What to Expect at Your First Visit for Physical Therapy

Your first physical therapy visit will usually last 45-60 minutes and will include a thorough physical therapy evaluation that includes an interview about your particular problem and how it is affecting your abilities, a clinical examination, a discussion of the physical therapy plan, and, possibly, initial treatment interventions.

You should arrive 15-20 minutes early for your first appointment to complete paperwork or 5-10 minutes early if you have complete paperwork provided to you on this website. You will need to bring photo identification and your insurance cards if applicable.
