Important tips:

  • If you download, complete, and bring in the Registration Forms, arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to check in. If you do not, you need to arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
  • Bring all necessary insurance verification, physicians prescription, list of medications, radiographs (MRI's, X-rays), etc.
  • Bring or wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and, if your injury involves your lower body, a pair of rubber soled sneakers.

What do I need to wear for my initial appointment?
Please wear comfortable clothing that allows us to expose the body part we are examining. It is best if you bring shorts if we are looking at your back or any joint below the back.

Should I bring any X-rays and MRI reports with me?
Yes, please do. Although we can request these from your doctor or lab facility, it is better if you provide them for us during your first visit so that we can perform a more complete and accurate evaluation.
You will be asked to fill out some basic paperwork, so don't forget to bring your prescription for Physical Therapy.

What types of treatments do you perform? The first step to successful rehabilitation and recovery is a complete evaluation. The Physical Therapist’s evaluation will include an examination of your muscles, test of your joints, and assessment of your injury or condition. At this time, education about your condition and an initial plan of care will be given. Next comes hands on manual therapy. A Physical Therapist’s hands can mobilize tissue and joints to allow for a speedier, more complete recovery. You can also expect your therapist to prescribe a personalized exercise regime to be done in the clinic and at home. These exercises will help to restore your strength and function. The key to your complete and sustainable recovery is a team approach: the therapist, the assistant and you. 

Do I always see the same therapist?
At ProActive Physical Therapy Centers we work as a team. You will be evaluated and treated by your Physical Therapist. During your treatment sessions you will also see a licensed Physical Therapist assistant.  Your total treatment time is about 60 minutes, sometimes longer or shorter based on your individual needs. Remember, we work as a team: therapist, assistant, and you—the patient..

How long does each session last?
Generally, your initial visit will last over 1 hour since the therapist will need to evaluate your condition, provide treatment, and give home instructions. Following visits may last from 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on your injury and level of activity.

How often will I come?
Most prescriptions and treatment schedules are for 2-3 visits per week, but this will vary based on your condition and physical ability.

Physical Therapy sessions typically last an hour. Treatment plans usually are from 6-12 weeks with periodic re-evaluations and regular follow-up visits with your doctor.

Do I need a prescription from my doctor to see you?

A prescription or referral is not required to see a Physical Therapist in the state of Texas for your initial visit. Appointments can be made anytime. However, there are three things to consider based on your situation. First, you can call for a 15-minute free screening. Your therapist will give an examination and tell you if Physical Therapy is right for you. At that same time our office staff will let you know if your insurance will cover the treatments. Second, if your health insurance policy requires a referral from your primary care physician for outside services, like Physical Therapy, request that referral prior to treatment to avoid personal responsibility for incurred charges. Third, if you are receiving physician’s care for the same condition, you need to request the referral before seeing us.

What do I need to bring to my first appointment?

Please bring your insurance card, driver’s license, the medical doctor’s referral or prescription, your calendar, and payment for your co-pay or deductible. Please download, complete and bring the intake forms found on this site. They can be time consuming, but they are necessary. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows us to expose the body part we are examining. It is best if you bring shorts if we are examining your back or lower extremities. Finally, we ask that you come fifteen minutes early to so the front desk and your therapist can review your paperwork.

Will I have to do anything at home?

Absolutely!! One of our primary responsibilities is to teach you what you need to do at home to manage your condition. And not just at home! Think of how much time you spend at work. Exercise works! Your prescribed home exercises are designed to keep you moving forward.
