Direct Access

Get the relief and recovery you
need NOW – without a physician prescription.

To go to physical therapy, most states, including New Jersey and Pennsylvania, no longer require a prescription from your physician.
This new law, known as DIRECT ACCESS (DA), allows you to see a DA certified physical therapist immediately, so that you can get the out-patient physical therapy care you need now. Most health insurances cover physical therapy obtained by using Direct Access.

Save time and money: get better, faster.

The sooner an injury is treated, the quicker the recovery. At E & A Therapy, each clinic has at least one DA certified therapist. Our Direct Access certified therapists are well qualified to evaluate your condition, assess your physical therapy needs and begin the much needed treatment.
