Direct access allows patients to seek physical therapy care without the need for a referral from a Physician or PCP (unless your insurance company requires one). Direct access allows the patient to directly seek the services of a physical therapist and helps save time and money by cutting out healthcare provider visits, unnecessary tests, and referrals to other specialists. Often, healthcare providers refer patients out to physical therapy as a first line of defense against strains, sprains, and other injuries. Many conditions can be successfully evaluated and treated with no expensive medical tests. Physical Therapists are trained to screen for and recognize pathologies outside their scope of practice and refer to the appropriate medical professional.
