What To Expect
You’re ready to schedule an appointment with us. Wonderful! We’re excited to meet you and help you get back to moving at your best.
We recommend coming in activewear or something you are comfortable stretching and moving around in because, well, you will be moving. Close-toed shoes are ideal.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Come on In
When you walk in you’ll be greeted by our awesome front desk to handle any paperwork before your appointment. Soon after you’ll meet your Doctor, who you’ll be with your entire appointment.
Don’t worry, we’ll never abandon you in a corner with a list of exercises to do.
This is our favorite part, where we get to know you! – we will cover your injury or limitation, performance/medical history, any of your questions or concerns, and, most importantly, your goals.

Do I need to see a physician or obtain a referral prior to my first appointment?
No. The state of Arizona allows patients to access physical therapy without any restrictions or limitations. This means there is no need to obtain a physician referral or prescription prior to beginning your treatment at Strive PT. However, keep in mind that some insurances may require physician involvement in care as a condition of reimbursement. So, if you plan to apply your out-of-network insurance benefits, we’d recommend confirming those requirements with your insurance provider.
Once you and your therapist establish a care plan, you will attend regular appointments based on the frequency prescribed by them. These appointments will include a mix of manual (i.e., hands-on) therapy and guided exercise. Unlike appointments in many other PT practices, you will spend your entire appointment with your physical therapist. During these appointments, your PT may conduct periodic follow-up tests to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.your
