QUESTION: Can I see a physical therapist without a physician’s prescription?

Published on

Yes! NJ state law now allows direct access to physical therapy services without needing a prescription.*

Are you living with pain on a daily basis or does it come and go? Do you have pain following surgery, sports or daily activities? Being treated by an expert physical therapist can often reduce your pain without medication or surgery, and enable you to experience a more
active and pain-free lifestyle.
