DIRECT CONSUMER ACCESS TO PHYSICAL THERAPY STARTS JAN 1ST 2015!

Direct Consumer Access for Physical Therapy Services Effective January 1, 2015

Peak Performance Physical Therapy is happy to announce effective Jan. 1, 2015 Michigan will have Direct Consumer Access for Physical Therapy services. Michigan was the last state in the United States to receive Direct Consumer Access for Physical Therapy. Governor Snyder signed SB 690 (PA260-14) into law on June 26th, 2014. What does this mean to the consumer? A consumer that needs Physical Therapy services can walk into a Physical Therapy facility and receive care without having to get a referral or prescription from their physician, similar to massage or chiropractic care. This will allow consumers who may have an acute low back injury, ankle sprain, muscle pull, shoulder injury, or any other musculoskeletal injury to seek their trusted physical therapist immediately for care. Research shows that the more quickly a physical therapist treats an injury the sooner the patient gets back to their daily function and activities.

The physical therapists at Peak Performance work very closely with our trusted Physician colleagues. If we evaluate a patient that may need further consultation from a physician we will be happy to direct the care, in an efficient manner, to the best practitioner for the specific needs.

At Peak Performance Physical Therapy our therapists are post doctorial trained in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT), United States Track and Field (USTAF) Level 2, Instrument Assisted Manual Therapy (Graston), Functional Massage, and Specific Provocation Alleviation techniques.

Our skilled practitioners will take you through an hour long complete physical evaluation in which you will be educated on your condition and feel empowered to take charge of your health. We look forward to working with you soon! Call to set up an appointment today!
