Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely, as you may be required to perform exercises. If the condition for which you are being treated involves a specific region of the body, it is preferred that this area be as accessible as possible. If you are currently using any assistive devices (walker, cane, crutches, orthotics), please bring them with you.

Typically you will not. Your current performance and response to treatment will be assessed at each visit. Your therapist will ensure that you receive adjustments in your care to maximally benefit from each therapy session.
Attend your visits as scheduled. Missed visits prolong recovery time and impact the success of your therapy. Closely follow your therapist’s instructions related to activities to avoid. If you are given a home exercise program, ensure that you perform it as directed.
Not all patients require a home exercise program. However, if your therapist provides you with one, ensure that you follow it as directed.
Yes, if a physician referred you for therapy, we will send the initial evaluation, as well as periodic progress reports as your plan of care progresses. We will also notify your physician of any unexpected findings. We value the importance of a team approach and are committed to timely and clear communication with your referring physician.
Flare ups are not uncommon. If you have a flare up (exacerbation), give us a call. We may suggest you come back to see us for a free screen to determine if therapy will be beneficial, if you should return to your doctor, or simply modify your daily activities.
