In the state of New Jersey we have direct access to physical therapy. Direct access allows patients to be seen by a physical therapist without having to see their doctor first. Physical therapists receive extensive education and clinical training in the areas of examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and creating a plan of care for patients.
Physical therapists are also trained to recognize when a patients signs and symptoms are outside the scope of physical therapy and will then refer the patient to the proper health care professional.
If you are experiencing any pain or limitations in your daily activities call us today to schedule a physical therapy evaluation: (980) 766-5663.
