You can choose your PT

You have the freedom to choose where you go for physical therapy. When discussing PT with your physician, you can request any PT clinic you choose. Remember, with Direct Access, you can go directly to any Physical Therapist you wish prior to receiving your physician’s prescription or referral.

What is Manual Therapy

The Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) philosophy is founded on the understanding that all tissues of the body are intricately interconnected. The FMT approach helps patients achieve efficiency by improving the dynamic interaction between the mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control systems.

What sets us apart?

We believe that every person has the existing potential for improvement. We strive to unlock that potential by providing specialized care for individuals suffering from acute and chronic pain, neurological disorders, and complex sports related injuries.

Hands-On, Cutting Edge Techniques

Using manual (hands on) therapy, we are trained to identify specific underlying dysfunctions leading to the root cause of your symptoms. Our therapists hold advanced certifications in multiple specialized services and techniques including Functional Manual Therapy, Dry needling and Kinesio Taping.

Dedicated Staff & Team Approach

Our staff is passionate about helping patients feel their best. We function as a team and will often consult with one another on complex patients to ensure the highest level of care. Because of the diverse specialties, our patients are often scheduled with more than one therapist to receive a well-rounded approach to their treatment.

Welcoming Environment

We understand that starting physical therapy can be a bit intimidating. This is why we keep our clinic open, friendly, and relaxed. Physical therapy is not always easy but we tailor our treatments to meet the individual needs of any personality and will guide you every step of the way.

Direct Access

No prescription is needed! Direct Access laws have been signed by legislative officials in 48 states, allowing you to come to see us without a prescription or a referral from a physician. In Texas, we can begin treatment for up to 10 business days before a referral would be needed to continue.

Yes, we are accepting NEW Patients!
