At United Physical Therapy, you should expect to begin each visit without delay. Your initial evaluation will consist of an interview and a physical examination. The length of the exam averages 30-60 minutes. You may be asked to change into a gown or shorts to allow the therapist to obtain the most accurate information. You may want to bring your own shorts if you are being treated for your knee, hip, or low back. Women may want to wear a tank top or sports bra if being treated for their shoulder, neck or mid-back. Every physical examination consists of palpation and a variety of manual tests to assess strength, range of motion, joint mobility, pain, and functional abilities. Once the evaluation is complete, the therapist will discuss the clinical findings with you and describe the treatment plan and our goal is to get you going toward improvement on that initial visit. Time permitting, treatment will begin immediately following the evaluation. Typically, you will be provided a home program at the conclusion of your first visit.
