What to Expect
Your First Physical Therapy Appointment at IPT
During your initial visit at Integrative Physiotherapy, you will have a 30 minute initial evaluation with Dr. Kummrow so he can get to know your condition. As a patient, you should be prepared to go through a review of medical history, including past injuries, surgeries, and areas of pain or soreness. It is likely you will have to perform comprehensive tests to determine range of motion, gait, balance, and reflexes. These initial tests determine the best modes of treatment for optimal outcomes. We then establish realistic goals and expectations within an appropriate time frame.
At IPT our treatment focuses on body mechanics – that is, how the body functions while performing physical activities. This approach bolsters overall functionality and enhances sport performance. IPT’s treatment philosophy is based upon current best evidence-based practice in conjunction with innovative new methods to improve recovery time and prevent further injury. Our patients have referred to our physical therapy style as half Pilates and half cross-fit for all ages and abilities. Come with an open mind and a readiness to work!
