Have one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy perform a comprehensive musculoskeletal examination on you! Most individuals are lucky to get ten minutes one-on-one with their doctor, but at Total Balance, we take pride in scheduling a full hour to systematically look at your whole body joint by joint and discuss all issues that you are having at this time. You owe it to yourself to see a practitioner who will take the time to understand what you are looking to get from therapy and be thorough when performing the examination.
Here's what you can expect:
-On the day of your initial appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early in order to fill out registration forms. Remember to bring your insurance information as well.
-Wear comfortable clothing. You will be doing several different types of movements and exercises, and we want to ensure your comfort as well as make sure that we are able to fully assess all areas adequately (ex. if you have hip/knee pain, wearing shorts is appropriate)
-The therapist you are working with will perform a thorough evaluation and then take the time to discuss appropriate treatment options with you; as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have about the plan of care.
