General Physical Therapy FAQs

What does a Physical Therapist do?

Physical therapists are doctorate-level musculoskeletal experts who specialize in helping people improve their physical function and quality of life. In other words, we work with our patients to help them achieve their goals, whether that’s recovering from an injury or surgery, reaching a new athletic level, or minimizing pain.

How long will I need PT?

That depends on the reason you’re seeking care. We’ll work together to develop a personalized treatment plan that takes into account your specific needs.

What will happen during my first physical therapy appointment?

At your first appointment, your physical therapist will discuss your health history, reasons for seeking care, and goals. The PT will then complete a thorough initial evaluation, assessing things like your balance, range of motion, and pain levels. Together, you’ll create a plan of care to assist you in meeting your goals.

What should I wear to my sessions?

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that does not restrict your movement in any way. Aim for athletic attire over jeans.  Comfortable athletic shoes will be best if you are able to perform exercise.

What should I bring to my first PT appointment?

If you have not provided a copy of your insurance card, please present this at your first appointment. We’ll need to take a copy of the front and back of your card to keep on file.  If you have a doctor’s referral we strongly recommend that you submit this in advance of your initial appointment.

How early should I arrive for my first appointment?

We ask that all new patients arrive 5 minutes prior to their first appointment for check in.  Logging into our Patient Portal prior to your first appointment and completing to review and sign your patient forms will streamline this process.  You will be asked to review these forms every 90 days.
