What should I expect during a physical rehabilitation visit?

You should arrive at the office wearing athletic clothing and with a water bottle and towel. When you begin your session, your provider starts with therapies to warm up your muscles, like electrical stimulation or heat therapy. After your warmup, they take you through a series of exercises to target your pain or diagnosis.

Exercises may include the use of resistance bands, free weights, or your own body weight. Once you’ve completed your exercises, your provider then helps you cool down with soft tissue therapy, cold therapy, or other passive modalities aimed at relaxing your muscles and preventing soreness after your session.

Some soreness for a day following your session is normal, just like soreness after working out at the gym. If soreness is a concern for you, your provider provides recommendations to prevent discomfort at home, such as ice packs or stretching.
