Direct Access Overview
Physical therapy is not just treating the patient, but also establishing a valuable relationship with the patient, family and other healthcare providers involved in reaching meaningful goals. Although every clinic setting is unique in structure, we all share a common core value of providing patients with the best care in helping them reach their goals.
Did you know patients can walk into a physical therapy clinic without needing a medical doctor’s prescription? For example, let’s say you have back pain, you can schedule an appointment and be evaluated and discuss your plan without seeing your doctor. We evaluate your problems, coordinate with your doctor and start care right away. If we need to refer you out, or get more information, we get that started along with other members of your medical team.
Physical therapists are well prepared to provide the public with preventative care; from postural correction/ergonomics to identifying muscular weakness & flexibility, and we can be the front-end of this process; leading to less cost for the patient.
There are so many ways that physical therapy can help the public, let us be the avenue of change to make El Paso a happy, healthy, and active city.
