Your first visit to the clinic will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. You will first meet with the receptionist who will collect the forms (New Patient Forms) you have completed or give you the forms to complete. As a courtesy, your insurance (Insurances Accepted) will be called as soon as we have the information to identify the coverage you have for our services. Be aware if your appointment is after office hours of your insurance company, you will want to relay the appropriate information to our receptionist (801-250-6733) earlier so that you will understand your coverage before your visit.
The information you have provided and information from your doctor (if you have one) will be reviewed by a Physical Therapist (Meet Lance and Matt). You be given a brief tour of the clinic (physical therapy) and then enter a treatment room where you can change into shorts, sweats or something comfortable. A physical therapist will ask questions regarding your condition, health status, current activity level and your expectations regarding therapy. A full examination will be completed including assessments of posture, movement, coordination, strength, endurance, muscle length, palpation, neurological testing, passive movement and other appropriate tests for your condition and expected outcomes.
The therapist will identify the areas of concerns and answer two important questions: 1) what the dysfunction is and 2) what needs to be changed to improve. This will include a home exercise program to address movement patterns, strength and flexibility issues and appropriate treatment in the clinic to expedite your healing process.
Discharge from therapy will be determined by your goals and expectations and the condition in which you present to the clinic to correct. Typical expectations are for 6-8 sessions depending on the above-stated facts.
