Do I need my doctor to refer me to receive physical therapy treatment?
Don’t have a prescription for physical therapy? No problem!
Individuals can go immediately to a physical therapy clinic of their choosing and obtain the materials and treatment they need, thanks to Direct Access regulations.
Direct Access allows you to see a physical therapist without needing a prescription or referral from a doctor. Patients in all fifty states and the District of Columbia now have “direct access” to physical therapy treatments and programs.
