What will happen at my initial evaluation?

Once you check in for your initial evaluation, you will be registered as a new patient. This process includes answering a medical history questionnaire and providing a medication list, so your physical therapist can consider your medical history when developing your unique treatment plan. After updating your physical therapist on your condition, related imaging or test results, current symptoms and problems, and previous treatments you have tried, your physical therapist will evaluate your condition. This evaluation is specific to you and your diagnosis, but may include measurements of swelling, joint motion, strength, special tests, and functional tests as well as observation of posture and movement.
