Direct Access

You Now Have Greater Choice with Your Health Care

Direct Access is your ability to be evaluated and treated by a licensed Physical Therapist without first seeing your physician for a referral.

There are a number of benefits that come from Direct Access.

  • This will give you much quicker access the treatment you deserve.
  • While each patient case is different, clinical research shows that Direct Access should save you money.
  • Physical therapy visits last 30-60 minutes so your condition is thoroughly evaluated.
  • Seeing a physical therapist first, in many cases, will result in fewer overall treatment sessions.
  • Some form of direct access is legal in 48 states including all of California’s surrounding states. The recent change in California law now allows California citizens the same choices for their care as consumers in others states.

There are some limits with Direct Access to Physical Therapy.
