hELP US CELEBRATE THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY!! direct access has made a huge impact on how patients can access physical therapy.  Here's a patient testimonial--
"I was happy to have heard the news that direct access passed, because I don't have health insurance I try to keep doctor's visits to a minimum. When, my back wasn't getting better with acupuncture, my acupuncturist recommended FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers - Naperville.  I was grateful that I didn't need to see an MD first and now 10 visits later I am feeling so much better. "
