Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and a pair of rubber-soled sneakers. Your first session will be comprised of a comprehensive evaluation. 

Yes, please do. Although we can request these from your doctor or lab facility, it is better if you provide them for us during your first visit so that we can perform a more complete and accurate evaluation. You will be asked to fill out some basic paperwork, so don’t forget to bring your prescription for physical therapy.

We perform various types of treatments, and will customize a program combining the best techniques specific for your particular injury. The modalities and techniques we use include functional and therapeutic exercises, stretching, joint mobilization, Blood Flow Restriction, myofascial release, soft tissue massage, electrical stimulation, Theraputic Ultrasound, and thermal modalities. The treatment program will be performed in a private treatment room as well as a gym setting using a variety of athletic and rehabilitation equipment.

Because we focus on rehabilitation as well as performance enhancement, we have a full gym on the premises, including a variety of equipment intended solely for rehabilitation.

Generally, your initial visit will last just over 1 hour since the therapist will need to evaluate your condition, provide treatment, and give home instructions. Following visits will last 50-60 minutes depending on your injury and level of activity. 

Most prescriptions and treatment schedules are for 2-3 visits per week, but this will vary based on your condition and physical ability.  Treatment plans usually are 6-12 weeks with periodic re-evaluations and regular follow-up visits with your doctor. 

  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to check in.
  • Bring all necessary insurance verification, physicians’ prescriptions, list of medications, radiographs (MRI’s, X-rays), etc.
  • Bring or wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and a pair of rubber soled sneakers.
