The profession of physical therapy is constantly evolving and its scope of practice continues to grow to offer the best standard of care for its patients. Physical therapists are doing research every day to discover better treatment methods available. Rehabilitation can cover a wide variety of conditions from fall prevention, sports injuries, pre- and post-surgical patients, neck and back pain, shoulder pain, ankle sprains, headaches…. and the list goes on!
Direct Access: No Need for a Referral
Direct access laws can aid in your recovery by allowing a patient to quickly gain access to a physical therapist who can guide you down the road of recovery. There is no need for a doctor’s examination or referral… you can call the clinic and start getting treatment on day one!
At ARC Physical Therapy+, a majority of our physical therapists have received either a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) or a Master’s of Physical Therapy (MSPT) degree. These educational requirements ensure clinicians are capable of thoroughly evaluating, examining, and treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries.
