What should I wear for my first appointment?

It is important to wear comfortable, loose fitting attire for your first appointment, as well as for each consecutive treatment session. Depending on the area being treated, remember to consider that the therapist will need to examine the area and the clothing that you choose should be capable of exposing the area to be treated. It may be necessary to wear a gown during portions of the evaluation and treatment.

What should I expect at my first appointment?

Initially, you will be required to fill out a Registration Form and Medical Questionnaire which can be found on our website.  If you choose to complete this ahead of time, please bring it with you to your first appointment.  You may also complete the form upon your arrival at your first appointment. Once you are registered, the physical therapist will talk with you and take you to the treatment area. The physical therapist will then begin a comprehensive evaluation during which he/she will test the range of motion, strength, and perform special tests on the affected area. Based upon the findings of your initial evaluation, the therapist will develop and initiate a treatment plan. He/she will also answer any questions that you may have.

Will my insurance cover physical therapy?

While Rebound Physical Therapy accepts most major insurance plans, it is always wise to contact your insurance provider to confirm that your physical therapy services will be covered. Also, check if our physical therapy needs to be pre-approved or authorized. Rebound Physical Therapy will also confirm your physical therapy benefits with your insurance provider, however, this is not a guarantee of coverage.

How long is each session going to take?

Is it too early for me to start Physical Therapy?

Every condition is different, however, for most conditions,  the sooner you start treatment,  the sooner you will recover. Most post-surgical and injury treatments focus on returning you back to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible.

I received therapy before from another clinic and did not find the relief I was looking for. Can you help me?

Every therapist has a different philosophy and utilizes different treatment techniques. At Rebound Physical Therapy we use evidence-based practices to achieve optimal outcomes. We will do our best to solve your problem.  However, we also understand that physical therapy has its limitations.  We assure you that if necessary, we can direct/refer you to the appropriate medical care provider who can assist you if we are unable to help.

What should I wear to my appointment?


Only eight and a half months after my ACL replacement and Lateral Meniscus surgery, I crossed the finish line of the 2006 Honolulu Marathon, my first marathon. It was a miraculous recovery beginning with the inability to walk without crutches to covering the 26.2 elevated miles. My recovery and race are a testament to the ability and motivation techniques of the therapists at Rebound. I could not have done it without their help and encouragement. I would recommend Rebound to any athlete or non-athlete striving to make a full recovery.
