Preparing for Your Therapy

You will need a physician’s referral to set up an initial evaluation appointment. Please bring your insurance card and a photo ID, and wear loose fitting clothing.

Arrive about 15 min prior to your scheduled visit. The first visit, the initial evaluation, may take a little longer, probably 45 minutes to an hour. This gives the therapist time to talk to you and take baseline measurements as well as get you started on treatment and a home exercise program.

Hours & Location

Day(s) Time(s)
Monday-Thursday 7 a.m.-  6 p.m.
Friday 7 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.


Talk to your doctor about a referral to OSF Rehabilitation Services.

While a 24 hour notice is optimal, we understand things come up last minute. Should an appointment time or day not work with your schedule, please give our office a call so we can reschedule the appointment. Failure to show up for two scheduled therapy sessions may result in discharge from our services.
