What Is Direct Access?
As of June 2016, Louisiana became the 38th state to allow direct access to physical therapy. This means you may seek physical therapy treatment without having to see a physician first. The goal of this law is to help provide easier access to care, less-costly care, and improved outcomes. You have a choice in where you receive your physical therapy and when you want to pursue care.
Why Go Direct to Moreau Physical Therapy?
Patient access to physical therapy is valuable to individuals for several reasons. Evidence has shown that providing patients with direct access to the physical therapist is cost-effective. Patients who begin physical therapy sooner after their initial injury, require fewer visits. If you choose PT first, you’ll feel better faster, and could potentially save money in the process! Who doesn’t love to save money?
