What to Expect
From First Visit to Last, Here’s What to Expect from Paramount
At Paramount, we provide outpatient rehabilitation, which refers to therapy services you receive when you are not admitted to the hospital or residing in a facility. If you’re having trouble standing, walking, moving, completing your daily routine, speaking or swallowing, we can help. We work with patients after surgeries, injuries or illnesses. We also address ongoing age, developmental and disease-related issues as well as chronic pain.
Here’s what to expect during your treatment at Paramount.
Arrive 15 minutes early in order to complete forms detailing your medical history so we can safely and effectively treat you. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and athletic shoes. We won’t engage in a vigorous workout, but you will need to be able to comfortably move through simple exercises for your initial evaluation.
Bring the following items:
- Picture identification
- Insurance identification card
- The name and birthdate of the person who is the insurance holder
- Any written instructions and prescription from your physician
- List of prescription and over-the-counter medicines
- Disability Paperwork (If you are coming for disability testing)
- Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information about your children’s services, please visit our Pediatrics Section
Second (and Later) Visits
Your therapist works in collaboration with you, your family and physicians to create your customized treatment plan. We will develop and provide you with a home exercise program on your second visit. Our pediatric therapists will work in conjunction with your child’s pediatrician, school therapists, and teachers to educate them on your child’s needs. Each person’s course of treatment is unique. Your therapist will explain what to expect and what to wear for each appointment. Please ask questions if you don’t understand what to expect. We want your visits to work for you.
Our need for exercise never ends. At your last visit with us, you can expect your therapist to suggest ongoing exercises and discharge instructions to maintain the progress you’ve made. You will be offered the step down program where you can utilize our gym equipment on your own for 30 days after discharge for free. The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is another great option for continuing your fitness goals after discharge. In order to make that easier, we offer special discounts for former patients who would like to purchase visits on the anti-gravity treadmill.
