Do I need a referral for Physical Therapy?

If so, how do I get one?

The state of Utah, is known as a ‘direct access state’ meaning patients can legally see physical therapists directly, without a referral from their doctor. However, some insurance companies require referral in order for therapy to be covered. Physical Therapy is often a good first step. If symptoms can be resolved with physical therapy, then the other procedures and potential side effects can be avoided. It is always your right to pursue Physical Therapy, or any other treatment, prior to other more invasive procedures. If the Physical Therapist evaluates you and finds nothing that they think physical therapy can address, they will be honest and tell you that, encourage you to go back to see your primary provider and will likely call the referring provider or send a written report about the evaluation findings.

What Will My First Appointment Include?​

Your first visit will last approximately one hour and will include a comprehensive evaluation and applicable treatment administered by a licensed Physical Therapist. Your Physical Therapist will review your medical history, any recent events that may have contributed to your current condition and perform diagnostic testing. Your evaluation will include an assessment of your current functional deficits, pain level and posture, as well as a thorough evaluation of your flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.

Following your evaluation, your Physical Therapist will thoroughly explain your personalized treatment plan and expectations for recovery, as well as provide a home exercise regimen to be performed at home. Communication between the patient and Physical Therapist is of utmost importance at Wasatch Therapy, and you are an active participant in your recovery.
