Direct Access To Physical Therapy
Did You Know?
Patients now have Unrestricted Access to Physical Therapy. This change brings Louisiana in line with the other 43 states and aligns us with national models of care. Research shows Direct Access patients had 86% fewer visits on average than referred patients. Direct Access is safe. HPSO, the largest professional liability carrier for Physical Therapists in the United States has concluded there is ZERO RISK to the public when patients access Physical Therapists without a referral. All licensed Physical Therapists in the nation are educated under the same model of a CAPTE accredited program at a doctorate level and pass National Licensure Exam. Although how to access physical therapy has changed, no longer requiring a physician's referral, the practice of physical therapy is still the same. Click here to learn more.

Fearing physical therapy… and realizing it’s not so bad!
After two scopes on my knee that were not successful and very disappointing, I never thought I would have a total knee surgery.
Taking care of my mother-in-law took a toll on my health; including my knee. One of my injuries were due to waking up during the night to take care of my mother-in-law and falling in the darkness. After she passed, I made the decision to get a total knee. I did fear rehab, but all of you made it very easy and helped me so much to work hard.So I take my hat off to the wonderful work you all do at Dynamic Physical Therapy. Love you all! – Marie Looney
Mrs. Marie, We will miss you! I enjoyed our quality time so much, and I am so glad you got well. Keep your chin up, keep working hard, and you’ll reach all of your goals! – Kristian
