What should I expect from my Physical Therapy session?

Your first session will consist of a detailed evaluation. In this total body assessment you can expect a postural analysis, assessment of strength and flexibility, gait analysis, and movement analysis, and assessment of sports performance when appropriate. The physical therapist will discuss their finding with you and develop a plan of care to address these findings.
