Virginia's New Direct Access to Physical Therapy
You can come directly to physical therapy for 30 days without a prescription
It's simple. Call our office to make an appointment. All you need is to identify a doctor to whom you would like us to send a report to on the day of your first appointment. You can then be seen for 30 days of physical therapy before the doctor needs to write a prescription. It's that easy.
