No Prescription Needed
Direct access to physical, occupational and speech therapy
If you have pain or an injury that isn’t improving, our team at Dignity Health Physical Therapy can get you on the road to recovery. In New Jersey, patients may be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical, occupational or speech therapist without a physician’s prescription.* It’s called direct access and it empowers you to be your own health care advocate. This means you can start treatment more quickly to restore strength, regain skills, reduce pain and get back to what you love.
If we feel an injury or issue needs further attention, we will refer you to your physician or appropriate specialist. We will also communicate with your physician as directed.
We know saving time and money is important to you. Choosing therapy first can help you get back to life and the things you love while avoiding surgery and the long-term use of prescription medications.
The right choice for care is Dignity Health. We offer convenience, compassion and results.
*A physician’s prescription may be required for workers’ compensation and motor vehicle injury cases.
