FAQ: How Should You Dress For Physical Therapy?

How Should You Dress

Here at Borja Physical Therapy, our world revolves around our patients’ needs! In fact, our experienced and highly trained team is here to make recovery a reachable goal! We specialize in keeping you active. We empower your decision to self-heal the natural way, without relying on pain pills, injections or surgery. Our clinic offers a private changing room that you may use if you need to change your clothes before your session. So, how should you dress for your physical therapy sessions?

We encourage our patients to wear looser clothing, such as workout clothes, to their sessions. This allows the therapist to easily access your injury. It also doesn’t restrict your movements during your sessions.

For injuries such as knee or upper thigh injuries, the therapist may suggest wearing shorts in order to reach the site of injury, while not restricting movement or causing discomfort from rolling up the pant leg.

We offer private, secure areas to keep your belongings next to each treatment table. We recommend arriving a few minutes before your scheduled appointment so you have time to change. This helps to make sure you spend your time working with the physical therapist.
