What To Expect From PT

Here is what to expect in the days after your evaluation:

  • You may feel some soreness after your treatment, which is normal.
  • You will be given a personalized Home Exercise Program that you will be asked to perform at home.
  • If you have any questions about your Home Exercise Program, it can be reviewed during your next follow up visit.
  • We may ask you to ice and/or heat the affected area to help with pain, edema, muscle spasms or tightness. When using ice/heat, it should be for 15-20 minutes, 1-3 times a day.
  • For your next follow up visit, please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time to perform a few warm up exercises before seeing your therapist.
  • We advise scheduling follow up visits 2 weeks in advance to secure the times most convenient for you.
  • Each follow up visit will last 60-90 minutes.
  • If you have any time constraints, please let us know upon arrival, so that we can modify your treatment accordingly.
  • Please wear or bring clothes that allow your therapist to access the body part you are being treated for.
  • As a courtesy to other patients, we do not allow cell phones during your treatment. We ask you step outside to take any urgent calls.
