What to Expect from Physical Therapy
What can I expect at the first treatment?
At your first appointment, a licensed physical therapist and/or occupational therapist will evaluate your current status. During your evaluation, your therapist will set goals for your treatment and together you will develop a plan of care which will outline the recommendations for your treatment.
How long do visits usually last?
The first visit lasts about an hour and a half. Depending on the plan of care your therapist recommends for your treatment, your sessions may vary. Future appointments will last around one hour.
What type of clothing should I wear?
All lower extremity (knee and ankle) patients should wear shorts or some type of clothing that can be rolled up easily for treatment. Other patients may choose any attire as long as it is loose-fitting and comfortable.
