Doctor Prescription No Longer Required for Physical Therapy

State Law Update: A doctor prescription is no longer required to see a physical therapist! This means you can feel better now without waiting for a referral from your physician. Prioritize treatment options that are less invasive, less addictive, and more personalized. Start adding regular physical therapy into your wellness routine before chronic pain limits your daily function.

You don’t need to live with pain. Now, the choice is yours. Choose Northern Rehab today, and stop letting pain control your life.

Worried about insurance?

We’ll answer all your questions. Chances are we can accept your insurance plan or work with you on a cost-effective treatment plan to ensure you get the best care.

Referred somewhere else?

That’s okay, you can still CHOOSE Northern Rehab! You aren’t required to have physical therapy where your doctor sends you. You have a choice. Explore your options and give us a call.

Telehealth Virtual Appointments Now Available

Your health remains our highest priority, and Northern Rehab remains available to take care of your physical therapy needs at all 4 clinic locations.  We continue to keep up to date with the escalating news and concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, to provide another option for those who no longer wish to see us at one of clinics while they shelter in place and to ensure you can communicate effectively with your physical therapist while continuing your therapy at home, Northern Rehab is implementing Telehealth, or “e-visit” PT appointments as an option. This technology allows you to have a "virtual" PT appointment by video conference with your Physical Therapist in the comfort and safety of your home.
