Direct Access to Physical Therapy - The Secret Revealed
 

How to Relieve Pain & Restore Function Without Medications, Injections, or Surgery

Authored by Michelle Wolpov PT DPT MBA ATC CSCS

The purpose of "Direct Access to Physical Therapy: The Secret Revealed --- How to Relieve Pain & Restore Function WITHOUT Medications, Injections, or Surgery" is to educate the general public on the benefits of self-referral to physical therapy. It is also to provide valuable information, that until this publication, was primarily shared only among physical therapists.

This comprehensive book is packed with useful information that will be valuable, to many audiences, at describing the basis and development of the profession of physical therapy, and the route to accessing physical therapy. Dr. Wolpov has written a detailed resource that explains what a consumer should consider to receive physical therapy, and the benefits of physical therapy to overall healthcare. Given all the recent changes in physical therapy access, and the expected changes to come in healthcare, the timing of this book is perfect. Dr. Wolpov's book supports the vision of the physical therapy profession to transform society.

"All three of my children were patients of Michelle's when they were younger. Not to mention my husband and my father too! And my daughter Lisa, eventually chose physical therapy as her career. Michelle is the kind of person who hopes to make everyone in this world a patient or a Physical Therapist, or BOTH! Physical Therapy has certainly helped my family live more pain free, productive lives!"

"This book is a breakthrough in consumer/patient education, providing extremely valuable information on the benefits of physical therapy for musculoskeletal injuries and disease. The book is easy to read and understand, and should help answer many previously misunderstood referral requirements for physical therapy."

"After going through much suffering and pain from a rotator cuff tear in my shoulder, now I really understand the importance of receiving physical therapy as the first step. Originally, I didn't know about Direct Access to Physical Therapy, so I suffered with pain for 8 weeks while going to my primary physician, then to a specialist, with subsequent delays. Once I arrived in PT, Michelle and her team were excellent at evaluating the cause of my pain, making a clinical diagnosis, and starting treatment the same day. Michelle's book is very informative and a must read for consumers. I wish I read it sooner!"
