Your Physical Therapy Experience
During your first visit at Next Step Physical Therapy, your physical therapist will evaluate your condition and your overall level of fitness. Together we will outline a set of goals and work together to design an appropriate treatment plan. Because every individual has different needs, and because the same injury in two patients may have been caused by vastly different circumstances, we won't know specifically what type of treatment you will receive until a full evaluation is performed.
During the course of your program, you may undergo some of these common treatment applications:
Therapeutic excercise and activity to increase muscle strength and increase range of motion and improve function.
Manual techniques to increase joint range of motion and flexibility.
Soft tissue mobilization to increase range of motion and decrease pain and inflammation.
Neuromuscular electric stimulation and ultrasound to decrease swelling, pain/inflammation and increase tissue extensability.
