Specialized Physical Therapy and Paul Vidal are pleased to announce that the Cherry Hill physical therapy team offers Direct Access services in physical therapy. According to New Jersey State law, Direct Access means that patients can go directly to a physical therapist for evaluation and treatment of pain, as well as other movement-related issues, without the need of a physician’s prescription or referral. The concept of Direct Access is relatively new in New Jersey but has several benefits for patients.
The major benefits of utilizing Direct Access first include saving money, systems review to focus on mechanical solutions, saving time, and maintaining patient independence of choice. When looking at healthcare costs, avoiding a visit to the physician’s office for pain-relieving drugs and a referral to the physical therapists is generally less expensive. Trying a physical therapy trial as the initial treatment step saves time and the need for co-pays two professionals.
Typically, physicians perform a systems review that identifies red flag situations that need more immediate attention. They often do not have the time or training to perform the treatments that affect foundational movement impairments. Doctors of Physical Therapy are qualified to do the same systems reviews and are also trained to determine and address problems that have mechanical solutions.

In the aftermath of an injury-causing pain or limitations on mobility, rest is typically helpful, but a medical doctor may prescribe more rest and more pain medications. Rest doesn’t usually address the factors which cause limited mobility or pain. Physical therapy usually has better results when it is implemented soon after the injury happens. The goal is to reach a full recovery and relief from pain.
Chronic pain is a major problem, especially if the patient depends on drugs and health care providers to be able to function. Physical therapy is a patient-empowering, conservative, and proactive way of addressing the underlying cause of mobility-related problems.
