Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physical therapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians. Our physical therapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it.
While every patient’s condition and pain is unique, your physical therapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels. The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.
Working with you and your doctor, we can discuss your options and help determine if physical therapy will be the right choice for you. Contact us today to discuss your current condition with one of our physical therapists.

Please arrive 15-30 minutes prior to your evaluation in order to complete the intake paper work. You can download the paperwork from our website to make the process easier. At that time, our office staff will review your benefits quoted from your insurance provider and collect any patient responsibility due. During your first visit, your therapist will conduct an initial evaluation to assess your current condition. Your initial evaluation may consist of objective findings followed by an appropriate treatment plan, a home-exercise program, and discussing your plan of care. A copy of your Initial Evaluation will be sent to your physician. Please plan for at least one hour for the initial evaluation.
Please have your prescription, photo ID, and insurance card(s) available. This will allow us to verify your insurance benefits and provide you with an estimate of coverage. Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothes that you can move around in. Please bring a change of clothes when coming from work/school.
To bring on your first visit:
A referral (if needed) for physical therapy from your physician.
Insurance information (we will make a copy of your card(s)).
Print out the patient forms, fill them out, and bring them with you.
In case of an automobile accident or worker’s compensation claim, also bring any case manager or insurance adjuster contact names, phone numbers, and claim number.
Please arrive 15-30 minutes early to complete any remaining paperwork, so you can maximize your time in your evaluation.
Please wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to your problem areas.
Unfortunately, we cannot predict your treatment frequency or length without a full examination of your medical history and a full assessment. Your plan of care will be discussed during your initial evaluation and may need to be adjusted during your therapy depending on your progress.
We are in contact with your physician throughout your therapy. We send your physician a copy of the initial evaluation as well as a progress note every 4 weeks.
If you are running late, please call and let us know so that we can accommodate your schedule. We ask that you be on time to all appointments; however, we do understand that situations arrive where you may be late. In those situations, we may have to reschedule your appointment.
Please give us 24 hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment to avoid a $25 cancellation fee. If 24 hours notice is not given, the $25 cancellation fee will be collected at your next appointment. Please Note: Any late arrival more than 15 minutes may result in the cancellation of your appointment.
