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 their issue to ensure longevity of results. Simply fill out our new patient paperwork, view/read the materials prior to the session, and we'll arrive to your appointment on time.
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
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. 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 approve your plan of care beyond the 15 days if needed.
What types of health insurance do you accept?
Olympus is primarily a direct-pay clinic but we do see patients with various insurance types. We are credentialed with BCBS, Aetna, and TRICARE/TRI-WEST, and are working on expanding our insurance network. Patients may also consider receiving a self-claim receipt in order to be directly reimbursed by their insurance. This allows our clinic the ability to deliver premium-level concierge care and eliminates surprise bills or cut-offs from your insurance during the span of your care with us.
How long will therapy take?
We currently average about 3-4 visits per episode before using wellness services to assist with a full recovery. Each session is at least 1 hour long. The total length of recovery is unique to each person/ case and will vary based on injury type, age of the condition, 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 or back pain, sciatica, 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, posture and movement analysis, mobility/exercise classes, skilled myofascial cupping and scraping, electropoint therapy, sports massage, and advanced manual techniques to restore tissue balance in the body. Many of these services can be bundled into what we call an active recovery package.
