You will register with our friendly front office staff. They will help you navigate the insurance process and treatment program so you can focus on your recovery.
Then we will proceed through an objective examination of the range of motion, strength, flexibility, mobility and stability. lastly we will use all the information given to provide you with a reason that you are having the pain you are having and a proposed treatment plan to resolve the issue. If this were a post surgical case we follow the protocol provided by the physician.
You will be educated on many different aspects of your injury and recovery such as a home exercise program, anatomy, activity restriction, ergonomics, posture, etc. The education is provided so that each patient has a better understanding of why they are having pain and how the treatment plan will reduce that pain and improve your function and mobility.
With an evaluation you may be sore afterward as we will make you move in ways you may of been avoiding due to pain. In order to treat the problem we need to know where it is coming from and reproducing the pain is the best way to do that.
However the treatment provided should not increase the pain you are feeling as therapy does not always need to be painful. If you are feeling sore or an increase in pain at the end of the session we will try to reduce that feeling prior to you leaving the clinic.
If you have any questions at anytime, please don’t hesitate to call. We want to ensure your satisfaction and full recovery.
