What is the evaluation like?

When a PT conducts an initial evaluation visit for physical therapy, they are looking to get an understanding of the individual's condition and create an effective treatment plan. This involves assessing physical abilities, pain levels and mobility restrictions, asking questions about symptoms, obtaining medical history and lifestyle information and even conducting tests. Your therapist will also be observing how the person performs certain activities and exercises to assess any physical limitations that need to be addressed in order to help them reach their physical therapy goals. In short, PT's are looking at all relevant factors when initially evaluating someone for physical therapy so that they can properly provide care that is tailored to their specific needs.

Treatments Provided

Physical therapy offers a variety of treatments to address pain, muscle tension, and mobility. Core therapies focus on pain relief, postural control, and facilitation of normal movement. Pain relief includes manual therapies such as therapeutic massage, stretching exercises, joint mobilization, and education about pain relief techniques. In addition to hands-on treatment intervention, physical therapists provide comprehensive assessment and recommendations for an individualized home exercise program consisting of strength/endurance exercises to improve muscular performance as well as posture training techniques to foster optimal body positioning. Together with the patient's preference and goals in mind, physical therapy treatments engender greater pain relief and improved mobility making it easier to return to everyday activities.
