Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.

We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physicians referral for therapy to be covered.We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.

As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for a maximum recovery.

– Referral slip from your medical doctor
– Your medical insurance card
– Your ID
– If you are getting therapy as a result of a worker’s compensation claim or an automobile accident, you will also need to bring your claim information, including claim number.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first visit to fill out any necessary paperwork.

We recommend comfortable clothing such as sweatpants or shorts, a T-shirt or tank-top and sneakers.

Each visit will last 60 – 90 minutes on average. Times vary due to the treatment and exercises being performed.

The regularity of your visits will be determined after your initial evaluation, but most patients have 3 visits each week scheduled.


“This place is awesome! After I had surgery for a torn ACL, I immediately started going here. Everyone at CSSR is kind, knowledgeable and easy to share concerns with. They work with everyone to insure that needs are met and pain is alleviated. I have been thoroughly impressed with the work the staff does and I recommend anyone in need of physical therapy to come here.”



“A very professional team of Physical Therapists. From the receptionist to all the therapists that work with me. They are concerned about my progress and I have a personal exercise program tailored to my physical improvement. My mobility has significantly improved under their guidance. I couldn’t be more pleased with my progress. My thanks to Heritage Trace Physical Therapy.”

Ginger, Keller West - Heritage Trace PT

“My daughter swims on a team and hurt her shoulder from swimming with wrong technique. She had physical therapy for 6 weeks and is stronger in her shoulder with all pain gone. The therapists there were skilled, positive, and very encouraging to her during this time.”

Linda, North Richland Hills/Keller

“Amazing staff, getting better with every visit!”

Sharon, Colleyville/Euless

“This is the place to go for physical therapy. The therapists and staff could not be more friendly. I felt like I was leaving friends when I had my final visit. It seems that you often get a good doctor and a not-so-great front desk or it is the other way around. There are no trade-offs here – friendly, competent, professional and fun.”

Heath, Corinth

“My doctor made me select a PT location that had a zero gravity treadmill. So, I ended up selecting Southlake Physical Therapy and I am so glad that I did. This is a great Physical therapy office. The therapists and staff are all very welcoming and help in every way. The office staff helped me make my month of appointments at one time, and worked with my Worker’s Comp. insurance company which wasn’t easy. My therapist is amazing. She makes my time at therapy go by quickly. I would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a top rated therapy location.”

Libby, Southlake

“It’s always good to come here it’s a friendly place. I actually look forward to going here to work out my knee thanks guys.”

Jonathan, Frisco/ Little Elm

Amazing experience at PT today with Tony from Physical Therapy of Flower Mound. My hope is slowly returning Thank you so much for the recommendation!
