Important Facts About Physical Therapy

• You’ll need a referral from your primary care physician or specialist to obtain physical therapy.

• Your “wait time” for your first visit depends on your condition and your choice of therapy locations. Post operative patients should be seen within 24 to 48 hours. Other patients should be seen within one to two weeks.

• You may visit a physical therapist once or twice a week depending on the severity of your problem.

• Your average physical therapy session lasts 45 minutes to an hour.

• You’ll pay a co-pay for each visit based on your insurance coverage.
