Frequently Asked Questions
What should I bring to my first physical therapy appointment?
In preparation for your first appointment, please make sure to bring in the following:
- Physical Therapy prescription and/or referral
- Any relevant MRI/X-Ray reports or medical paperwork
- Your insurance card(s) and photo I.D.
Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to fill in any necessary paperwork. Or if you’d like, you can print our New Patient Intake Form and have this completed beforehand to save time when you arrive at the office.
What if my physical therapy appointment is related to an automobile accident or worker's compensation case?
If your appointment is related to an automobile accident or worker’s compensation claim, please have available your case manager or insurance adjuster contact names, phone number/email address and claim number.
What if I was receiving physical therapy treatments in another office?
If you were being treated elsewhere for Physical Therapy, please be sure to inform our front desk before your appointment so we may obtain information about your prior physical therapy treatment plans to ensure you are provided with the best care possible.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?
If you are unable to keep your physical therapy appointment, kindly call the office to cancel or reschedule 24 hours in advance.
What should I wear to my physical therapy appointment?
It is recommended to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your appointments to ensure the therapist can properly evaluate and treat the injured area. For example, if your appointment is for a knee injury, be sure to wear shorts or loose fitting pants so our physical therapy team can examine and manipulate your knee efficiently.
