Your first visit to your physical therapist office will include a detailed initial evaluation. This evaluation will help the therapist to identify your problems using special testing procedures. Once your physical therapist has evaluated your condition, they will be able to design a plan of care that specifically meets your needs. If you have certain concerns or goals, make them known at this time so your therapist understands what you are expecting from your visits.
As a part of the program design, expect a treatment timeline with realistic goals. This timeline may be changed as you progress, depending on how well your body responds to treatment.Along with regular visits to your therapist’s clinic, you will most likely receive a home exercise plan (HEP) in which you will be given specific exercises to do at home in between your regular office visits. This will help facilitate faster recovery, so stick with the program at home! Always speak openly with your therapist if you have any concerns or limitations. As your physical therapists, we will work with you closely and help you recover as quickly as possible.
We hope to get the opportunity to work with you!
Making an appointment with your physical therapist usually means that you need to improve your physical stability. Once you set an appointment, make sure that you maximize it. These are some common guidelines that can help you make the most of your therapy appointment.
Wear comfortable clothes. Jeans or long sleeves are not advisable for your therapy appointments. Do not forget to wear closed, comfortable shoes.
Make sure to arrive on time or a few minutes early to all your appointments. If you cannot come on time, make sure to call the office ahead and ask if your therapist can still see you or if it would be better to reschedule your appointment.
Discuss your condition and treatment with your therapist. Open communication will help you and the therapist understand the situation and take appropriate actions.
Do your home exercise program exactly as instructed.
Work hard. You should be as committed to your therapy as you are to your job. The speed of your recovery will depend on how much you discipline yourself in executing all the treatment (exercise included) given to you.
These rules, when applied while undergoing physical therapy, will help you improve faster. Doing your part and not depending on the therapist for everything will make you appreciate everything that is happening to you while you reach your full recovery.
