We continually hear from patients, clients, friends and family that they are fed up with the medical system and wasted time/money trying to find the best help. One area people nationwide are saving time, money and frustration is with Direct Access laws which provide the consumer direct access to physical therapy services, without needing a referral. Here is a great publication from the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) from 2022 with data through September of 2022.
If you have specific questions about the most current direct access laws for physical therapy services in your state, contact the APTA or your state board. A simple online search for “state board of physical therapy insert your state here” or “direct access physical therapy your state here“, should do the trick.
