You may be referred to physical
therapy by your physician who has done an evaluation and feels you
would benefit from physical therapy. This situation is the most common
way people come to see a physical therapist.
In the state of Alaska, a person can
see a physical therapist without a physician referral. Some insurance
companies require a physician referral. However, the majority of
people can be seen without one. You can call us to find out if a
referral would be necessary or you can check with your insurance
If your physical therapist feels that
the problem you are experiencing is not related to conditions physical
therapy can treat, we will refer you to your physician.
