Physical Therapy is NOT this!

physical therapy is not this

   Physical therapy is not…

…leaving a patent alone in a room with a bell.  You can’t just put a patient on a bike, or an a table with a hot pack and expect them to find value in what you offer. 

Physical therapy is critical decision making around a musculoskeletal problem. We problem solve together around the pain you’re experiencing. And then we make a plan to get better.

I didn’t spend three years of my life in PT school to get paid $35/hour to count reps. 

Physical therapy is not a modality itself. It’s a decision making process. We have a unique ability to spend time with our patients and talk about what’s actually happening.

In a Cash-Based practice, I’m not trying to figure out how to get more money out of the insurance company. We’re transparent in our pricing and tell the patients exactly what they can expect. 

Physical therapy is not just a list pf exercises. If you can look it up on YouTube or Instagram, why would you bother going to see a physical therapist? 

Physical therapy is not just manual therapy.  You have to be able to distinguish yourself from a massage therapist. We have more capabilities at our disposal, but if we aren’t using them, is it actually physical therapy?

I hear about so many PTs that are disillusioned. They’re coming out of PT school thinking they  will get a job where they can treat patients, they won’t get burned out, and they can make a good living while paying off their student debt. 

If you’re a doctor of physical therapy and you’re just taking orders from a surgeon or physician, then you’re basically just a tech. And that’s the feeling that leads to burnout.
