What Can I Expect at My First Physical Therapy Appointment?


You Can Expect VIP Treatment with MPOWER Physical Therapy

From the moment you walk through the door, everyone on the MPOWER team is inviting, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they do. They want to provide you with the best experience possible and the most effective road to recovery.


You Will Receive a Comprehensive Assessment at Your Initial Physical Therapy Appointment 

Based on your needs, your initial visit will typically be between one hour to one hour and thirty minutes. During this visit, your physical therapist will ask detailed questions about your symptoms and health concerns and how they affect your ability to manage daily tasks.

They also review your medical history and conduct an examination to evaluate muscle strength, coordination, balance, posture, and flexibility.

Based on the information gathered during your initial visit, your physical therapist develops goals and a treatment plan. Your plan may include one-on-one exercise sessions with the physical therapist, as well as a home exercise program.

If this is your first Physical Therapy appointment post-op, the MPOWER team will be sure to provide you with extensive information about precautions in order to get you back on the road to recovery.
