What do I need to know before my first appointment?

Elite-level physical therapy and rehab services are no longer attainable at most clinics who accept insurance and require their therapist to see more than two to four patients per hour. You are NOT a number. You deserve and require individual attention. This practice was founded on the principles of individualized and direct, one-on-one care for our patients and clients.

The Fitness Lab is the top personal training and physical therapy clinic in the greater Denver Metro Area specializing in functional movement, advanced manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and neuromuscular reeducation. All therapy evaluations and treatment sessions are one hour. Personal training sessions vary between 45 minutes to 1 hour. When you’re here, you’re family.

What to expect during the evaluation

  • You will check in at the front desk and a member of our staff will help you navigate the remaining paperwork.
  • You will meet with your physical therapist or personal trainer for the initial evaluation.
  • During the evaluation your therapist or trainer will ask questions about your medical history, current pain, injury history, training and performance goals..
  • Your functional movement, strength, coordination, and much more will be evaluated. Our purpose is to help you, so please ensure you communicate to your therapist or trainer if anything is hurting or bothering you during the examination.
  • Your therapist or trainer will recommend and prepare a course of treatment or training program to ensure the quickest recovery and the best results. Your therapist or trainer will discuss all recommendations with you.
  • For physical therapy patients, there will likely be some treatments performed the first day to get you started on your road to recovery. However, during the next visit, you will get into the full swing of your treatment plan.
  • Before leaving we will get you scheduled for your following visit. The number of therapy sessions needed or training interval will be discussed with you. We offer many convenient appointment times, however, prime times can become busy, so it is best to book ahead as much as possible.
  • For physical therapy patients, your therapist will write up their findings and treatment plan to submit to your insurance company, referring physician, and/ or other medical professional if applicable.
  • If you have any questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to call us at (303) 800-2829.
