Going for therapies can be really helpful for the body. You can have the highly-educated, well-trained, and licensed therapists to handle your body. If you are confident with the therapist's work, you should schedule an appointment with him or her. Here are what you should do to prepare for your first time physical therapy Portland.

First, you should create a list of those symptoms you are suffering from. Better take a note on how long the said symptoms have been making you suffer. You might have a lot of symptoms you want to complain about. To go through with the list, list first the symptom that has been making you suffer the most and go down from that.

In listing the symptoms you are suffering from, you better be specific with them. This means that you have to take note of details relevant to the symptoms you are suffering from. If it gets worse at certain times or during certain activities, if it is throbbing or sharp, you have to take note of these details as accurately as you can.

It is appropriate to have a goal you want to reach with your treatment. You must tell your therapist about it so that you two can work together to achieve that end result. You better find a therapist who can understand the goals you have and help you work on it. These goals might be avoiding a surgery, reducing your pain, or increasing one's mobility.

Your medical history should be revealed to the therapist. Knowing the medical history of the patient will allow the said therapist to know more about what your symptoms are actually for. List all of the chronic conditions you have as well as injuries and accidents you experienced. Environmental factors such as prolonged sitting and standing at work might worsen these symptoms so note of that as well.

Better make a list of the medications you are taking. The medications can either be a prescription one or an over-the-counter one. Do not forget to include the vitamins and supplements you are taking as well. The medications you have listed beforehand can hep the therapist know more of your total health profile.

If you have any laboratory or diagnostic reports at hand, then you better bring those with you to the therapist. Do not underestimate the knowledge of the therapist in the health care trade. They should know how to read these reports. When you bring these reports to the therapist, they will have a clear picture of what the problem is.

If you are getting therapies as a result of the referral from physicians or other professionals, then you better provide the therapist their numbers. This can become necessary when the therapist wants to contact these physicians. The related people can be kept informed about the progress for the treatment.

You better come to the said treatment dressed appropriately. When dressing up for the treatment, better dress while keeping movement in mind. Some therapist will want to start the treatment even on the first visit. That is why it is recommended for patients to come to their first session in comfortable clothing.
