Direct Access

When seeking physical therapy services, it’s important to know that you have the right to choose your physical therapist. In Connecticut you can make an appointment with a physical therapist directly, without a physician’s referral if covered by your insurance carrier. Although a physician or other health care professional may suggest a certain facility or physical therapist based on experience or geographical location, the decision as to where you seek treatment is yours. Some physicians employ physical therapists or own physical therapy clinics, which means they have a financial incentive to refer patients to their employees or clinics. This conflict of interest can lead to excessive visits and services.

Advanced Physical Therapy understands that the road to recovery is personal, so you will always receive a treatment plan tailored toward your individual goals and needs. You are the most important member of your own health care team and you have the freedom to choose your physical therapist. Always insist that your physical therapy be provided by a licensed physical therapist. The decision as to where you seek treatment is yours. Choose the name you trust with Advanced Physical Therapy.
