Physical Therapy FIRST for Low Back Pain!

By Robin Saunders Ryan, PT, MS CEO

 When you need help for back pain, who do you think of first? A recent study* showed that patients who saw a physical therapy FIRST for back pain experienced significantly lower total costs compared with both the no-PT and PT-later groups, including lower out-of-pocket expenses. PT-first patients had significantly lower rates for emergency room visits, imaging, and opioid prescriptions compared with the other groups.

In Minnesota, you can self-refer for physical therapy – you do not always need a physician’s referral, and we are skilled at determining when help from your medical doctor is necessary. Call us to find out if physical therapy is the right FIRST STEP for you!
