During your first visit to Martin Foot & Ankle, you’ll spend about 60-75 minutes one-on-one with a physical therapist. In that time, your therapist will ask you to perform various tasks and exercises to complete a thorough evaluation of your lower extremity function. This establishes baseline measurements in areas such as strength, range of motion, balance, and more.
After that, we spend time discussing these result with you in detail—along with why you’re getting those results and what you need to do to improve them. At this time you and your therapist will set a list of goals, and your therapist will put together a program to help you get there.
In subsequent sessions, your progress will be measured against the baseline evaluation from your first appointment, as well as your progress toward achieving your personal goals.
If you have an injury or other limitation preventing you from reaching your activity goals, talk to the licensed professionals at Martin Foot & Ankle. Give us a call today at 717-757-3537, or fill out our contact form online.
