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.

Over the years we have both needed physical therapy after various injuries and surgeries. Recently we were referred to Athlon by Carl’s surgeon and Gail’s primary healthcare provider. The care that we’ve received at Athlon has been excellent. The big difference we see when comparing Athlon to other therapists we have visited is the atmosphere and attitude of the entire staff. When you walk in you are greeted with a smile at the front desk and after a couple of visits, everyone knows your name. They greet you with a smile, a wave and a “Hi”! You feel like a member of the Athlon family and less like another patient. All the therapists and assistants show genuine interest in helping you understand your treatment and achieving your goals to improve your way of life. Gail will need physical therapy again soon for a hip replacement. She has requested Athlon be her therapist after her surgery.~ Carl & Gail
