What is a Physical Therapy Evaluation? Dr. Andy Tseng Explains

Physical therapy is a specialty that focuses on optimizing movement. 

The first thing when a client comes to see us is we will do a physical therapy evaluation and a huge part of it is we will perform movement analysis to see what specific exercises the client is complaining of pain or difficult to do. 

We will try to identify which part of the movement has deficits and also identify the underlying cause of the specific deficit.

Is it from weakness of a certain muscle? 

From tightness of another muscle or other related anatomic structures like ligaments, a tendon, or the joint.

After identifying the cause or the involved anatomic structure we then develop a very specific plan of care and exercise program or treatment programs to address those issues. The end goal is to optimize movement to help you return to the activities you used to be able to do.
