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.
