Your First Visit – What To Expect in Physical Therapy
Your first visit to your physical therapist clinic in Boise or Meridian will include a detailed initial evaluation. This evaluation will help the therapist to identify your problems using special testing procedures.
Once your physical therapist has evaluated your condition, they will be able to design a plan of care that specifically meets your needs. If you have certain concerns or goals, make them known at this time so your therapist understands what you are expecting from your visits. As a part of the program design, expect a treatment timeline with realistic goals. This timeline may be changed as you progress, depending on how well your body responds to treatment.
