Your Initial Evaluation
When you meet with a physical therapist from Austin Physical Therapy for your initial evaluation, we will discuss your medical history and any current issues you may be experiencing. We will also discuss the level of pain you are suffering from and how the pain is limiting your activity and/or impacting your day-to-day life.
There are certain tests your physical therapist may do during your initial evaluation, depending on what physical issues you are having. These tests may include:
- Assessment of posture – During this test, your physical therapist will check the position of the joints compared to what the ideal position should be.
- Muscle testing – Your physical therapist will check your muscles to see the quality of contractions and strength. With this test, the therapist is looking for any pain and weakness associated with contractions.
- Neurological screening – The physical therapist may also want to evaluate how the patient’s nerves are communicating with the muscles, including how they sense pain, temperature, touch, and vibration.
- Palpations – The therapist will touch the area where the pain is coming from, checking for any swelling, tenderness, tissue temperature, inflammation, soft tissue integrity, and more.
- Range of motion (ROM) – With this test, the physical therapist will move the joints of the patient to determine what the quality of movement is and if there are any restrictions to that movement.
There are a variety of other tests that your physical therapist may want to perform to either rule out or confirm any additional issues or problems. These tests are determined by what the patient’s complaints or condition are.
