Direct Access Physical Therapy

Imagine being able to start your recovery journey without waiting for a physician’s referral. Think of the time and pain you could save. That’s what Direct Access offers. It’s a program that enables you to seek treatment from a physical therapist right away, and at Continuum Wellness, we’re proud to be a top provider of direct access physical therapy services.

What is Direct Access?

As of January 1, 2015, all U.S. states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands grant patients the ability to seek some level of treatment from a physical therapist without needing a referral from a physician beforehand. The full extent of what services you can seek from your physical therapist without physician referral varies from state to state. 

Some states still require you to seek a referral before treatment for certain conditions and injuries. You can check your state’s Direct Access policy here before scheduling an appointment with our team for treatment or visiting your physician.
