New Patient Information

The following information will help you prepare for your first visit at
SportsCare Physical Therapy or Armworks Hand Therapy:

What to Bring

Please bring each of the following to your first appointment for us to make a copy of:

  • Drivers license or
    Identification card
  • Insurance card
  • Doctor Referral (if required)
  • Claim number (for Workers’ Compensation or Motor Vehicle Accident cases)
  • List of medications you are currently taking/prescribed

What to Wear

  • Comfortable clothing which permits access to the injured area. For Physical Therapy, please refrain from wearing skirts/dresses, high heels and tight shirts/pants.

What to Expect During
Your Evaluation

Your initial appointment will be an evaluation with a licensed physical therapist or hand therapist. Our goal is to gather as much information as necessary to properly evaluate your condition and create an appropriate treatment plan. Your first appointment will typically last between 45-60 minutes, but please be prepared to stay slightly longer if needed.

Your physical or hand therapist will have a discussion on the following topics:

  • Your medical history as it relates to your injury
  • Your current complaints and intensity/duration of symptoms
  • How the injury is limiting you during work, play and/or life
  • Your goals and expectations

If symptoms allow, your physical or hand therapist will measure:

  • Swelling, flexibility, strength, balance, coordination and posture
  • Performance during various body mechanic exercises and functional activities

Creating a Treatment Plan

Your therapist will take all the information from the evaluation and work with you to create a manageable, progressive exercise program which will be performed during visits and while at home. The goal is to regain strength and function through exercises that mimic your every day tasks and chores, so your communication and input is very valuable.
