No prescription needed

Direct access to the power of physical therapy

If you have pain or an injury that isn’t improving, our team at SSM Health Physical Therapy can get you on the road to recovery. In our Illinois centers, patients may be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical therapist without a prescription.* It’s called direct access and it empowers you to be your own health care advocate. This means you can start treatment more quickly to restore strength, regain skills, reduce pain and get back to what you love.

If we feel an injury or issue needs further attention, we will refer you to your doctor or appropriate specialist. We will also communicate with your doctor as directed.

We know saving time and money is important to you. A physical therapy plan of care can help you get you back to life and the things you love while avoiding surgery and the long-term use of prescription medications.

The right choice for care is SSM Health Physical Therapy. We offer convenience, compassion and results. Your Therapy... Our Passion.

*A physician’s prescription may be required for workers’ compensation and motor vehicle injury cases, or if your insurance requires it.
