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.

Fully believe that all of our therapists can help you through anything.
I had hip replacement on April 3rd and by early May needed physical therapy to regain my ability to walk without severely limping.
Ryan, with the assistance of Jordan and Emily, put me through my paces and ensured that I was doing the exercises correctly. Toward the end of my sessions, (the PT) Emily and Chelsea occasionally stood in, but the continuity of care was always evident. My doctor was so pleased with my progress at my 12-week check-up that he pronounced me at least a month ahead of schedule in my progress.
I can happily say that I can walk without a limp and do almost everything I could do prior to the onset of the hip arthritis which precipitated the hip replacement surgery! Go Dynamic Physical Therapy! You guys rock! And it was always fun to be there – even when it hurt! – Kathleen
Mrs. Gibbs, You’ve chosen to return to Dynamic as a patient multiple times and I have grown more fond of you each time. Your witty banter is always refreshing, and your trivial knowledge has been impressive. You did so well with your hip. Take good care of that hip and back. Lastly, thank you for the delicious treats! – Ryan
I came to Michelle for pelvic floor physical therapy very late in 2012 after a referral by my Ob-Gyn. I had tried therapy before to correct incontinence, but I had little success. In 2011, I had pelvic reconstruction surgery that weakened the muscles even more, but a relocation to Louisiana precluded any post-op therapy at that time.
Michelle worked with me for several months helping to train the muscles (and me!) and try different methods to see what would be the most effective. As a result of the therapy/training, I have not had any leakage since. In my opinion, that is the greatest benefit of this therapy.
Michelle is sensitive to her client’s physical needs and – just as importantly – to her client’s emotional needs. This is a very embarrassing subject for most women, and Michelle knows just how to deal with the physical problem and the concomitant sensitivities. – Kathy Gibbs
Mrs. Kathy, Thank you so much for sharing your success with the Women’s Health Program. Your courage to share your story will hopefully help others that suffer with the same symptoms to get well too! From an Air Force Brat to an Army Brat, we could relate to each other from the onset which surely made it easy! You hard work, commitment, and dedication were surely your success in the program! Thank you for your kind words in how your felt like I helped you get through it! – Michelle
