During your initial evaluation, a physical therapist will conduct a whole-body movement assessment that will include tests of strength, flexibility, and an observation of functional movements that you complete on a daily basis. Based on the findings and keeping your goals in mind, the therapist will identify the source of your dysfunction or pain and design an individualized plan of care for symptom relief and to address the origin of your concerns. While the majority of your initial evaluation will be spent collecting information and assessing your current physical presentation, you may receive some form of manual therapy treatment and a set of exercises.
What to bring to your initial evaluation:
- Patient Intake Forms can be completed prior to your appointment (or come 15 minutes early to your appointment)
- Insurance referral (if needed per your insurance policy) – please call your primary care physician to have an insurance referral faxed to our facility.
- Photo ID, Health Insurance Card, and Co-Payment (if applicable)
- Comfortable clothes and athletic shoes (and any inserts if applicable)
Please review and complete relevant forms before your first visit. You may bring the forms, fax, or email them prior to your appointment. Please let us know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
