FAQ: Physical Therapy
» What is a Physical Therapist?
Physical therapists are professionals certified and licensed to specialize in therapy programs for musculoskeletal disorders and injuries, post-surgery recovery, and sports injuries.
» What Should I Expect in My First PT Visit?
During your first visit, Dr. Chaux will perform a comprehensive evaluation lasting about an hour. The assessment includes discussing your medical history, current problems, and your physical therapy goals.
Also, expect muscle tests, postural assessment, neurological screening, and other tests to gain a specific insight into your condition. Dr. Chaux then formulates a clinical judgment and treatment plan based on the information obtained from the evaluation.

Wear loose-fitting clothing so you can expose the problem area easily. For example, it is best to wear shorts if we will be evaluating and treating your knee.
» How Many PT Sessions Will I Need?
The number of PT sessions varies significantly, depending on the diagnosis, past medical history, the severity of the impairment, etc. As such, you may need one session or months of care. Monthly re-evaluations help us assess your progress and recommend the next steps.
