Direct Access to Physical Therapy

When you experience an injury one of the barriers to affordable medical care is the multiple doctors you are required to visit before being referred to the health care professional who can actually provide you with the treatment you need. One of the best kept secrets that can help you avoid this revolving door of service in the event of an injury is Direct Access Physical Therapy.

Holy Family Memorial Rehab Plus is the first and most experienced provider in Manitowoc County to provide direct access by licensed physical therapists who can evaluate and treat patients without requiring them to see a physician first. Studies indicate that visiting a physical therapist directly for outpatient care results in 27% fewer visits needed and lower overall costs to the patient. By visiting therapy first you will be evaluated for your injury sooner, save money, and put yourself on the direct road to recovery.   

Direct Access Physical Therapy began at HFM Rehab Plus in 2013 with a primary goal of providing patients with the highest quality of care that will maximize recovery. Our experienced therapists want to help you get back to your normal daily life as quickly as possible. Direct access is available to individuals with private insurance who are experiencing sport or recreational injuries, cumulative trauma, low back pain, neck pain, dizziness, muscle and joint sprains, gait and balance disorders, problems related to arthritis, foot pain and much more.

Physical therapists graduate from college with graduate degrees and receive extensive education and training in the examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis and proper treatment for your pain.The physical therapists at HFM Rehab Plus pride themselves on providing compassionate care and a healing touch to all who come through our doors.
