Quick answers for the most commons questions
What to expect my first visit?
Please arrive on time to your scheduled appointment. We are committed to our scheduled times! The initial visit runs about 60 minutes with your physical therapist. Your health history will be reviewed as well as history leading to your primary complaint. A complete physical therapy examination will be performed including tests and measures necessary to arrive at the appropriate diagnosis and prognosis. It may be necessary to have my therapist perform an internal pelvic floor muscle examination. This examination is performed by observing and/or palpating the perineal region including the vagina and/or rectum. This evaluation will assess skin condition, reflexes, muscle tone, length, strength and endurance, scar mobility and function of the pelvic floor region.
What should I bring to my first visit and how long are the visits?
This appointment is about you, the new patient! We want to hear your story and your goals.
Please have all new patient forms (registration and health history) completely filled out in our Patient Portal. If a prescription was given to you by your physician bring that along. If there is any other information you want to share with your physical therapist (ie. MRI reports, surgical reports, etc) make to sure to bring that too or upload into your patient portal. Comfortable clothing is recommended, however not necessary.
Initial evaluation is 60 minutes and follow up treatments are 45 minutes. Late arrivals will shorten your visit. Your sessions are all one on one with the same physical therapist. Most patients are seen 1 time per week while others every few weeks.
