Maryland is known as a direct access state. This means that you can go into any physical therapy office and they can evaluate, diagnose within our scope of practice, and treat within that same scope. The benefit to you is that you get more control over your care because we can work on your goals, not the insurance company’s even if your goals change during the course of treatment. Each session is devoted to you and what you feel is your most urgent need at that time. Welcome to the driver’s seat!
