PREFERRED Therapy Providers has spent more than three decades creating a network of top-tier therapists who special in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech language pathology.
We’ve ensured they are credentialed, licensed and qualified to provide the best care to their patients.
Plus, since our core business is connecting those therapists to insurances that help pay for your care, our search tool can help you find a therapist that accepts your insurance nearby.
Physical therapy is a method of treatment for certain physical impairments, disabilities and injuries. A qualified therapist will do a thorough evaluation and create a plan of treatment for your specific diagnosis.
Physical therapists (PTs) are highly-educated, licensed professionals who may help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility, often without expensive surgery or prescription medicines. In addition, PTs can help develop fitness and wellness programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
When choosing a physical therapist, ensure he or she is licensed, is experienced in the type of care you are looking for and that you enjoy working with. To learn more, visit the American Physical Therapy Association site for consumers: ChoosePt.com.
Occupational therapy helps patients develop, recover, improve and maintain the skills needed for daily living and working.
While physical therapy (PT) focuses on improving the patient’s ability to move their body, occupational therapy (OT) focuses on improving the patient’s ability to perform the activities of daily living.
An occupational therapist may help clients learn new ways of doing things, regain skills, use materials or equipment that makes life easier or adapt their environment to work better for them.

Speech language pathologists (SLPs) treat communication and swallowing problems. This may include having trouble with speech sounds, struggling to understand or be understood while using language, observing social communication “rules”, concerns with how a voice sounds, speech flow / stuttering and feeding and swallowing issues.
SLPs work with people of all ages, from babies to adults as well as with acute onset and chronic conditions.
