What should I bring to my physical therapy appointment?

Your first physical therapy appointment is an opportunity for you and your physical therapist to get to know each other. Facilitate this process by bringing along everything you need. This includes a written list of questions you want to ask, along with any paperwork we asked you to complete ahead of time. Also write down details of your health history that you might forget, such as the dates of any surgeries or hospitalizations.

Dress comfortably in loose clothing that allows your therapist to easily access the affected part of your body. For example, a tank top is a great choice for a shoulder injury, while shorts are best for knee injuries. If you use any assistive devices, such as a cane or a brace, bring those along. Finally, the office staff will need your photo ID and your insurance card.
