Out of Network Physical Therapy

The traditional insurance model has many limitations that ultimately end up affecting you. We’ve decided that to provide the transparent, high quality, individualized treatment we strive to offer, insurance can’t be in the equation. The good news for you? Our services are created for you. Not for your insurance company.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT

Dialogue

Every initial evaluation starts out with a deep dive into who you are as a person, what you enjoy doing, and a history of your current pain or dysfunction. This is what sets the stage for our exam and treatment of you as an individual.

Testing

Now that we’ve gained valuable insight into who you are and what your concerns are, we will run you through a series of tests and measures. This portion of our exam is very investigative in nature, as we will be trying to see how your current pain or dysfunction is influenced. How does it respond to certain movements, loads, or other activities we put it through? This will give us a solid understanding of the root cause of your concerns.

Treatment

We now have a good understanding of the specific joints, muscles, and tissues that are involved. Tailored manual therapy techniques and exercise will be given at this point, and we’ll likely start seeing improvements in pain and movement quality during this first treatment session.

Plan

Your first visit will end with a recap of what was discovered during the dialogue, testing, and treatment portions of your exam. Finally, we will set you up with a home program consisting of specific exercises, mobility drills, and soft tissue work that you can do on your own in between your future appointments. By the end of your appointment you should have a clear understanding of what’s going on, what we’re going to do to fix it, and how long we foresee it taking to resolve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a physician's referral?
    • You do not need a physician’s referral to work with us. Kansas is considered a direct access state, which means that you don’t have to deal with the headache of waiting multiple weeks to get an appointment with your physician, just to be told that you need physical therapy.
    • As Doctor’s of Physical Therapy, we are trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat your specific musculoskeletal condition. Should we feel that you’d benefit from further consultation with another specialist, we’ll be able to refer you appropriately.
What should I expect during my initial visit?
    • You can expect a thorough examination – history collection and a full assessment that often includes range of motion, strength, neurological screening, and special testing to determine if it is a musculoskeletal condition that we can help with. If it is not, then we will help get you with the right type of provider.
    • We will then go through a trial of treatment based on the findings to get you started on the path of feeling and moving better.
    • We will clearly present our findings, make sure you have a good understanding of your condition, and then provide our recommendation for the best course of action.
Do you take my insurance?
    • We are proud to say that we are out of network with all insurance companies. Why are we proud? The traditional insurance model has many limitations that ultimately end up affecting you. We’ve decided that to provide the transparent, high quality, individualized treatment we strive to offer, insurance can’t be in the equation. The good news for you? Our services are created for you. Not for your insurance company. Also, it’s often a cheaper option to be seen out of network than it is to go through insurance.
Can I submit my claims for out of network reimbursement from my insurance?
    • Absolutely. We will provide you with a superbill that contains all of the necessary information your insurance company needs to process your out of network claim.
Can I use my HSA or FSA?
    • Yes. In most cases, we qualify as a medical service that can be paid for with a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA).

Decrease Pain & Discomfort

We use the power of movement and hands-on techniques (dry needling, soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization/manipulation) to create quick and meaningful improvements in the way you feel.

Fix the Root Issue

This is where the traditional healthcare model stops. Instead of using a “bandaid” approach that keeps you coming back, we help you get to the root cause so that you can get back to taking care of yourself.

Keep it from Coming Back

What’s the best way to keep yourself injury free? Build the strength and capacity of not just your areas of concern, but your entire body. Our goal is to help you become resilient so that you can stay active and healthy for the long run.

As a gym goer and owner I’m working out a lot and going after my fitness goals hard. But that came with nagging neck and shoulder pain that just wouldn’t go away. I met with Dr Dave. He helped me rework my upper body routine to progressively increase the strength on lagging muscles that were causing the pain. Highly recommend these guys. They’re the best. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Dave!

I have a history of chronic low back pain even after a discectomy in my lumbar spine several years ago. I had tried PT in the past without much luck but opted to try again with someone new, and I'm so thankful I found TrueFix. I knew that the chronicity of my pain would take time to reverse, but after a few months my pain has SIGNIFICANTLY improved to a point I wasn't sure was even possible! Thank you!!

