frequently asked questions
What Should I Expect During My First Session?
Your first session at SRPT is your physical therapy evaluation.
Due to COVID-19, starting September 2021 we will be transitioning to an online patient paperwork
This is an effort to decrease patient wait times and reduce the number of patients in the lobby to effectively socially distance. When you schedule your initial evaluation, our staff will review how to complete your paperwork via email or text message.
We kindly ask that you complete your online paperwork prior to your appointment time. Please bring your insurance card(s) and driver's license. After completing the check-in process, you will be taken to a private treatment room to have a one-on-one session with your physical therapist. They will review your symptoms and medical history and perform specific tests and measurements to determine your individualized therapy plan. Your therapist will answer any questions you may have. They may also provide you with a home exercise program and will schedule your next treatment visits based on your diagnosis.
What Should I Bring To My First Visit?
You should bring your insurance card and driver's license. Please bring a list of your current medications and any relevant test results, such as X-rays or MRI. We ask that you complete your online paperwork prior to your visit.
What Should I Wear To My Appointments?
You should wear comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for exercise. We recommend wearing loose pants or shorts to access your hips, knee, or ankle if we are addressing a lower-body injury or surgery. If performing balance training, please wear appropriate shoes with good support and backs. We do not recommend wearing slippers, house-shoes, or flip flops due to the increased risk of falling.
