Rehabilitation and Appointment Expectations
In addition to the skills and modalities used by our therapists, your successful rehabilitation depends on the commitment, attendance and efforts of you as the patient as well. Ideal frequency is at least once a week in order to maintain function gains and improve upon them. At Body we pride ourselves on working with our patient’s schedules so that your therapy sessions have the least amount of impact in your daily life. In addition, your timely attendance is important to us to help keep our wait times short.
Please arrive five to ten minutes ahead of your scheduled appointment. This allows your mind and body to start transitioning from an active busy mode to a more relaxing and receiving mode. Your early arrival gives additional time for your therapist to evaluate your body’s needs and set expectations for your session. It is also your chance to communicate to your therapist, any details from your previous session, changes in injury/ pain as well as any new conditions your body may be carrying. We are committed to accommodating your scheduling needs and are available Monday through Saturday from 8:30am to 8:45pm. Each treatment room is outfitted with hydraulic massage tables for ease of transition to accommodate those in wheelchairs, scooters or boots. We also welcome translators, parents or loved ones to attend your session.
