Where Do I Park?
The Leschi business area has 2 public parking lots on each end of it. Both lots have 2 hour free parking spots available. Do not park in the rows labeled for “Moorage.” Additionally, there is free 1 hour parking on the street in front of our office. Finally, there are 4 visitor spots available in the building parking lot located behind the building. Please do not park in numbered spots as those are used by other businesses.
If you need assistance accessing our clinic, please call the Office Coordinator and let her know.
What Do I Wear?
It is best to wear comfortable, flexible clothing to your visits. Please avoid high heels or flip-flops. It is important to discuss your normal footwear with your PT as part of your treatment plan.
What to Expect During Your First Visit
During the first visit, your physical therapist will want to discuss your current symptoms and medical history in some detail.
For patients being seen for dizziness and related symptoms, a variety of tests will be performed to assess the function of your vestibular and nervous systems. Additional tests will be done to assess your balance and walking abilities. Your therapist has many years of experience working with patients who are dizzy or imbalanced. Be assured that the evaluation will be done in a way that is manageable for you to tolerate.
For patients being seen for orthopedic symptoms, your therapist will look at how your entire system works to create the movement patterns causing your problems. This will be a head-to-toe assessment of both orthopedic and neurologic factors to find the key drivers to your problem.
