What can I expect on the first visit?
For your first visit, downloading and filling out the relevant forms will speed up your intake. See forms below. On your first visit, please wear comfortable clothing such as sweat pants or a T-shirt and avoid thick, rigid clothing like jeans.
Your attending therapist will perform a detailed assessment which may include: mobility testing, strength testing, neurological tests, spinal motion testing, palpation for neuromuscular tender points and similar tests.
