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.
