Physical Therapist FAQ
Physical therapists are doctorate-level movement/musculoskeletal experts who specialize in helping people improve their physical function and quality of life. In other words, physical therapists work with our patients to help them achieve their goals, whether that’s recovering from an injury or surgery, reaching a new athletic level, or minimizing pain.
At your first appointment, your physical therapist will discuss your health history, reasons for seeking their care, and your goals. The physical therapist will then complete a thorough initial evaluation, assessing functional abilities such as your range of motion, strength levels, movement capabilities, and pain levels. Together, you’ll create a plan of care with your physical therapist to assist you in meeting your goals.
Physical therapists are highly skilled clinicians who utilize manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, neuromuscular re-education, therapeutic activities, and physical performance testing, in order to strategically train their patients while optimizing the body’s natural healing processes.
That will depend on the reason why you’re seeking care. Physical therapists work together with their patients and other medical/healthcare providers to develop a personalized treatment plan that takes into account your specific needs.
That will depend on the reason you are coming in, however one of the physical therapists main goals will be to minimize pain. You may also experience some temporary soreness and discomfort as you work new/deconditioned muscles. If you ever feel pain during a session, immediately let your therapist know.
Initial examinations and follow up appointments are typically 60 minutes

Most definitely! We are innovative in our treatment approach and we do not believe in the traditional method of hounding deep into the tissue by recreating pain in order to achieve a positive gain.

Athletic Trainer FAQ
This is well defined by the National Athletic Training Association (NATA) as follows: “Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who render service or treatment, under the direction of or in collaboration with a physician, in accordance with their education, training and the state’s statutes, rules and regulations.”
Athletic trainers provide medical services to all types of patients, not just athletes participating in sports, and can work in a variety of job settings. You can expect a thorough evaluation to improve functional outcomes and patient education to prevent injury and re-injury.
Athletic trainers can offer a variety of services some of which are primary care, injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
Athletic trainers are often confused with personal trainers. There is, however, a large difference in the education, skillset, job duties and patients of an athletic trainer and a personal trainer. The athletic training academic curriculum and clinical training follows the medical model. Athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited master’s program, and then they must take a test for board certification to practice as an athletic trainer. Then they must obtain state licensure as well in the state they choose to practice in.
