Do I need a Doctor’s Referral?

As a patient in California you are able to be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical therapist without first obtaining a physician’s referral or prescription under legislation called “Direct Access”. Thanks to a new bill which became effective in January 2015, you can now come directly into Sports Conditioning and Rehabilitation at any time for any injury. Many studies show that immediate care for most injuries can reduce your healing time, by directly seeing one of our physical therapists first, your treatment may be expedited and save you money at the same time. While many insurance companies and plans do adhere to this law, others require a prescription prior to your visit. Please contact your insurance company to find out what the rules are of your plan.
