Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What should I expect?

A. You should expect nothing less than a pleasant experience at Oceanside Physical Therapy. We promise a friendly and compassionate experience and will always be there as a resource and advocate for you.

Q. How long is my initial office visit?

A. Set aside about one hour for your initial visit. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment to complete our Patient Forms. Or, you may download these forms ahead of time and bring the completed documents to us at the time of your visit.

Q. What do I wear to my first visit?

A. Wear comfortable clothing that allows access to the injured area to be evaluated. For example, if you’re coming to us for a hip or knee injury, it’s best to wear shorts.

Q. What do I need to bring to my first visit?

A. Please bring your insurance card, a prescription (if you have one) from your doctor, your X-ray or MRI films and any medical reports pertaining to your condition. Please note, you may be responsible for a co-payment for physical therapy services. Per our contract with your insurance company, this co-payment is due at the time of service for each visit with us. Check with your insurance carrier if you have questions about this. Our front desk specialist will also be there for you as a resource to answer questions.

Q. How long is a typical Physical Therapy (PT) treatment?

A. This varies on the treatment plan established by your physical therapist. This will be clearly discussed with you on your evaluation day, and then again as your treatment progresses. Treatments generally take between 30 and 60 minutes.

Q. How is the treatment program decided?

A. This is based on many pieces of information that Bryan Graham will decide upon during your initial visit, then re-evaluate as your treatment progresses. He will work with you to develop a plan to help achieve the mutual goals.

Q. Will I understand all the medical information?

A. Yes, effective communication is integral to any successful Oceanside Physical Therapy treatment. If you ever feel that you are not actively involved in your treatment, or that you do not understand your treatment plan, please let us know.

Q. Will my doctor be informed of what is going on?

A. Oceanside is committed to timely and clear communication to your referring clinician. We send out an initial evaluation report and then send timely progress reports with you when you have follow up visits to your physician. We value the importance of a team approach.

Q. How will we know when treatment is completed?

A. You are ready for discharge once you’ve completed your pre-established therapy goals. As you get closer to these goals, we will establish a discharge plan that enables you to manage your condition at home. A report summarizing the discharge plan and a report will sent to your referring physician.

Q. Does Physical Therapy (PT) always work?

A. Physical Therapy is the treatment of choice for most orthopedic conditions that are not clear cut surgical conditions and the research is rapidly growing to support this treatment option. But there is no guarantee that you will recover 100%. Factors such as healing capabilities and how long you’ve been injured play a role in outcome expectations. At Oceanside Physical Therapy, we feel just about everyone who seeks us out for help has some level of capability to improve with their pain management and/or function. Oceanside Physical Therapy takes great pride in being an advocate for you so, in the event physical therapy is not working for you, we will advocate for the best option to help you find relief. We are here to help you in any way we can!
