Yes! You have Direct Access* to physical therapy in Oregon.
In some cases, your medical insurance plan may require a referral from your doctor prior to starting physical therapy. We will need your insurance information to verify your benefits and requirements prior to starting your therapy. If a referral is required, we will let you know and assist you in obtaining it.
We enjoy collaborating with the physicians and other healthcare providers in your life and will maintain close communication with them to support your overall health and wellness.
If your insurance doesn't require a referral, you have the opportunity to start therapy sooner which will enable you to start feeling better that much faster. Starting sooner will mean less pain, a more rapid recovery and return to your normal life more quickly. It may be wise however, to visit your doctor first if your condition is the result of trauma, like a fall or an impact. X-rays or additional testing may be required to rule out a more serious injury.
*Direct Access gives patients in Oregon the ability to seek physical therapy care without having a referral from a physician.
