Direct Access makes self-referral for physical therapy easy in Massachusetts.

Here are the Direct Access laws in Massachusetts, as described by the American Physical Therapy Association:

Massachusetts is one of 18 states that allow patients total, unrestricted access to physical therapy. That’s one of the greatest benefits of direct access for physical therapy: No type of physician referral is required for a physical therapist in Massachusetts to treat a patient.

With direct access physical therapy in Massachusetts, if the physical therapist feels that the patient’s care goes beyond the physical therapy scope of practice, or if physical therapist is contraindicated, the therapist must refer the patient to an appropriate licensed practitioner.

If the patient was referred to physical therapy in Massachusetts, the physical therapist must communicate with the licensed referring practitioner throughout duration of treatment.

The PT must also disclose to the patient any financial interest if the referring physician derives income from the physical therapy services in Massachusetts.


Direct Access lets you self-refer for physical therapy. No prescription required.
