Physical Therapy and Wellness Care
Ascend Physical Therapy & Wellness takes a holistic approach to your treatment, meaning our goal is to assist you in feeling whole, healed and as pain free as possible. We will combine traditional physical therapy with a wellness program so you can be involved on your personal road to wellness for the future.
You will have the same physical therapist throughout your treatment with our clinic to ensure consistency of therapy and the opportunity to create a comfortable relationship. All the therapists have different strengths and in some cases, a different set of eyes can be beneficial. You deserve to live life to the fullest and we want to help you in every way we can!
What to expect on your first appointment
No two patients are exactly alike and no two people heal the same, even if they have similar conditions. Your road to wellness starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your condition or injury. We will review your medical history. Your range of motion will be tested, along with your balance and coordination, posture, muscle performance and motor function. This allows us to customize a program of therapy geared specifically to your needs.
We will discuss the proposed course of action with you, explain our strategy, and project its anticipated outcome.
You can expect your treatment to start during this first visit, so please wear or bring comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that will allow the therapist to properly assess your problem areas. Exercise wear such as sweats, t-shirts and shorts are recommended attire.
Please plan 60 to 90 minutes for your first appointment.
After your treatment, you will be assigned some home exercises.
What to do in advance of your first visit
We are pleased that you have chosen our clinic, and our holistic approach is geared to treating you with care and compassion as our guest on the road to wellness. There are some things you can do in advance of your first meeting with us that will allow us to move forward with your therapies as quickly as possible.

- Your health insurance card and driver's license. We will need to make a photocopy of these cards to ensure we collect all necessary information to bill your insurance company

- Co-payment, if applicable.
