What can I expect on my first visit?
If you have booked a full appointment, you can expect to receive a thorough assessment of your injury and the presentation of a recommended customized program of care.
Under normal conditions, you will also receive your first therapy at that time, so please wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that allows you to move easily and permits the physical therapist to access the injured area.
If you have seen a doctor first, please bring any notes or x-rays with you.
