More on Direct Access
No Referral Needed
At Anchor Physical Therapy, we believe that rapid access to our services is an essential factor in efficient healthcare delivery. With Direct Access in Rhode Island, you can seek physical therapy services without a prescription* from your physician or healthcare professional for 90 days. Physical therapists have become part of the front-line management for patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain or injury.
As physical therapists, we’re experts in movement and movement dysfunction, evaluating not only the injury/pain but the underlying conditions and contributing factors.
Many needs can be addressed, assessed, and quickly treated without expensive ongoing testing or surgery.
However, should your injury or condition be outside of our scope of practice, we can refer you for further evaluation with one of the many physicians and medical providers we’re connected with.
* does not include Medicare.
