Your first visit will last approximately one hour and will include a comprehensive evaluation and applicable treatment administered by a licensed physical therapist. Your physical therapist will review your medical history, diagnostic tests and any recent events that may have contributed to your current condition. Your evaluation will include assessment of your current functional deficits, pain level and posture, as well as a thorough evaluation of your flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.
Following your evaluation, your physical therapist will thoroughly explain your personalized treatment plan, expectations for recovery and provide you with a customized home program to streamline your progress. Communication between the patient, physical therapist, and referring provider is a priority at VPT and you are an active participant in your recovery.
