To receive physical therapy treatment, most states, including Pennsylvania, no longer require a prescription from your physician. This new law, known as DIRECT ACCESS (DA) or SELF-REFERRAL, allows you to see a DA Licensed Physical Therapist immediately, so that you can receive the outpatient physical therapy care you need. Most health insurances cover physical therapy treatment received by using Direct Access. The sooner your condition is treated, the quicker the recovery. At AIR Physical Therapy, our Direct Access Licensed Therapists are qualified to evaluate your condition, assess your physical therapy needs, and begin treatment.
