EP 103: Clinical Decision Making & Patient Care Skills with The Rehab Scientist Tom Walters

Most physical therapists are practicing in the traditional clinic-based environment and sometimes that atmosphere can burn you out. Many are scared to transition to cash-based practice due to different possible factors. Today, Aaron and Tom Walters demystify the most common challenges in practicing cash-based physical therapy. Tom shares his journey from being another clinic-based therapist to becoming a rehab scientist. If you’re considering cash-based PT, tune in to find out why you need to take that leap of faith!

You hear people sometimes say that if your profession or vocation burns you out that you’re in the wrong thing, I just don’t think that’s always true.
