What happens if my pain or problems return?
Flare-ups are common. If you have a flare-up, give us a call. We may suggest that you come back and see us, return to your doctor, or modify your daily activities or exercise routine.
Why are people referred to physical therapy?
You and others may be referred to physical therapy because of a movement dysfunction associated with pain. Your difficulty with moving part(s) of your body results in limitations with your daily activities. (e.g., difficulty getting out of a chair, an inability to play sports, or trouble with walking). Physical therapists treat these movements dysfunctions and their associated paints and restore your body's ability to move in a normal matter.
What should I wear?
We usually recommend that patients wear looser-fitting exercise clothing and sneakers for maximum comfort.
