Multispecialty rehabilitation services

Physical therapy is one type of rehabilitation service. Along the way, your care may require other rehabilitation services – pediatric therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology or other specialists – you do not have to navigate your care alone. Your care team will help you schedule appointments, connect with other services, and answer your questions. From your first therapy appointment and throughout your ongoing care, your doctor will stay informed about your progress. 

In some states, you may not need a physician order to start physical therapy.  If you would like to start physical therapy but are not sure if you need a physician order, please contact a rehabilitation - physical therapy location at an Ascension site of care near you to discuss whether a physician order is needed.
