What can I expect at each visit? 

At Broadlawns Physical and Occupational Therapy, we believe in providing you with a personalized treatment plan for your specific condition. In each session, a physical therapist will work with you one-on-one. Our priority is for you to feel comfortable and confident during your treatment.

During your initial appointment, your physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation to assess your range of motion and determine the root cause of your condition. Did you know that knee pain could actually be coming from a problem with your ankle or hip?

Following your initial evaluation, we will develop a plan of care based on your personal goals and physical abilities. Your physical therapist may use manual therapy techniques to help improve joint and muscle function and mobilize soft tissue. You may also be given exercises that will allow you to continue your therapy at home. By the time you complete your therapy program, you will have the knowledge and tools to help care for yourself and prevent re-injury.
