What You Can Expect
The initial visit is generally scheduled for 1 hour. At this visit the physical therapist will gather information about your condition and perform a series of tests to determine the source of your symptoms and what factors might be contributing. Your physical therapist will share his/her findings with you. Together you will discuss your goals and develop a treatment plan to target the SOURCE of your symptoms so you can achieve your rehab goals. An effective treatment plan takes into consideration your time and financial constraints, personal preferences and will include a clear and concise home exercise program (HEP) you can successfully work into your daily routine. By regularly performing your home exercise program you will be able to help yourself GET BETTER, SOONER. Your physical therapist will use your response to your exercises as an indicator for when to modify and or progress your therapy. An initial home exercise program will be developed at the end of your first visit.
At the end of your visit your physical therapist will discuss with you how often you should come and for how long. The duration of therapy is highly variable and dependent on the severity of your condition, personal preference, compliance with your home exercise program and more. Often visits are more frequent the first couple of weeks, then decrease as you begin to improve. You should begin to notice improvements in your condition within 1-2 weeks.
