The initial evaluation will occur during the first treatment session. Our evaluation consists of three components:
First, a Subjective Interview is Performed
During this we listen to the patient to obtain a thorough history of the condition, past treatments, goals, and expectations of physical therapy as well as address any concerns the patient may have.
Second, a Comprehensive Physical Examination is Performed
The purpose of this examination is to determine the physical causes of the problem and functional limitations that need to be addressed to develop an individualized plan of care and treatment approach.
The Third Component is Your Initial Treatment
We begin addressing the problems determined during the examination. We strongly believe that treatment during the first visit is essential as it starts the healing process.
