THE FIRST VISIT

After an initial physical examination and diagnosis by a health care provider, you will receive a prescription for physical therapy treatment. At the first visit (which lasts about an hour), you will undergo a comprehensive initial evaluation, which includes an extensive history, physical exam, and objective testing and measuring. The Ultimate Rehab therapist will also work with you to establish your rehabilitation goals.
Following the evaluation, an individualized plan of care is developed to meet your specific rehabilitative needs. Whether the objective is flexibility, strength, endurance, or a combination, the therapist creates a comprehensive rehabilitation program focused on total body care, injury prevention, as well as a safe and timely return to work, life, or sports. At this point, treatment is set to begin.

GOOD TO KNOW

For the first visit, you should bring your insurance card, prescription, and any paperwork that you may have received. If you bring the completed paperwork with you, you should arrive 5-10 minutes early. Otherwise, it's a good idea to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out your paperwork. If you have any operative reports, MRI or X-ray results, you should bring those as well. Additionally, you should bring any type of brace, splint, or crutches that you may be using. Please wear comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear to your appointments. In general, physical therapy treatments last one hour.

AFTER THE FIRST VISIT

Once the plan of care is established, you and the Ultimate Rehab therapist work side-by-side to make sure the goals outlined in the plan are met. Ultimate Rehab's well-trained, professional staff utilizes the most progressive treatment options and techniques to ensure the best possible recovery.
If you don't understand the treatment or you feel pain, talk to your Ultimate Rehab therapist. It's important to ask questions, stay involved in your treatment process, and know what's going on and why. With physical therapy, pain may be a warning signal. By pushing yourself through too much pain, you may do more harm than good. We will listen attentively to your needs, while calming any worries and explaining any uncertainties.
You are our partner in your rehabilitation. So it is likely that you will receive a home exercise program and instructions. It is imperative that you adhere to the program by doing your exercises in the order and frequency noted. Doing so will help you reduce pain, restore physical function, and ultimately heal faster and get moving again.

THE CHOICE

Your health care provider may suggest a specific rehabilitation company or provide you with a list of physical therapists in your area. In some cases, your insurance company will guide you to the "in network" providers that are included in your insurance plan. But the final decision as to where you receive rehabilitation services is up to you.
Be sure to let your health care provider or insurance company know that Ultimate Rehab is your first choice when it comes to rehabilitation services. We participate in many insurance plans; however, if Ultimate Rehab is not in your network, look into whether your plan has out-of-network benefits that will allow you to receive our first-rate services with some level of benefit. We appreciate your interest in Ultimate Rehab, and we'd love to work with you on your return to an active lifestyle.
