ANNOUNCING DIRECT ACCESS!
California recently passed a law to allow Direct Access to physical therapy services as of January 1, 2014! This means that anyone can be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without being referred by a doctor or other healthcare practitioner. The new law allows for health care consumers (you!) to be more active participants in healthcare and more freedom in choosing a healthcare provider. It allows for more flexibility and efficiency with your valuable time and money. We will continue to update and communicate with your physician as needed, and will continue to work within billing regulations for each insurance company. We are trained to refer you to your physician or other healthcare provider if you require care outside of our scope of practice.
We are excited about working more directly with our patients to provide excellent physical therapy care. Please ask us about more details and with any questions.
Peninsula Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation Center has been providing quality physical therapy services for over 28 years. Our six skilled therapists, who average over 12 years of experience in orthopedics, offer individualized, thorough care for every patient with a focus on education and self-management through all stages of rehabilitation. We have Spanish and Cantonese speaking staff.
We treat all orthopedic dysfunctions, including sports injuries, repetitive stress, post-operative rehabilitation, work injuries, pregnancy-related dysfunctions, chronic pain problems, arthritis, and many more. The clinic is located within a fitness center, which allows for supervised access to gym equipment during treatment sessions. The facility also includes a heated indoor pool and Pilates equipment. Our therapists will instruct you in a safe, effective, customized gym program when appropriate.
Peninsula Sports Medicine is a clinical education site associated with University of California San Francisco and New York Medical College. We accept many different insurance plans including most PPOs, Chinese Community Health Plan HMO, Medicare, and many workers’ compensation carriers. Please call us to discuss your specific situation. Additionally, we offer affordable self-pay options.
