Welcome to
Latitude Physiotherapy

Congratulations on taking a big step toward recovery!

  • Before your first session, please complete the appropriate intake form:

  • Please bring clothing appropriate for movement (athletic or loose-fitting attire) that exposes or allows easy access to the area of concern.​ Shorts are best for low back and lower extremity concerns. Tank tops are best for mid-back, neck, and upper extremity concerns.

  • Please plan to be on time or early for your appointment

    • Our clinic in East Austin is located at 1614 East 6th Street, Suite 106, Austin, TX, 78702 inside METSI Care Doctor's Office. There is metered street parking on East 6th Street, a paid garage directly across the street, and free street parking two blocks north or south. The #4 bus stops at 7th & Comal. Click here for directions.

    • For virtual Sessions, you will receive a unique Google Meet link in your email inbox. Be ready to join the meeting at your scheduled appointment time. *A Gmail account is not required.

  • Please note, Texas is a Direct Access state, meaning a referral for physical therapy is NOT required to start PT, however, we are required to get one in order to continue beyond two weeks from your first visit. *This is a requirement of our state board, unrelated to insurance. A referral can come from a physician, chiropractor, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, podiatrist, or dentist. Often you may not need to go in for an office visit, however every provider is different. Referrals can be sent to our fax (855-574-0792) or to our encrypted email inbox (info@latitudept.com).

  • Latitude Physiotherapy does not contract with any insurance companies (click here to learn why). However, the payments you make may be partially reimbursable by your insurance company if your plan includes out-of-network physical therapy benefits. If you want to use out-of network benefits, download the Insurance Benefits Worksheet and call your insurance prior to initiating physical therapy—some insurance companies will deny your claims if you don't follow their instructions carefully. There is a $5 service fee per visit/superbill.

  • Peruse our pain science resources!

    • Along with exercise and hands-on manual therapy, this knowledge will play an equal part in your recovery. Self-study of these materials is expected of every patient.

  • Read about Dry Needling, a game changing technique, and learn what to expect

See  you soon!
Pain Science

Modern pain science

You may hold some beliefs that aren't consistent with modern pain science, and sadly, you may have also been misled by other medical professionals. This information is especially pertinent to you if you have been dealing with pain for more than a couple of weeks. Even if pain is not the primary reason for coming to physical therapy, a better understanding of its role in your life and how pain works will ultimately help you achieve symmetry and balance in your body. Furthermore, studies have shown that outcomes improve significantly when pain science education is part of your treatment program. Many individuals find relief simply after beginning to understand these concepts!