Dr. Dave was caring and thorough! I felt comfortable the entire visit. He made sure to check all areas relating to my pain and was able to pin point it and gave me exercises to help heal the area. I can truly say I no longer have an issue with this area! Dr. Dave has continued to check up on me! TrueFix loves their patients and wants the best for them!

I express my deepest gratitude for the exceptional care and treatment I received during shoulder rehabilitation at Dr. Dave's clinic. His expertise, dedication, and support significantly impacted my recovery. His personalized attention, friendly demeanor, and ability to create a positive atmosphere were remarkable. His motivation and belief in my abilities pushed me to surpass my expectations. I have significantly improved my shoulder mobility and strength and am grateful for his exceptional care.

Both therapists are great and adjust their plan to match what works best for you! In a short amount of time Dave helped me exceed any goals I had and I am now back to running/jumping after over 4yrs!

I would highly recommend Dave & Eric at TrueFix! Dr. Dave saw me on very short notice for a knee injury. He did a very thorough assessment and answered all of the questions I had. Dr. Dave then offered several stretches and exercises to help rehab and fix my knee. TruFix exceeded my expectations and I would definitely go back again!

I have been dealing with elbow pain for a number of months. Dr. McNeil (Dave) took time to listen to my concerns and then thoroughly examine me to make a diagnosis. He gave some immediate treatment that made an impact and provided clear directions on actions for me to take to build and improve my strength for future adventures. I would recommend anyone go and see Eric and Dave to help resolve any issues they need help to resolve.

TrueFix Physical Therapy is awesome! Definitely better than other clinics I’ve been to that do not feel personalized and you feel like just a number. David is very knowledgeable, caring, and creates a motivating environment that I am very comfortable in. He had me try new things I hadn’t experienced before with other PTs including dry needling which I really found effective! The space is also inviting and well equipped, I look forward to future visits with David and highly recommend him for your physical therapy needs.

TrueFix Physical Therapy is an amazing resource for anyone looking to regain the ability to live with out pain. Dave and Eric are excellent therapists and work in a way that actually solves your challenges. To get you back to doing what you enjoy, they build your strength in a balanced and meaningful way. The rehabilitation program I experienced with Dave, retaught me how to do necessary movements and exercises in the proper manner. Dave also challenged me each session to push myself toward my full potential. The name TrueFix, is perfectly suited for this business as they truly care about fixing whatever is holding you back from whatever you enjoy.

I highly recommend using Eric for your PT needs! He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to listen to your concerns. He does a great job of giving you exercises that are achievable and easy to follow at home. I was experiencing pain from plantar fasciitis and was unable to run or workout anymore. I also experience neck, shoulder, and back pain from my career. Eric did dry needling treatments, spent an hour with me once a week and emailed me a step by step schedule to do at home (even had videos of each exercise). I am back to running and working out with no pain anymore. I am so happy with my results! I will continue to follow up with him quarterly to maintain my strength.

Dr. Vargas is such a great listener and was quickly able to pin point my shoulder impingement as well as a hip joint issue which is something that I had been living with for years and it was not getting better. From the first appointment, he diagnosed and explained what was going on and how to fix it. Through physical therapy and dry needling, he tracked my progress. My shoulder and hip are not only back to normal, but my strength is better than it has been for several years. His approach is customized for each person, and his way of explaining the issue, as well as the treatment options is exactly was I was looking for. He is a positive and encouraging Dr. and coach. You can tell that he believes in his patients and wants them to excel and overcome their particular issue. He went the extra mile to also help me outline future strength goals and the best way achieve them along with an exercise plan and diet tips. I would definitely recommend Dr. Vargas to anyone that is ready to take care of those aches and pains once and for all.

I've had a great experience working with Eric at Truefix Physical Therapy. He's incredibly knowledgeable about his work and also has a patient demeanor — it's very different than most PT experiences in that you'll get to spend your whole appointment working directly with him. He works hard to explain everything he's doing so you're informed as a patient and feel empowered to work once you leave his office.I came in for some general mobility issues and he was able to target the most critical areas for improvement for me (which turned out to be my hips). I saw noticeable improvement even in a week and six weeks later, I'm moving much better — I even hit a squat PR the other day, which I attribute solely to being more stable and mobile.Highly recommend TrueFix if you need a PT in the KC area.
