Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Answered

What is your new patient procedure?

Each patient will receive a thorough and accurate evaluation to identify pain-generating structures, weaknesses, and the root cause of the issue to ensure the longevity of results. After your evaluation, we proceed directly into treatment on the first day with tests and measures before and after to make sure you respond well to our care. Simply arrive at your first appointment on time, fill out our new patient paperwork in the office, ask questions, and we'll coach you through the rest. 

Do I need a doctor’s referral?

No Referral Needed! In the state of Texas, a doctor's referral is not needed to receive a PT initial evaluation but may be required for treatment to continue after 15 business days. Some insurance companies may request a referral before therapy to receive coverage but it is generally not required. We recommend all patients consult or call their PCP to inform them that they will be seeking physical therapy with us and we will send them an email/fax with pertinent medical information to obtain the referral if needed.

How long will therapy take?

Results are typically found within the first 3 visits! Once we have established results we discuss a faded visit program to prepare you for a case discharge and shift care to a wellness approach if needed. This reduces how much time and money you spend on therapy. Each session lasts about an hour to an hour and a half.

The total length of recovery is unique to each person and their case. Things to consider include, the type of injury, patient age, how long the injury has been present, health status/ comorbidities, and other factors. Olympus PT provides top-notch case management to save you time and money in the long run.

What conditions do you treat?

We treat any musculoskeletal condition that may contribute to symptoms such as neck pain, back pain, sciatica, knee pain, foot and ankle pain, plantar fasciitis, hand pain, numbness/ tingling, headaches, weakness, instability/ imbalance, tightness/ stiffness, joint pain, sports injuries, and pre/post-surgical care. We also treat a variety of neuromuscular conditions such as stroke, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, and much more.

What other services do you provide?

We offer sports performance assessments with video analysis, posture and movement analysis, pre- race or competition kinesiology taping, mobility/exercise training, skilled myofascial cupping and scraping, electro-point therapy, sports massage, and other advanced manual techniques to restore tissue balance in the body.
