Dr. Dustin Rauch


As one of the only two CFMT’s in Waco and the surrounding area, Dr. Dustin Rauch brings to Central Texas exciting new opportunities for healing and care. Functional Manual Therapy is an innovative approach to patient care and wellness that incorporates mobilization, neuromuscular facilitation, and motor control training to alleviate pain and restore efficient movement. Dr. Rauch has undergone extensive training to identify specific mobility limitations within the joints, soft tissues, viscera and neurovascular tissues. These kinds of limitations can impair a person’s function and ability to automatically and efficiently control their movements, which often leads to pain and decreased ability to perform normal daily activities.

“I was initially drawn to physical therapy after watching my mom go through rehab of various types during the progression of her ALS. I want people to experience the difference Functional Manual Therapy can make in their lives. I want people to know that they don’t have to settle with being told there is nothing more that can help them. I fully believe every person has the existing uptapped potential to improve their function and decrease their pain. Functional Manual Therapy gets effective results and improves and restores lives.” – Dr. Dustin Rauch

Prior to joining WELL+DONE, Dr. Rauch led the outpatient rehab team at the Woman’s Hospital of Texas as the rehab manager. After receiving his Doctor of Physical Therapy at Hardin Simmons in 2013, he worked in private practice and hospital outpatient therapy clinics that specialized in manual therapy. For the last several years he has worked in a pelvic health clinic helping resolve the orthopedic components of complex pelvic pain patients, lymphedema and pre/postnatal care.

When Dr. Rauch isn’t treating patients, he enjoys time with his wife and two daughters, being outdoors, woodworking, hiking, camping, and attending church. In the past he has been actively involved in training and handling search and rescue dogs for FEMA’s Urban Search and Rescue team in New Mexico.
