THINGS TO KNOW
Tips to make your first day more enjoyable:
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We recommend you wear comfortable clothes and sneakers, like you would wear for light exercise outside or at the gym. Wearing a Bayou Physical Therapy t-shirt is ideal as you will look great and get VIP treatment!
HOW LONG WILL I BE THERE?
1 to 2 hours
Your treatment time will depend on your condition and level of tolerance. Our therapy sessions usually average about an hour per discipline. If you are only being treated by physical therapy, then you can expect your time to be about an hour. If you have both physical and occupational therapy, then your time will be about two hours each day you are scheduled. Treatment times very with each person based on their individual needs.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING ON MY FIRST VISIT?
Insurance card, MD referral and any test results
On your initial visit, you should bring your insurance information, your written doctor's order if one was given to you, and any test results you may have such as an x-ray, MRI, EMG, etc.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
A happier, healthier you
Your first visit typically consists of your therapist asking you several questions and performing physical tests. This information provides the therapist with a better understanding of the history of your condition and its contributing factors. This helps to better formulate your individually based treatment plan which will be continually assessed and modified as your treatment progresses.
