How long does physical therapy last?

Mar11th 2020

At ReQuest Physical Therapy, sessions typically last 45-60 minutes. We believe that gives us optimal time to address your problems.

At ReQuest Physical Therapy we work in provider teams which are set-up to allow us to pair you with the therapist we think will bring out your best.  You will see a combination of your physical therapist (who does your evaluation) and the physical therapy assistants that work on his/her team.  Your physical therapist and physical therapy assistants work closely together to coordinate your care to ensure continuity and optimal outcomes. 

Most patients attend 10-12 sessions, but the following factors can increase or decrease your number of sessions:

  • The type of problem or surgery you have had
  • The severity of the condition
  • How long you’ve had the condition 
  • Your ability to progress with your home exercises

Some problems require only a few sessions while others may require more than 20. Please call our office to discuss your problem with one of our staff to get a better idea of the number of sessions needed for your problem.
