You Don't Need a Referral—Colorado is a Direct Access State
Posted on January 26 2016
Great news! Colorado is a Direct Access State! Are you health conscious and eager to live the most active life that your body will allow? If so, here are some important things to know about physical therapy:
Don’t Wait For a Prescription or Referral
Did you know that physical therapy is an evidence-based treatment option for better health? PT is used by patients worldwide to improve strength, mobility, flexibility, balance and coordination. While patients are often referred to our clinics, referrals are not required for treatment. Just like folks pay cash for massage, chiropractic or acupuncture, many of our patients are on a cash-basis for their physical therapy sessions. PT is popular because it has been proven to help improve life’s quality.
Physical Therapy Is Not Simply “Physical”
Patients seek PT for a variety of reasons. A physical therapist can uncover the root of your pain or limitations. Treatment options may include cardiopulmonary as well as neurological techniques. No matter the condition, if you have limited mobility, a physical therapist can uncover options that will help you regain movement, strength and improve function.
Improve Quality of Day-to-day Life
Whether you are looking to improve your golf swing, tone your tummy, strengthen your core, or simply regain daily tasks like loading a dishwasher or bending to tie your shoe, physical therapy can help improve the quality and function of your day-to-day life. While some PT patients seek therapy after a doctor has made the recommendation, many folks are proactively scheduling PT appointments to improve their core strength, body condition and stamina.
At Fit Physical Therapy, our goal is to help all our patients live the best lives possible. Find out how we can help improve your health. Schedule an appointment today: 303-409-2133
