Making your first phone call to your physical therapist saves your health and your budget
You're injured or in pain, now what?
How many times have you sustained an injury or developed pain and you didn't know where to turn for relief? During these difficult economic times, it is important for you to consider cost effective care. If you have direct access to your physical therapist, studies show that seeing a physical therapist first for the treatment of pain syndromes can save you significant healthcare dollars and more importantly, prevent a re-occurence.
Most insurance plans DO NOT require a referral for you to see a physical therapist directly. This approach could reduce your use of pain medications, anti-inflammatory drugs and the need for X-rays or expensive MRIs. Obviously there will be conditions that require evaluation by a physician, but that will be determined after a thorough evaluation.
