AthletePlus can help you. We can see you before you have seen a doctor. It is called Direct Access. Currently, all 50 states and the District of Columbia (DC) allow patients to be evaluated by a physical therapist without a physician’s prior referral. We recommend you see your doctor first and we may refer you to a doctor if needed, but we can get you started on your path to a successful return to your life. Delays in care result in higher costs, decreased functional outcomes, and frustration to patients seeking physical therapy treatment. Eliminating arbitrary barriers results in timely, more effective care. For example, a 2012 study in Spine states if you hurt your back, starting PT within the first 14 days can save you on average over $2700. Call 751-8437 Now.
