Thank you for entrusting Nesin Therapy with your care.
What to bring?
- Bring a list of your current medications (This is a Medicare requirement).
- With recent changes in state law, a physician's referral is no longer required for a physical therapist to perform an initial evaluation (but will be needed for follow-up visits). If you already have a referral from your physician, nurse practitioner, chiropractor, or dentist, please bring it. If your medical provider's office told you they would fax your referral, please let us know so we can confirm we have received it.
- Arrive 30 minutes early for your Initial Evaluation.
- Wear loose, comfortable clothing.
- Frequency of sessions is typically two times per week, then may decrease as you progress.
- Treatment sessions last 30-75 minutes.
- The treatments generally consist of a combination of manual therapy, posture and balance, strengthening and stretching, and modalities to relieve pain and inflammation. Manual therapy is the cornerstone of our practice. Click here for an explanation of manual treatment.
- The TEAM approach is an important aspect of your physical therapy program. This provides a more comprehensive approach as therapists combine their extensive experience to optimize your rehabilitation program.
- You will be assigned a home exercise program to address specific problems found during the course of your treatment.
- Consistent attendance and providing your therapist with specific feedback regarding your symptoms are also important factors in your recovery.
- In general, the more effort you put into your therapy, the more you will get out of it.
