What to Expect at Your First Visit

Your first visit to Cary Physical Therapy in Cary, Illinois is your initial evaluation and it lasts about one hour.

The evaluation differs from the doctor’s examination in that he or she is ruling out other metabolic processes that could be causing your problem.

The physical therapy evaluation looks at specific musculoskeletal issues such as your range of motion, your strength, faulty movement patterns, your posture and your balance.

We will schedule the remaining visits on your physical therapy prescription at the end of this visit, so be sure to bring your physical or electronic datebook.

We appreciate your flexibility in scheduling, as many of our patients need after school or after work hours. Some patients find lunch hours or study halls work for them.

Your follow-up appointments will range from about 30 to 45 minutes.
