If you’re waiting for a physician’s referral or prescription before deciding to avail the services of a Physical Therapist, you run a great risk of aggravating your condition or injury. To precisely avoid such a nightmarish possibility, the state of Florida now has enabled Direct Access. Direct Access, as the name suggests, lets you access Physical Therapy services directly. At least, to an extent that you as a patient can receive an “evaluation and some form of treatment without physician referral.”
In short, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) tells you that should you feel the need to avail a physical therapy service, you are free to visit your nearest Physical Therapy Clinic for preliminary evaluations/consultations. Remember, undue delays can cost you dearly. If ‘something doesn’t feel right’ and you are unsure what it is, then why should you wait? Come to Maya Physical Therapy Center first and get treated immediately.
