What can I expect during my first physical therapy visit?

February 2, 2017

You can expect to spend one hour with Anne during your initial visit.  This time will be spent reviewing your health history and goals for treatment, as well as learning about your condition and how physical therapy can help.

A physical assessment will also be completed, which will involve assessing flexibility and strength of involved muscles.

In the case of pelvic floor dysfunction, an internal muscle examination may be recommended.  While it is not necessary, the internal assessment is a very small, but important piece of the initial consultation.
