• Physical therapy can address a number of problems. Below is a list of more common diagnoses that we treat at Albany Med. While we can evaluate your injury you must have a current prescription from a doctor in order to receive treatment.

Your initial evaluation will be very thorough and take from 45 minutes to one hour. Your therapist will conduct a complete evaluation that will examine multiple systems in order to best treat your condition. Subsequent visits usually last from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
