For your first appointment, you will be in the clinic approximately an hour and a half. The first 30 minutes are spent for intake information and checking insurance benefits.
Once you are with your physical therapist, they will spend the first 20-30 minutes getting a detailed history of your symptoms and get an idea of the types of things you may do during your day that could be contributing to the condition that you are seeing us for.
During your appointment our therapists try to figure out the root of your problem by performing special tests involving multiple body parts that might be affecting your area of pain. Their goal is to solve the problem and not just treat symptoms so that you don’t have the same issue occur later.
We take a little longer to do the evaluation because as much as we want it to be, often times it is not a quick fix. Your problem may be something that requires more focus... and as a result, increased time in the initial evaluation.
We also need for you to bring in your photo ID, insurance card and a list of medications you are taking. As for clothing, we recommend that you wear something comfortable and casual that allows for movement. Do you know where we are located? Do you have any questions regarding your visit? Give us a call at (620) 271-0700.
We look forward to seeing you!
