If not now, then when?
While your annual physical by your primary care physician is very important, is not specifically catered to your musculoskeletal system. Physical therapists are experts in biomechanical assessments of the body. Whether you are in pain or not, we can help make sure that you have no underlying issues that might stop you from doing the activities you are passionate about.
Maybe you’ve had physical therapy before and want to ensure you’re doing your exercises correctly and everything is in working order. Maybe you are getting ready to start working out or training and want to make sure your joints and muscles are in good condition. Maybe you’re having knee pain when you swing your golf club. Your annual PT check-up will help you address any issues in advance so you don’t have to stop your activity and come see us for physical therapy.
During your yearly PT checkup, we’ll screen your general body and joint range of motion, flexibility and strength, and perform more specific assessments as needed based on your screen results. If necessary, we’ll provide a corrective exercise program, activity modifications, or recommend a round of PT or massage therapy. An annual PT check-up truly is preventative maintenance for your musculoskeletal system. Your check-up is completely individualized and customized to you and your daily activities and goals.

BENEFITS OF ANNUAL PHYSICAL THERAPY CHECK-UP
Physical therapy should be a part of your annual check-up. A licensed physical therapist will closely examine nerve, muscle, skeletal, cardiovascular, and pulmonary systems through a holistic approach.
We help active adults get back to exercising, feeling fit, and participating in the activities they love without medications, injections, or surgery.
