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.
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.
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.
