by the Virginia Board of Medicine
You Have Direct Access to
In Virginia, patients can arrange an appointment directly with a Direct Access Certified Physical Therapist without a prescription. At Progress Physical Therapy, LLC, all of our Physical Therapists are Direct Access Certified. This law improves the public's access to the traditional medical system and saves healthcare dollars. Earlier intervention speeds recovery.
We Can Refer
Physical Therapists are highly skilled at evaluating musculoskeletal problems. An integral part of our evaluation process is recognizing signs and symptoms that may be indicative of conditions that are beyond our expertise or scope of practice. If this occurs, we will immediately contact your Physician to discuss our concerns and arrange for referral to the appropriate specialist. Ongoing communication with your Physician is a routine part of our practice. If at any time during a course of treatment we determine that you are not making progress as would be expected, we will consult with your Physician.
We Receive Referrals
Most of our patients are referred to us by Physicians. If you are currently under the care of a Physician for the problem for which you would like to receive Physical Therapy, you are required to have a prescription to receive Physical Therapy services. Medicare beneficiaries, please note that Medicare and Medicare replacement plans continue to require a Physician prescription.
Now that's Progress!
