Access to physical therapy does not require a prescription from your physician. DIRECT ACCESS (DA) allows you to see a licensed physical therapist immediately so you can get the treatment you need, when you need it.
Simply stated, the sooner an injury is treated, the quicker the recovery. Waiting for an appointment with a physician can impede the healing process because effective treatment is delayed. Injured muscles and joints get stiff, weak and scar tissue can develop. More importantly, you are not able to do the activities you want to do. At Synergy Physical Therapy, our clinic has at least one DA licensed therapist. Our DA licensed therapist is qualified to evaluate your condition and begin the much-needed treatment immediately.
