Do I need a prescription to begin physical therapy?
Direct access refers to the ability of patients to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without being referred by a doctor or other healthcare practitioner. If you feel you have a problem that may benefit from the skilled services of a physical therapist, NJ allows for self-referral to a physical therapist. If a physician referral is warranted based on our findings or required by your insurance (Medicare), we can then assist you in this process.
