Dear Valued Patient,
We are glad that you have taken the first step in achieving better health and we are honored that you have chosen Orthopedic Physical Therapy and Wellness Inc. as your partner. Once you meet John Soriano, PT, and his friendly staff, you will understand why we are San Francisco’s top physical therapy choice.
Our patients come to us for acute and chronic injuries, post-operation therapy, sports injuries, arthritis, debilitating diseases, loss of flexibility and mobility, edema, chronic pain, etc. We offer the most comprehensive techniques in cutting-edge skilled physical therapy. We provide each patient with a variety of services which may include acupressure, myofacial release, strain and counter-strain, ultrasound, and joint and spinal mobilization.
Included in your sessions are nutrition counseling and valuable information about supplementation. We provide a three-day food intake record and show you the effects of your food-intake on your health. We monitor your body mass index (BMI) and provide you with positive feedback for improvement. Also, we monitor your heart-rate and blood pressure to strengthen your heart.
Upon your evaluation, you can speak to John Soriano and a physical therapy aide about your goals. They will help you understand how specific therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques will elicit real results. The physical therapist will develop a plan forward that you are comfortable with. During the following sessions you will be partnered with a physical therapy aide for fifty-five minutes. The physical therapist will monitor your improvement and corroborate with your referring physician. If you have any questions about your therapy, please do not hesitate to ask.
To provide you with excellent service and to save you time we have provided you with a secure link to complete the Initial Evaluation paperwork in advance. By clicking on Initial Evaluation Link you will be directed to a form you can complete from the comfort of your own home. Once you complete the questionnaire, click submit and we will prepare your paperwork for you prior to your arrival.
