Physical Therapy should not hurt for the majority of diagnoses, but there may be a small amount of muscle soreness 1-2 days following an initial evaluation and the start of an exercise program. We encourage consistent performance of the individual home exercise program and the use of ice for 10-15 minutes post exercise. The patient should stop any activity that creates significant pain and they should call their physical therapist immediately.
Following an initial evaluation your therapist will fax a copy of the evaluation to the referring physician. They also fax all pertinent progress notes and discharge summaries. If necessary, the therapist will call your physician with any questions regarding progress or diagnosis. It is expected that a patient inform the physical therapist of all upcoming doctor appointments.
