Q1: What will happen at my physical therapy treatment sessions?

Ans: At your initial appointment, one of our fully licensed physical therapists will work with you one-on-one to evaluate your specific condition and set your individual goals based on your needs and your physician’s recommendations. At subsequent visits to Jamaica Physical Therapy, your therapist may work with you to improve your function, range of motion, strength, and flexibility using weights and resistance equipment, as well as incorporating different balance and coordination training activities. In addition to physical exercises, your therapist may use any of our various treatment modalities available. These modalities include: manual therapy, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, ultrasound, phonophoresis, cryotherapy, moist heat, traction, and paraffin wax treatment, among others.
