What to Expect From Your First PT Visit at Functional Phyzio

In our busy lives, it can feel incredibly frustrating to feel like you can’t do the things you want to, that you can’t meet your goals, or you feel limited in lifting or the activities that bring you joy because of pain, discomfort, weakness.

I became a physical therapist, because I want to empower every individual to meet their goals to live a fulfilling, expansive life, where you get to follow your power and your strength to find your joy.

It’s also why I chose to work at Functional Phyzio, because I feel we have an amazing set up that enables us to help you get better faster, more easily, and for a lifetime.

What can you expect from your first visit with us?

Your first appointment will be 1 hour of 1 on 1 time with a Doctor of Physical Therapy, where we’ll dive deep into the problem you wanted solved and what your goals are. We’ll do a full body strength and mobility assessment, and perform special tests to isolate the root cause of your issues, and we’ll perform hands-on work to start relieving some of your symptoms, and make a change, day 1.

What does that actually look like?

I’d like to introduce you to one of my clients, Loial.

Loial was active, deadlifts, and has his own gym routine, but he kept on getting pretty crippling back pain with standing long hours at work, and after his workouts. During Loial’s evaluation, I assessed Loial’s movement patterns, tested his strength, and performed soft tissue massage of specific muscles in his kinetic chain that were contributing to his pain. Within that hour, Loial’s back pain reduced by half. Not every client will get such a dramatic change, but Loial is a great example of how my expertise as a PT helps me see the muscles involved in your movement patterns, and how they’re limiting you.

From the evaluation, we build you a customized plan of care that includes relief tools, a strengthening routine, and neurological challenges to rebuild your movement foundation from the ground up, so you can leave this problem behind forever.

At Functional Phyzio, there are no aids or techs. You’ll never get passed off to someone else, and you’ll spend that entire hour with an expert of movement and anatomy, who will be with you every step of the way along your journey to your more empowered self.
