What do I need to bring to my child's therapy session?
If you have a prescription for therapy, be sure to bring it with you. You will also need your driver's license and insurance card. We ask that patients arrive 30 minutes early for their first appointment to allow for initial paperwork. This will help your child not miss valuable evaluation time with their therapist.
How will my child's therapy schedule be structured?
Therapy is typically scheduled two to three times per week at first, and sessions last from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the doctor's orders and individual needs. If you're not able to attend a scheduled appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance. If you know your personal schedule, try to schedule your child's therapy visits as far out as possible to ensure that you have a better selection of appointment times.
What should my child wear for their therapy session?
Have them wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the area being evaluated or rehabilitated. If they are coming to therapy for a knee or leg problem, bring a pair of shorts for them. It may also be helpful to have them wear athletic shoes, if they have them. In some cases, your child may be asked to change into a hospital gown to make their evaluation easier.
Will rehabilitation be painful?
While it is sometimes necessary to provoke the symptoms during your child's initial evaluation to help determine the source of their problem, a good deal of their therapy will be focused on relieving your pain. Many people have the misconception that physical therapy has to be painful to be effective, but this is simply untrue. Some techniques and exercises may be uncomfortable but should not be painful.
How long will my child need therapy services?
Your child's therapist will consult with your child's physician to determine the duration of the therapy that will provide the best results.
