Did you know Arizona is a Direct Access state for Physical Therapy? That means you can see a physical therapist without a script!
You can now save time AND money!
How Does That Save Me Time?
It has been increasingly common having to wait 4+ days to see a family physician. The longer it takes to get in the physician’s office, the longer the delay in treatment, and the more challenging the treatment becomes.
Once you have made it to your physician, it is also common to be prescribed rest, ice/heat, anti-inflammatories, or pain medications. You are then told to return in a week or two if the problem persists. If those passive modalities don’t work, you are set back a week or two.
How Does That Save Me Money?
The longer it takes the pain to get resolved, the more money it costs to keep the pain at a manageable level. It is not rare to be sent for expensive x-rays or MRI’s for something usual like low back pain. These images have been shown to be unreliable when attempting to diagnose where the source of back pain is coming from.
This places physical therapists at the front-line of musculoskeletal pain or injuries.
