New Patient Information
Please download and complete all forms prior to your first appointment. The information you provide is important for your PT to get a good understanding of why your are seeking physical therapy and early completion allows for best use of time at your initial evaluation.
What to Expect
Evaluations and treatments at Balance+Flow are always one on one with our licensed physical therapists. The initial assessment will include a thorough intake and medical history for the issue that brought you in, review any previous studies or reports, and understand your expectations & goals.
A physical examination will also be completed which will likely involve movements of the spine and extremities both actively, passively and functionally. The therapist will perform any necessary special tests to determine which specific portion of a joint, ligament, tendon, and/or muscle appears most effected or diminished.
The information gathered will help the PT begin to develop a plan specific to your individual needs. Explanation of findings and diagnosis will be discussed and then specific activities/exercises will be issued to complete at home prior to your next visit.
Depending on the complexity of the issue that brings you in, sometimes the initial visit is more consultation than treatment. Understanding and hearing your story is paramount to us in order to develop the right PT program for you.
Visits are typically 45-60minutes in a private, calm environment.
