Direct Access

Direct Access

On June 6, 2016 our physical therapists were elated to know that Direct Access had been passed in the State of Louisiana. Having Direct Access means that the patient may come directly to the physical therapist without the need of a referral from their physician. In the past if you felt you needed the services of a physical therapist, you would have to make an appointment with your physician and get a referral before having an appointment with a physical therapist. Our physical therapists evaluate you and begin your treatment so that you may get back to your life. Direct Access is beneficial for our patients and our physical therapists because the sooner your plan begins, the more quickly you can get back to the activities you have missed.

Physical Therapists at Tri-State Physical Therapy understand that you have had to miss out on many activities that others take for granted. That is why our staff schedules you as quickly as possible. Our therapists see you at every visit to assess your progress. Your treatment plan is created for you and the difficulties you are having so seeing your Physical Therapist immediately allows you to start on treatment right away to get back to normal function. Many disorders can be successfully evaluated and treated without additional testing, but our physical therapists are trained to know if more invasive medical intervention is needed. In those cases, referral to your physician is made immediately.

If you feel you need the skill of a physical therapist, call Tri-State for an appointment. We are here to take care of you. Our years of experience prove it. Tri-State Physical Therapy prides itself on the longevity of our employees. This experience is beneficial for our patients and our company.
