What to expect
If you feel apprehensive about your first physical therapy appointment, we got your back. The moment you enter our clinic, you’ll be greeted by our friendly front desk staff who will welcome you, check you in, and answer any insurance or billing questions you may have. They will need you to fill out a few forms, which you can pre-fill out here.
From there, your physical therapist will bring you back into a private treatment room and you’ll spend some time chatting about your condition. They will want to know things like your past medical history, how long you’ve had it for, what makes it worse, what makes it better etc,. All of these questions help your physical therapist come to the most accurate diagnosis. Your physical therapist will then perform a thorough evaluation of strength, range of motion and a functional biomechanical analysis of the involved region. They will then collaborate with you to figure out the best, most comprehensive treatment plan for your specific needs. You’ll then get some form of treatment on your first day, whether manual therapies or exercises. Your physical therapist will provide you extensive education on at home exercises and advice on how to manage your condition between appointments. They will teach you these at-home exercises to check your form and send you them via email. You will leave Agile with a clear idea of your root cause problem and a defined plan of care towards your goals.
