Physical therapists have years of university level training in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology (study of joint movement), neurology, and many of the other medical sciences. Our physical therapists have graduated from accredited physical therapy programs and are state licensed. Depending on the university, the physical therapy program is either a Associates, Masters or Doctoral level degree.
Each patient’s diagnosis is different, so together with your referring physician, your therapist will develop a plan of care that is right for you. Your plan of care and number of visits will be determined during your first visit and explained to you by your physical therapist.
Typically, the first session lasts for 1 hour 15 minutes. Each session after that may be 55-60 minutes. The amount of time will be based on your specific needs, and your therapist will discuss this with you.
