On your initial physical therapy visit (this will be your evaluation):

  • Please download (1) the Consent/Medical History form and (2) either the Major Medical form or the Medicare form at your leisure, fill them out, and bring them with you.
  • Please come 15 minutes early to fill out additional paperwork.
  • We will obtain baseline measurements of range of motion, strength, and arm girth (to detect swelling).
  • You will be instructed on simple exercises based on your phase of recovery.
  • Your home exercise program and patient education begin here.

Follow-up visits (treatment time will be approximately one hour):

  • Depending upon where you are in your recovery, a physical therapy program to suit your needs will be developed.
  • In addition to manual treatment to restore range of motion and scar tissue mobility, your physical therapy program will consist of slow, progressive strengthening and cardiovascular exercises.

Upon discharge from physical therapy:

  • It will be important to maintain the goals you have achieved and continue to a lead a healthy lifestyle.
