How long will my appointments last?
Your initial appointment with your Therapist will last approximately one hour. This will give the Therapist enough time to evaluate your pain/injury, and develop a treatment plan specifically for you. After the initial appointment, all other visits should last between 45 – 60 minutes, depending on the extent of your injury.
