Direct Access Therapy

Access to physical therapy on your schedule
without the need for a referral or prescription.

What is direct access therapy?

Direct access therapy is just that, an opportunity to seek physical therapy when you need it - without the need for a physician’s referral or prescription. It allows you to be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical therapist without spending the extra time and money to first see a physician.

Direct access therapy is another way Holy Family Memorial is committed to providing you with the right care, in the right setting, for the right outcomes.
