Roots Specialty Services Patient Evaluation

Roots Evaluations

Your First Next Step to Health & Wellness

Whether it’s for information gathering, a second opinion, or the first step in your treatment plan, Roots Evaluations differentiate the level of personalized service we provide, the level of comfort you’ll experience, and the level of success you can expect to realize.

Every Roots Evaluation consists of a 90-minute comprehensive assessment where we discover more about you and your body and we use that information develop a personalized plan of care based on your input:

Physical Therapy Evaluation: Uniquely tailored to meet your fitness, mobility, and performance goals, we will assess your posture, strength, balance, dynamic movement and body mechanics, and develop a detailed plan to get you (or keep you) moving.

Pelvic Health Evaluation: A highly specialized consultation that involves evaluating pain, weakness or dysfunction with a treatment plan that will support your pelvic organs, maintain control and function of the bowel and bladder, and contribute to sexual function.

Fitness, Wellness + Performance Evaluation: Assess posture, strength, mobility, flexibility, balance, and body / lifting / movement mechanics to establish a fitness baseline, and design a movement + exercise + wellness plan specific to your individual goals.

We take a different approach to healing at Roots, focusing on the person in front of us, not just a body part, joint, or injury. Care plans reflect a collaboration based on what will work for you, creating a partnership that can be as enjoyable as it is healing.
