Your Physical Therapist will be doing a full evaluation of your situation. The therapist will be looking for any loss of normal motion, flexibility or strength in the affected area or surrounding areas.

After the initial evaluation, you will undergo regular treatments with your physical therapist. Appointments for all your visits will be scheduled in advance and will last between 30 minutes to 45 minutes depending on your insurance. Your physical therapist will be in contact with your designated physician as the treatment progresses. Treatment may include:
