Direct Access

About Us > Direct Access
Get the relief and recovery you need now, without a physician's prescription!

To go to physical therapy, most states, including Pennsylvania, no longer require a prescription from your physician. This law, known as DIRECT ACCESS (DA) allows you to see a DA certified physical therapist immediately, so that you can get the outpatient physical therapy care you need right away. Most health insurances cover physical therapy obtained by using Direct Access, but if they do not, our staff will help you get what you need from your doctor to be covered under your insurance.

The sooner an injury is treated, the quicker the recovery. At Physical Therapy at St. Luke's, each facility has at least one DA certified therapist. Our Direct Access certified therapists are well qualified to evaluate your condition, assess your physical therapy needs,and begin your treatment.
