Physical Therapy FAQs

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy, or PT, is a highly interactive non-operative form of hands-on treatment designed to speed recovery from an injury, correct movement dysfunction, restore function and prevent recurrence.

Do I need a referral to come in for Physical Therapy?

In the state of Wisconsin you can directly access your physical therapist for an appointment. In other words, while referrals are always welcome and appreciated, they are usually not required. Any concerns identified by your therapist that may fall outside the scope of PT practice would prompt a consultation with your physician.
