Helpful Hints Before You Go for Physical Therapy

Write down and bring any questions you have to your appointment. Don’t be shy about asking your physical therapist about your injury or condition.

During your treatment, you may be asked to do exercises using weights or other gym equipment, so dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes, such as a tee shirt or sweatshirt, sweatpants or athletic shorts, and athletic shoes and socks. Bring a hair tie if you have long hair, and leave your jewelry at home.

In order to design an individualized program, the therapist will need approximately one hour for your first appointment.

You may be given a home exercise program. Feel free to have a family member or caregiver attend your appointment to help you learn the home exercises.

Please tell the physical therapist if your injury or condition is aggravated by activities such as household chores. Your physical therapist may be able to instruct you on better body mechanics for these activities in order to eliminate discomfort and reduce the chance of a recurrence of the injury.
