Because of our expertise. NMSMC is widely regarded as a leading expert in physical therapy and sports medicine in northern Michigan. Area physicians regularly send themselves, their own office staff and family members to our facilities. We are dedicated to resolving your problems in a welcoming and relaxed environment. Every patient receives personalized care. If you are still not sure, feel free to give us a call and arrange to stop in to speak to one of our therapists.
On your first visit, your physical therapist will perform an evaluation, which will last one hour.The evaluation involves a thorough history, and assessment of your range of motion, muscular strength, and muscular flexibility for a more specific understanding of your condition. Upon completion, your physical therapist will recommend a treatment plan including stretching and strengthening exercises and possible modalities to decrease pain and swelling, as needed. A treatment program will be developed aimed at resolving the problems identified, as well as to attain the goals you set in conjunction with your physical therapist.
Your treatment program will vary according to what the physical therapist finds in the evaluation. At that time, we encourage you to schedule your appointment times for the whole program to ensure your physical therapist is available to accommodate your preferred appointment time. Program visits will last approximately 1 hour.
