A good rule of thumb is to simply wear loose-fitting clothing that allows you to move freely and which provides easy access to the area of the body that’s giving you problems. If your visit is due to knee pain or injury, be sure to wear shorts. If the issue is with your neck or shoulders, wear a loose T-shirt or tank top. We want you to be comfortable as you are fully evaluated and treated.
This ultimately depends on your condition and what you and the physical therapist determine is your best course of treatment for achieving your goals. Often, treatments are multifaceted and may include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, joint mobilization, patient education, and so on. Your physical therapist will fully discuss all your treatment options and recommendations before proceeding with your individual course of treatment.
Sessions and treatments will usually last 45 minutes.
Sometimes additional treatments may be required, but not always. If your problem returns, simply give us a call and we’ll consider the best option for moving forward. This may include additional visits with your physical therapist, or it may simply involve changes in exercise and/or your daily routine.
