PHYSICAL THERAPY

As a crucial step in every patient’s recovery; both, surgical and non-surgical conditions. Our therapists are well-trained to assist each patient with their individual goals—whether it’s a sports-related injury or general wear and tear.  AOS PT is committed to active communication with your doctor to optimize your progression and ultimately, your return to everyday life.

What to Wear

Please dress comfortably with the ability to expose the treatment area if needed. Feel free to bring a change of clothes with you if this appointment is before or after work/school.

How long will each PT visit last?

At AOS we feel that each patient is unique in their treatment plan and therefore are allowed as much time as they need to complete their visit without feeling rushed in the process. An estimated visit time would be between 1-1.5 hrs, but we are flexible if you are limited with time.

Will I be sore after therapy?

While our goal is to make each patient as comfortable as possible in therapy, some surgical conditions due require us to facilitate more motion or strengthen areas of concern. This can sometimes result in soreness after treatment, but will improve with each visit.

How long will I be in therapy?

Our goal at AOS PT is to get you back to your previous level of function as soon as possible. Those time frames are dependent on several factors including the following: extent of injury/condition, rehabilitation protocols, post-surgical time frames, patient response to treatment, insurance limitations, and patient requests.
