What is Direct Access?
Well, it is just as it sounds. You have direct access to a Physical Therapist without going to a Physician to get a referral for Physical Therapy.
How Direct Access Benefits You:
Access to care at appropriate time
YOU can come see us without a physician referral. Waiting longer periods of time before seeking care may prolong the time to get you back to normal.
Appropriate screening & referrals
As Doctors of Physical Therapy, we are equipped with the knowledge and tools to evaluate and screen for musculoskeletal issues and “RED FLAG” issues. If we find in our examination that we cannot help due to it being out of our scope, we can then refer you to the appropriate healthcare provider.
Seeing a Physical Therapist first for your musculoskeletal issue can bring you immediate care; saving you time and money in the long run.
We at BRPT-Lake are here for you! Come on in directly to our clinic without a referral, and let us help get you Better than your Best!
For any questions, give us a call at any of our 7 locations.
