What is direct access?

Direct Access means seeing a physical therapist without a referral!! When you get hurt, you can start physical therapy immediately.

This saves time waiting to see your doctor, saves you money not having to pay a copay for your doctor, and gets you started on the path to recovery.

In California, you may see your physical therapist 12 times within 45 days. After that you need a medical diagnosis from an MD, DO, or DPM. This allows for most people to recover from their injury without needing to see a doctor.

We screen patients to make sure physical therapy is appropriate fr their injury. Refer to a doctor if imaging is necessary. 

Most insurances will cover patients for direct access, we are happy to check if your plan does!
