If you have not yet reached your annual deductible, then the money you spend on physical therapy treatment is likely to apply towards your annual deductible.

We are a private-pay or fee-for-service clinic, which means that we work directly for the patient, not for insurance companies. This allows your Doctor of Physical Therapy to heal you while also providing you with the best value for your time and money.

Every patient visit at Better Way Physical Therapy is provided by a Doctor of Physical Therapy. (Many providers of Physical Therapy Treatment do not have a Doctorate degree.) More advanced evaluation techniques are able to perceive root causes of pain that had been previously overlooked. Peter McGrath, PT, DPT is trained based on the latest research to evaluate and heal back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain in the shortest amount of visits by providing the most effective treatments specific to each patient’s individual needs.

Another way that Better Way Physical Therapy offers superior service is that we provide patients with 1 hour sessions, always with a Doctor of Physical Therapy, while the vast majority of clinics are not able to match this offer. Furthermore, at Better Way Physical Therapy we respect you and your time is valuable to us, that is why your Doctor of Physical Therapy will give you their undivided attention (and NOT waste your time watching a health care provider type into a computer).

Each patient at Better Way Physical Therapy is treated as a unique individual case and to provide a general answer would not be consistent with this philosophy. The answer to this question depends on many factors such as duration and severity of symptoms, age, activity level, immune system integrity, cardiovascular health, nutrition, overall wellness, etc.

Physician Referrals

Texas law currently allows Physical Therapy Evaluation without a doctor’s referral, however in order to receive Physical Therapy Treatment, a patient must have a referral- most often from their primary care physician. Call your primary care physician to request a physical therapy referral to be faxed to Better Way Physical Therapy, Fax# 512-686-4826. (Credentials of providers who can refer patients to physical therapy treatment include MD, DO, PA, NP, DDS, DPM, and DC.)

If you have pain and symptoms, we recommend that you receive a Physician Referral before your first visit with Better Way Physical Therapy. This allows your Doctor of Physical Therapy to begin treatment on your first session. It also increases the likelihood that your Physical Therapy Evaluation would be reimbursed by insurance with a self-submitted claim.

Obtaining a referral is typically a very simple process. Call 512-763-9330 if you have any questions.

Physician referrals are not needed for fitness training, injury prevention, and wellness services for clients who do not currently have pain or symptoms.
