Your first Legacy Therapy and Wellness Group appointment will include a comprehensive evaluation by your licensed Physical Therapist. Your evaluation will include a review of: your current health/movement problem, your pain/symptoms vs. daily activities, your past medical history, your current medications list, the goals of your treating physician(s), any physician/health precautions, your goals with Physical Therapy, and your basic wellness/fitness practices. Then, your Physical Therapist will evaluate your posture, your movements, your walking/mobility patterns, involved body area muscle tone, neurological function, and take specialized measurements of your joint mobility, strength, and key functional movements. This information will help your Physical Therapist develop an individualized treatment plan with you.
Your evaluation appointment typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, depending on how many areas of injury/restricted mobility you may have, your level of pain/injury, and how many health conditions you may have. Follow-up sessions are usually about 60 minutes. Shorter sessions can be arranged on request.
Patients who are unable to drive, have functional need for a family member with you, please notify our receptionist as you schedule your evaluation visit.
