This sounds like an unreasonable request and a dictation of medical care by the adjuster. If that were here there are things an attorney could do about it but each state is different in the way these are handled. I suggest that you see what the Ohio attys think and then may do a consultation with someone to determine if having an attorney would be helpful to you in your claim.
Your employer has a right schedule your care as they see fit and to do everything they can to get you back to work sooner so long as that is consistent with the desires of your medical provider. They are probably trying to eliminate the extra day off by scheduling the PT early in hopes that you will recover sufficiently to report to work the next day.
