Patient Resources

Your First Visit

Your first visit to 3DPT will be a thorough evaluation of your condition/injury and will last approximately 1 hour. It is best to wear comfortable, loose clothing that will allow the therapist access to the area that is being assessed. The goal of the initial evaluation is to diagnose the cause of the problem and construct a treatment plan that will provide you with an optimal outcome. The therapist will explain his/her findings and will explain in detail the plan that will get you back to 100%. It is important that you communicate your goals for your treatment so the therapist can design a treatment plan that meets your needs.

Direct Access

In the state of New Jersey, physical therapists have what is called “Direct Access”. This means that patients are permitted to be seen by a physical therapist without a prescription from a physician. Physical therapists are experts in musculoskeletal problems, and it is recognized that PT’s are the health care provider of choice in treating these types of conditions/injuries. This “direct access” to patients allows them to be seen more quickly and results in better outcomes and fewer treatments. If we suspect a problem that needs to be assessed by a physician, we will help you get an appointment with the appropriate specialist in a timely manner as 3DPT has close relationships with area physicians.

Our Philosophy

When discussing movement, there are three dimensions, or planes – forward and backwards, side to side, and twisting or rotation. Each and every movement in our lives occurs through a combination of all three of these dimensions.

3DPT believes that the best and most efficient way to progress a patient from injury to return to activity is to teach the body to move through these three dimensions.
