Did you know that in Virginia you can see a physical therapist without a referral, if they have a Direct Access Certification?
Direct access helps to remove unnecessary barriers to healthcare and gives you a choice in accessing physical therapy services quicker to assist in earlier intervention for speedier recovery.
At Total Motion Physical Therapy, our therapists are Direct Access Certified by the Virginia Board of Medicine.
We also believe that regular communication with your primary care physician is important as well. As neuromusculoskeletal specialists, physical therapists are trained to identify signs and symptoms of conditions that are beyond our scope of practice and if this occurs we will communicate with you and your physician to ensure that you are referred to the appropriate specialist.
In fact, as part of our routine practice, we provide evaluations and progress reports to your physician in order to be informed of your progress while you are a participant in a Total Motion Physical Therapy treatment program.
