Patient Resources

Here you will find our new patient forms, information on what to expect at your visit, as well as several helpful videos and partners that we trust to help keep you and and our communities safe and healthy.

What to Expect

What to Wear

For your physical therapy visit, you want to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing that allows you to move. Wear clothing that allows us to gain access to the injured part so that we can properly examine your injury.

Initial Evaluation

During your initial visit you will sit down with a physical therapist for a thorough evaluation. The evaluation will enable the physical therapist to correctly identify the etiology of injury, come up with an appropriate plan of care and answer any questions that you may have.

During the initial visit, the PT will come up with a home exercise program so that you can appropriately begin helping yourself at home safely. Your insurance and pertinent billing information will be gathered and the front office staff will give you a complete explanation of your benefits during this first visit.

You are encouraged to ask questions and can feel free to bring a family member or friend to help you comprehend all that transpires during this Initial Evaluation. You can schedule your follow up appointments with our front office staff at the end of this visit for times convenient to your schedule. This first visit is an exciting one, beginning you on your road to recovery.

Recurring Visits

You will never sit and wait for your follow up visits. We pride ourselves on seeing everyone at their scheduled appointment times for all recurring treatment sessions.

After you check in with the front desk, you will be greeted by a member of our Clinical staff who will lead you through your physical therapy routine. You will be spending time, one on one, with a physical therapist during each visit. We are not a gym. We provide individualized care and we need this time to appropriately reassess your condition and progress or modify our plan of care.

When all of our treatment goals have been achieved, we will create a comprehensive home exercise program tailored to your specific needs, activities and lifestyle so that you may return to optimal function and keep yourself in good health. Copays can be paid each visit or at the end of each week.

Atlantic Physical Therapy Center will make every possible effort to schedule your initial evaluation as soon as possible.
