A physical therapist with a master's degree—or with a bachelor's degree and five years of clinical experience—may initiate treatment for a new or recurring injury without a prescription.

A PT may treat a patient for a chronic or recurring injury or condition without a prescription as long as the patient was previously diagnosed and prescribed physical therapy treatment in Wyoming within the previous year.

Except in emergency situations, a PT cannot initiate direct access physical therapy in Wyoming for children under the age of 12 without a prescription. The exception to this is if the child is to receive PT treatment in accordance with an education program or family services plan.

A PT must refer the patient to a physician when:

The physical therapist believes there are symptoms or conditions present that require services exceeding his or her scope of practice;

Direct access physical therapy treatment in Wyoming is contraindicated; or
