PHYSICAL THERAPY EVALUATION
A comprehensive assessment of the patient, including everything from medical history to functional movement assessment, and everything in between. We take the time to dive deep and discover your capabilities and limitations. These typically take 60-90 minutes, depending on a number of factors, but we know that one size does not fit all. Each patient is different and may require a little additional time to be thorough.
A personally catered plan often combining manual therapy, strengthening, balance training, stretching, dynamic stability, and motor control, in addition to many other things. Each session is specified to the particular needs of the patient, typically between 30 and 60 minutes. Treatment sessions at Impetus take extra time to focus on patient education, a difference that helps patients get better in fewer than half the sessions needed at a typical PT clinic on average.
INJURY RISK ASSESSMENT
Designed to identify risk factors for acute traumatic injuries, we utilize the several of the latest assessment tools to help identify risk of injury in sport or on the job. These take approximately 15-20 minutes.
Ideal for any sport requiring agility with mild to heavy levels of physical contact, including but not limited to Football, Cross Country, Lacrosse, Soccer, Basketball, Cross-fit, and Hockey. Ages 13+ only, and participants must be uninjured.

"The Runner's Tune-up was one of the best things I've done to improve my running career. I have been running for over 20 years, and minor recurring injuries kept popping up, sometimes leaving me to cross-train for months. Dr. Buccola looked at the entire picture of me as a runner: my training habits, overall health, flexibility, stride, gait, form, and so much more. With this thorough assessment, he was able to pinpoint specific ways for me to avoid further injury by improving my form and increasing strength. I received so much valuable information in our session; I am now a much more conscience and confident runner. Everyone who runs, from beginners to advanced runners, will get so much out a Runner's Tune-up session with Impetus PT." -Tara W.
