For your first visit at Orthopedic Spine and Sports Therapy patients should be at least fifteen minutes early for their scheduled appointment. This will allow us adequate time to collect the patient information and go over any questions the patient may have.
The patients initial evaluation will be performed by a licensed physical therapist and certified OMPT. The therapist will first obtain a medical history including mechanism of injury, when it occurred and how has it been progressing, what aggravates it and alleviates the pain, etc. The physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation and explain to the patient exactly what the problem is, how it occurred and how to prevent it in the future. Once the evaluation is done the therapist will develop a treatment plan specific to your needs. You will also be taught exercises to perform independently (a home exercise program). The exercises and treatment performed are very important in improving and maintaining your condition. It is imperative that you perform the exercises as prescribed and attend all scheduled visits to facilitate goal achievement and experience long lasting benefits.

“Just wanted to say thanks for fixing me. To be honest I was hesitant to take the time required for physical therapy and uncertain how much it would help. I must say, I am very glad I didn't listen to myself. It helped my back immensely and got me back to doing what I do. I've spoke with other people regarding their experience with physical therapy. My therapy was much more personalized and I received more face time with an actual therapist than most, which I believe made the difference in my recovery.”JoAnne
"The therapist assigned to me at the OrthopedicSpine & SportsTherapy Center has been extremely instrumental for my continuing recovery from hip surgery. During some of my visits to the center, it was detected that I have other physical conditions that relate to my recovery. These other conditions are presently being addressed with very noticeable results. I finally am able to walk a little straighter. To tell the truth, I’m looking forward to my next appointment to continue with my physical therapy."Richard
"When it was time to start outpatient therapy after having had my first knee replacement, I was not looking forward to it. I came into your facility with a 70 degree angle in March. I will be finishing up my treatments this week and my leg will be between 120-125 degrees. I have to admit that I have enjoyed my therapy sessions and will miss them. First because of the great work you all have done on my knee, and secondly because of the fun I have had. I want to especially thank the therapist for working so hard to get my leg to bend. I will highly recommend your facility to my friends."Mike
"Orthopedic Spine & Sports Therapy provides the best care for their patients. The therapists are OMPT (Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy) certified and are very knowledgeable within their field. I send my patients to Orthopedic Spine & Sports Therapy because I want to protect my reputation. They are a reflection/extension of my practice. My patients all report having a positive experience, and continually display exceptional results. I would recommend Orthopedic Spine & Sports Therapy to any of my patients needing physical therapy."Dr. Muir
