Your family and their support are critical to your recovery and success. We encourage family participation in your care when it is appropriate and beneficial. Due to the need to protect the privacy of all of our patients, family members must remain in the waiting area unless your therapist requests their presence or assistance.

Children under the age of twelve (12) years old should not be left unattended in our waiting area. Preferably, small children can be left with a caretaker at home. If you have special needs or requests, please speak to your therapist and he or she will make every effort to schedule your treatments at the most convenient times for you.

It is important to wear clothing that will not inhibit your ability to perform exercises and achieve certain ranges of motion with limbs and joints. Loose fitting clothing and comfortable shoes that are conducive to exercise are ideal. For example, patients with hip and knee injuries should wear shorts and tennis shoes.

Please leave all jewelry and valuables (e.g. cash, credit cards, rings and watches) at home or in a safe place to prevent possible loss.

In respect of other patients’ legal right to confidentiality, we cannot share any information about other patients you may see in our rehab clinic. We ask that you please refrain from requesting such information from your therapist.

Since numerous patients exercise simultaneously in our therapy clinic, it is possible for others to observe your receiving care or to overhear information concerning your care. If you have any concerns about your privacy in this setting, please share them with your therapist. He or she will attempt to provide your treatment in a private setting or schedule your appointment during times of lower patient volume.
