60-minute session with Dr. Brandon Pascual
What can I expect during a physical therapy session?
Initially, the physical therapist will ask you questions about the injury, and then will perform tests and measures on you. Based on the tests and measures, the physical therapist may perform skilled manual therapy. Similar to personal training, the physical therapist will have you perform exercises that will aid in your recovery. Unlike common physical therapy clinics, I will be working with you one on one for the whole hour of the appointment.
Do I need a referral from my primary care physician?
You do NOT need a referral. This is a direct access service where you will be assessed and evaluated by a licensed physical therapist. If the physical therapist does suspect a serious or underlying condition, or no attainable progress has been made within 2 weeks, he will ask you to contact your primary care physician.

What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a conservative and non-invasive form of treatment that helps individuals who seek to recover from an injury, relieve pain, prevent future injury, or deal with a chronic condition. Physical therapy assessments will find body and functional impairments that are related to an individual's injury or complaint of pain. Physical therapists use skilled manual therapy, exercise, and neuromuscular reeducation to treat common conditions. The overall goal of physical therapy is to develop, maintain, and restore maximum physical function and movement of the body.
