When to Skip the Primary Care Physician and Go Straight to a Physical Therapist

When to Skip the Primary Care Physician and Go Straight to a Physical Therapist Did you know that starting with physical therapy first can save you thousands of dollars? Physical therapy helps by addressing harmful movement issues early that, left untreated, often lead to bigger more expensive medical interventions in the future. Instead of reflexively spending hundreds of dollars on unnecessary medical doctor visits, or worse, ignoring your pain because of expensive healthcare costs, start with a visit to a doctor of physical therapy first, for all your back, joint, or muscle issues. If you're experieincing some of these symptoms, you can request a consultation to see if it makes sense to skip a primary cary physician and go right to a specliast:

  • Back and neck pain

  • Work injuries

  • Shoulder pain (tendonitis/bursitis, impingement, instability)

  • Sports-related injuries

  • Rotator cuff injuries

  • Tendonitis

  • Knee pain (tendonitis)
