Physical Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
If you feel your everyday function is starting to become affected you shouldn’t waste more time. Schedule a free consult or an examination to determine if you are a good candidate for PT services. A licensed physical therapist will perform an examination to determine if PT services will help you. Remember you do not need a prescription to see a PT (except for Medicare patients).
NO! In the state of Pennsylvania you can save time and money by seeing a physical therapist first with no prescription required. After treatment for 30 days you may be required to get a prescription. If you are a patient insured by Medicare, it is a workers comp case, or a motor vehicle accident, you are required to get a prescription for physical therapy before you receive PT services.
