No, you do not need a doctor’s order to start therapy. We can start treatment on your initial visit!
Physical Therapist in the State of Texas can now evaluate and treat your injury for 10 consectutive business days as long as they have met certain criteria based on the new rules and regulations regarding direct access.
In order to treat a patient without a script/referral, a physical therapist must possess a doctoral degree in physical therapy or have completed 30 continuing competence hours in differential diagnosis. If a PT with a doctoral degree has completed a fellowship or residency, the number increases to 15 consectutive business days.
Once the 10 or 15 consectutive business days have past, the physical therapist will need a doctor’s order to continue care.

-The Eagar Family
We brought our 14 year old son to RENEW Physical Therapy for some issues he was having with his right (throwing) arm. He is a baseball player in his first fall of high school and he was experiencing discomfort for the first time. Renee did a thorough exam of his arm and determined he had some biceps tendonitis. Over the course of 4-5 therapy sessions, she worked him through relevant and targeted exercises to build strength and regain confidence in his throwing. She also provided a plan of therapy with exercises to do between sessions in addition to going the extra mile by contacting and informing his HS coach about the treatment plan. He is now healed, confident and has a plan to follow to keep building strength and to prevent future injuries. We are very grateful for RENEW PT and all of Renee’s efforts to get our son back on the field. We’d highly recommend her services!
Professional, personal service! Renee is an extremely caring and knowledgeable therapist. Her skills go well beyond her PT license. She is the best!
