Referrals for Physical Therapy

Physical therapists thoroughly assess and treat injuries including sprains, strains, nagging pains like tendonitis, back pain, or difficulty with certain activities/workouts because of stiffness or mobility issues. Historically, clients come to therapy after obtaining a physician referral, however, a referral is not required to see a physical therapist. Ohio offers “direct access”, which allows an individual to seek treatment from a physical therapist as a primary care provider.


Physical therapists are highly trained to identify musculoskeletal impairments that are appropriate for physical therapy treatment. Plus, physical therapists identify those ailments that would require referral to a physician for appropriate diagnosis and treatment beyond the scope of physical therapy. Utilizing a physical therapist as a primary health care provider can prevent potential delay in treatment and can reduce costs for healthcare in potentially unnecessary testing.
