First Visit

First visit at Active Physical Therapy

During your first visit with us, you’ll be introduced to your Doctor of Physical Therapy. Your physical therapist will ask you a variety of simple questions about your condition. Some of these questions could include when your pain started, how your injury occurred, and other general questions about your medical history.

 

Your therapist will perform an initial evaluation to test your strength, mobility, imbalances, and any other movement restrictions you might have as a result of your condition. Based on your results, your physical therapist creates a personalized treatment plan that best fits into your lifestyle. The personalized treatment plan aims to strengthen your weaknesses in order to get you back to your daily routines pain and difficulty free in the most efficient way possible.

 

We’re excited to begin working with you!
