Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physician’s referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.


“Gosh!!! What can I not say about the awesome people that work there!!! I wouldn’t have my PT anywhere else. They are some of the kindest people I have met in a long time. Thank you some much Bryan/Walt for getting me through my PT. You guys rock!!!”


“Awesome place, awesome PT’s!”


“I had right shoulder rotator cuff surgery. I started therapy at Barren Ridge Physical Therapy 2 weeks later. I am now entering week 6 of therapy. I am moving my arm and shoulder without a lot of discomfort. It is a small business in Stuarts Draft and I highly recommend their services. The staff is very friendly and very professional. Anyone in this area that needs physical therapy I would highly recommend going here. I still have about 6 weeks to go, but I have confidence that my shoulder will be at or close to normal.”


“For the second time, you have come to my rescue and worked to get me back to where I can function again. I thank you so much! I have heard from many sources that you are the best — and to that I can honestly say, “AMEN!”



“I have had an excellent experience at Barren Ridge Physical Therapy! This program is far superior to any that I know of. The entire staff here is wonderful! Thank you so much!”
