We are excited you will be coming to Orthopedic Physical Therapy for your treatment. In preparation for your first visit, please complete any new patient surveys related to your condition. If you are unable to complete these surveys online in advance, we recommend you arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment to complete this information in-office. We also recommend all patients review our insurance and payment policy pages, and please bring a medication list to your first appointment.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably for your visit and be prepared for physical activity. Your therapist may need to stretch your limbs or you may need to partially undress, depending on your diagnosis. We provide private treatment rooms and gowns for those needing to partially disrobe for their treatment. We usually recommend wearing what you may wear to exercise or relax at home (just avoid the pajamas).
How long will my appointment last and how often will I come?
We want to be sure we dedicate time to your healing, so please be prepared to invest time in your health. Expect to be at our office for approximately 45 minutes to one hour per visit. Also note that it takes time for injuries to heal, and most conditions can not be “cured” in one visit. Depending on your condition, you can be with us for several weeks or even months depending on the severity of the injury. Patient compliance is also key to a faster healing process. We promise you will find it is time well spent.
Will I get face time with my therapist at each visit?
Absolutely! We feel very strongly that a personal connection and one-on-one treatment is critical to your healing, and there will never be a visit where you are not personally seen by your physical therapist. Your PT will spend a bulk of time during each of your visits administering hands-on therapy and closely monitoring your progress. Part of your treatment may be spent actively exercising, or receiving a modality such as moist heat, cold packs, and/or electrical stimulation. During these times of your appointment you may be attended by a physical therapy aide.
