What will your first appointment entail?
Your first visit will last anywhere between thirty minutes to an hour and will include a comprehensive evaluation and applicable treatment administered by one of our licensed physical therapist. Your physical therapist will review intake paperwork which includes your medical history, diagnostic tests and any recent events that may have contributed to your current condition. Your evaluation will also include assessment of your current functional deficits, pain level and posture, as well as a thorough evaluation of your flexibility, strength, balance and endurance, there will also be a provided form for each individual body part. If for some reason you don’t find the form that best helps describe your pain, please call or email us and we will get something together for you.
Following your evaluation, our techs as well as your physical therapist will thoroughly explain your personalized treatment plan and expectations for recovery. Communication between the patient and physical therapist or tech is of utmost importance at Achieve Health and Wellness and you are an active participant in your recovery.
