Physical Therapy Appointments
No need to have a doctor referral to see a physical therapist! Your first visit is spent with the physical therapist. You are the center of attention! You get to tell your story! The physical therapist's role is to listen, problem-solve, ensure you are a candidate for physical therapy, and create a plan of action with you. By the end of the session, you should have an idea of how long it will take to get back to life.
Your feedback determines what happens for your follow up appointments. Because you work with the same physical therapist every appointment, you have a tight knit team. Your plan of action can be immediately changed.
Although the reason you are seeking physical therapy services and your feedback determine what happens during your appointments, more often than not, you'll be active during your sessions. You'll probably perform exercise at just the right level to challenge you. You need to be continually challenged to progress from where you are to where you want to be. Your physical therapist will also perform hands on techniques to help expediate getting you back to life.
Cost of Services
The cost for services is dependent upon how much time you spend with your physical therapist and what is done during your session with your physical therapist. You can learn more here: Cost of Services.
