How Long Can I Attend Physical Therapy

Each insurance company has different rules governing how many physical

therapy visits are covered. The physician will often prescribe a certain number

of visits when providing a referral to physical therapy. However, a client is

discharged from physical therapy once they have met their goals and are

independent in their home exercise program. The physical therapist and

physician communicate every couple of weeks regarding a client’s status and

progress. The length of time and number of visits that a client can expect largely

depends on their condition, but may range from four to 12 visits for a period of

two to six weeks or longer.
