What can I expect at a physical therapy appointment?

Equipped with this information, your physical therapist designs a movement and rehabilitation plan to help you return to your previous level of activity.

Dress comfortably and wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off. Your therapist manipulates your trouble area into a number of positions to test your range of motion, strength, function, and movement.
