When you will visit the therapist for the first time, they will not immediately give you the therapy. They will first evaluate your case and access your complete condition. The therapist will take measurements to gather information about your illness or injury. And, it can happen that the impairment may be measured including the following – the strength of your body, the range of motion, the body’s flexibility, whether you can balance or not, the mobility of the joints, any neurological function if any, pain and cardiac functions, pulmonary function, and overall complete function and mobility of the body and its parts.
Treatment Goals –
After your PT has gathered the details about your injury or illness or as the case maybe they will make a prognosis of your condition and they can offer you strategies to help your overall mobility and feel better. Then, your PT will discuss your objectives for physical therapy and work to create a treatment plan for your rehab. After all of this process, you can start taking physical therapy from the PT.
