What Will My First Visit Be Like?
Once you have determined that your insurance plan will cover physical therapy, it’s important to schedule your very first appointment. Just like any medical practice, allow yourself some extra time for the front office registration portion before you are called into the treatment area. Once inside, you will be greeted by a DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy). The physician will evaluate and assess your chief complaint and perform a thorough exam of the affected area. Then, he will likely try some strength exercises with you, to determine where you need the most work and improvement. In many cases, he will also apply treatments such as muscle stimulation devices, or heat and ice therapy. Different methods of stretching will be shown as well, to increase your range of motion. Once the evaluation visit is complete, your therapist will advise you on a detailed treatment plan, which will include both office visits and at-home treatments and routine exercises. The doctor will also give you a time estimate as to how many visits he believes you need to regain full capacity of that body part, so you can plan ahead!
