Direct Access in Illinois

In pain? Direct Access means relief on your terms — now available in Illinois

We are thrilled at Pelvic & Orthopedic Physical Therapy Specialists that on August 16, 2018, Governor Bruce Rauner signed the Illinois Direct Access law.

What Does Direct Access Mean to You?

Now, instead of having to make an appointment with your physician to get a referral for physical therapy, you can make the appointment directly with a physical therapist.  In other words, quicker access to help to decrease your pain and improve your quality of life.

Who Direct Access Helps

All Illinois residents are now eligible, which helps patients of all walks of life go to physical therapy faster than ever before.  Examples include:

  • Weekend warriors who overdid yard work
  • Pregnant women experiencing pain with changes in their bodies
  • Postpartum women who just aren’t bouncing back like they want to
  • Aging adults who don’t have the balance and stability like they used to

What Conditions are Typically Treated?

Our highly-trained, specialized physical therapists can help you alleviate:

  • Back and hip pain
  • Neck and arm pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Urinary Incontinence (female and male)
  • Pre- & post-childbearing conditions
  • Shoulder pain, bursitis, tendonitis and tears
  • Foot and ankle pain, including plantar fasciitis, sprains
  • Headaches and migraines

Who Direct Access Helps

All Illinois residents are now eligible, which helps patients of all walks of life go to physical therapy faster than ever before.  For example, this can reduce wait times for postpartum moms who need help before their 6 week checkup, weekend warriors who overdid their yard work, and busy people who want to start PT don’t have time to visit their primary care physician.
