Please wear or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing that will allow the therapist to expose the affected regions of the body. Exercise wear such as sweats, t-shirts, and shorts are recommended.
Please bring to your appointment:
During your first visit or evaluation, a licensed physical therapist will examine you and discuss your medical history, why you are seeking physical therapy care and any other concerns. Please plan to be in our facility for 60-90 minutes for your first appointment. Your therapist can tell you how long each follow-up appointment will be, usually 60 minutes. Your therapist will complete a series of tests and measures; for example measuring flexibility and strength, as well as your ability to perform specific functional activities. Following the examination, your therapist will review their finding with you and with your input, outline a treatment plan and therapy goals designed to help you recover and get back to your regular activities as quickly as possible.

"I highly recommend Specialized Physical Therapy (SPT). You walk in the door at the North Asheville location and are immediately met by Kari, the outgoing and super organized receptionist. Then you are met with a smile by the same dedicated and knowledgeable person who explains and helps you through your individualized hands-on therapy session. Taylor and his skilled assistants are terrific - they listen to you and watch you and care about you. The equipment is state-of-the-art. When I leave SPT, I breathe a little deeper, walk a little taller, and feel a whole lot better. I always look forward to my next appointment. Parking is plentiful. Don’t miss this gem with a happy, upbeat vibe!"~ Margery (Google Review)
