We suggest wearing clothing items you are comfortable in completing exercises and stretches. Typically, our patients wear active-wear like shorts, t-shirts, leggings or sweat pants.
- Highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. Physical Therapists can teach patients how to prevent and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. All Physical Therapists are required to receive a degree from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure exam that allows them to practice. Here at Arlington Physical Therapy our therapists have more than 50 years of experience in total.
Physical Therapists Assistants obtain their education through a 2-year accredited associate degree program. Their license allows them to do all of the same treatments done by a Physical Therapist except for an initial evaluation, progress report and discharges. Currently, we have two excellent Physical Therapist Assistants at APT, Josh Anderson and T.J Kaminski.
There are two ways to receive Physical Therapy. The first option is simply asking your doctor for a referral. Not sure if you can get a referral from your doctor?
- You can visit your primary physician or any other physician and request a referral to Arlington Physical Therapy! It’s that easy!
- Direct Access is a way for patients to come to physical therapy even when they don't have a referral. In September 2019, the State of Texas passed a law that allows two weeks of physical therapy without a referral! Once the two week period is over, you will need to get a referral from your doctor.
If you wish to avoid going through insurance or do not have insurance, we offer a self-pay program to cover Physical Therapy Treatments (you will still need a referral).
- Call us at 817.466.7276 for more details about self-pay programs.
