Physical Therapists are considered movement specialists. Pain-free movement is crucial to your daily life, your ability to earn a living and your ability to pursue your favorite leisure activities. Your Physical Therapist will get you back to doing what you love by reducing your pain and improving the way your body functions.
You have the ability to choose PT first in the State of California. You can see your Physical Therapist for an evaluation without seeing a medical doctor first. This can save you money and time. Your Physical Therapist will determine if you are a candidate for Physical Therapy treatment or if you should instead be seen by a medical doctor first. This is considered direct access to physical therapy services.
You also have the freedom to choose your own Physical Therapist and where you would like to receive your care.
