Please wear or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing that will allow the therapist to expose the affected regions of the body. Exercise wear such as sweats, t-shirts, and shorts are recommended.
Please bring to your appointment:
During your first visit or evaluation, a licensed physical therapist will examine you and discuss your medical history, why you are seeking physical therapy care and any other concerns. Please plan to be in our facility for 60-90 minutes for your first appointment. Your therapist can tell you how long each follow-up appointment will be, usually 60 minutes. Your therapist will complete a series of tests and measures; for example measuring flexibility and strength, as well as your ability to perform specific functional activities. Following the examination, your therapist will review their finding with you and with your input, outline a treatment plan and therapy goals designed to help you recover and get back to your regular activities as quickly as possible.

"I have definitely noticed a difference in my body with training and recovery and performance Before starting physical therapy with Colleen Russell I definitely had a lot of asymmetries in my body For example, my left quad was more than 5 cm smaller than my right side As of Feb 8, there is only a 1 cm difference That is one of the most obvious and visible physical changes, but I have also noticed positive things in training like the ability to maintain my hip position when sprinting and jumping My hips were really weak when I started PT with Colleen and that has been one area of focus in therapy sessions My hips feel a lot stronger and I am able to maintain stronger, more powerful positions during long and hard workouts Instead of fatiguing, I am able to complete the workouts maintaining good form Which is really important being a multievent athlete, because we spend long hours practicing and on competition days sometimes up to six hours, and the ability to maintain good physical form throughout a workout or competition is really important for seeing the best results possible I feel like I can last through an entire tough work out without certain muscle groups fatiguing, because we have been working to make sure everything is strong and stays strong"~ Sharon Day, Olympic Athlete
