How to Hire a Specialty Trained Physical Therapist

We’re going to talk about a question I get all the time. Here is the first part: “Do you have any advice on the best way to find a therapist to bring in to help with caseload so I can focus more on marketing and bringing in more clients? I’m a John Barnes myofacial release trained therapist in women’s pelvic health.”

You probably are not going to hire another similarly trained therapist because most of them already have their own businesses. Instead, hire for personality. Write a job description that explains your treatment approach and you will attract people with a similar mindset. Hire someone who is willing to grow and you can mentor them and send them to courses.

The second part of this question was, “I don’t think I could start anyone off with a full-time offer so I’m not sure about how to go looking for someone if there isn’t a local therapist to fit the bill.”

Let’s reframe this part of the question. How do you start someone off with a full-time offer? Let’s say you see 20 to 30 patients a week and finding you don’t have time to market and grow your business. But you’re also afraid to hire someone full time and not have enough patients for them. 

They key here is to put as many people as you can over to your new therapist’s schedule. Your schedule should not be full first if you are the business owner. Fill your employee’s schedule first and you take the overflow because your time is more valuable for growing the business and selling plans of care. You’re buying back your time to grow your business and do the marketing.
