Direct Access allows you to be evaluated by an ACE Physical Therapist and receive treatment for up to thirty days before requiring a prescription from a physician or other healthcare provider.
Contact our office and schedule a visit to be evaluated by one of our ACE Physical Therapists who is Direct Access Certified. At your initial visit, you will be evaluated by a Direct Access Certified Physical Therapist. Based upon the nature and severity of your condition, there may be a small possibility that you may be referred to a physician right away for evaluation and further treatment, before starting physical therapy. In most circumstances, however, you will be able to start Physical Therapy treatment immediately and our Physical Therapist will work with you to get you better as soon as possible.
At the end of the 30 days, based upon your progress, you and your treating Physical Therapist will determine together whether it is necessary for you to continue attending physical therapy. In order to continue with therapy, you will need to visit your physician for additional visits to be certified. If you have met your goals for physical therapy, you will be discharged from treatment, and a follow-up appointment with your doctor is not required.
