I hear this all too often! Here are some tips on why you should NOT cancel when you are hurting.
- First, Physical Therapists are the movement EXPERTS
- Second, we know how to help YOU get out of pain

Oregon is a Direct Access State, which means you can skip the Physician and come get your musculoskeletal issues resolved first. A Physical Therapist is trained to identify the need for a Physician referral if your injury is more serious than just a musculoskeletal injury.
