FAQ

What is a Treatment With Butheau Physiotherapy Like?

What we have to offer you is different from physical therapy treatments available in a typical PT clinic.
We believe our patients deserve our full attention over the course of their treatment and we want them leaving their appointment feeling they received the best care and service possible,  in an environment where understanding and education can happen optimally.
During my treatments, both the patient and therapist are given the appropriate amount of time to problem solve and work together.  Butheau Physiotherapy does not use aide nor assistant. EVERY treatment is with a skilled physical therapist. In a familiar and convenient environment.

Our main goal is to have you moving better, with less pain ,in fewer treatments… While empowering you with the knowledge needed to prevent your problem from coming back. 

Do I Need to See My Physician Before Treatment? Do I Need a Prescription?

Washington is a direct access state for physical therapy: this means you are free to choose a physical therapist of your choice and be treated without a physician referral (with most insurance), unless you are a Medicare beneficiary or an injured worker using an L&I claim.  
If you will require further medical evaluation or diagnostic testing during the course of your care with us, we will be glad to assist you in finding the right medical professional.

Where Is Butheau Physiotherapy Located?

We treat our patients at our clinic in White Center, conveniently located on edge of West Seattle and Burien, a 15 minutes drive from downtown Seattle and Seatac International Airport.

We serve the greater Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma and Everett area as the only independent facial therapist specialist.

We offer convenient hours with early and later appointments Monday through Friday, by appointment only.

What Do I Need to Wear During Therapy?

During treatment, we recommend wearing comfortable clothes.  Loose clothes help expose the treated area,  like a cut off shirt or sports bra for shoulder, ribs, neck problems or shorts for lower back, hip, knee and ankle problems. For facial palsy, low collar shirts to expose the neck.

Do I Need an X-ray, Mri, Cat-scan or Other Imaging or Studies Before Working With You?

NO. Imaging studies are not required before any appointment with us. We might recommend one before continuing care ( for example, if we suspect a fracture or other serious pathology) and we will refer you to the right person. If you do already had imaging done, feel free to have these reports ready for your appointment and we will review the findings with you.

Do You Take My Insurance? What Are Your Rates?
