus on your goals and restoring functional activities. Depending on your needs, treatment may include mobilization of joints, muscles and connective tissue. Other treatments may include heat, ice, ultrasound, muscle stimulation, dry needling and traction.
Self Management Strategies
In most cases, patients receive an exercise program designed to meet their specific needs. Your treatment will conclude with instruction in self-management strategies that will help you prevent further injury.
