What to expect on your first visit

  1. During your initial visit we will spend time to take a medical history and review the information you filled out on the intake forms. We will evaluate you for range of motion of your joints and spine, test for strength and overall function. We will palpate (touch and feel) your area of complaints and complete special (movement and balance) tests to assess the reason for your pain and discomfort as well as impaired function. We will then make a plan on how to proceed with treatment interventions and discuss how we can work together to reach your goals.
  1. Treatment will be explained to you on the first visit and often will include advice for you and some home exercises to start with.
  1. Please be prepared to expose the area to be treated. Bring or wear comfortable, loose clothing, shorts (preferably with an elastic waist band) for an injury below the waist or your low back. Women are advised to bring or wear a tank top, halter-top, swim suit top or sports-bra when the area of complaint involves neck, shoulder or upper back. If you are seen for a running injury, please bring your running shoes.
  1. Please bring your physician’s referral for physical therapy if you have received one.
  1. If you have copies of your X-Ray, MRI or surgery report, please bring those to your 1st visit.
