    Founder Letter: Culture, Compensation, and Career: The Elements of a Competitive PT Hiring Package

    There’s never been a better time to be a physical therapist: there’s a large population of aging—yet active—baby boomers, direct access is now the law of the land in all 50 states, and the healthcare system at large is moving toward a value-based care paradigm that prioritizes the delivery of safe, cost-effective treatment. At the same time, this year’s class of new PT graduates is on pace to be larger than ever, with as many as 10,600 …

    Don’t Be Cruel: 8 Reasons You’re Losing Patients

    If your baby leaves you, The King suggests a place to dwell: the Heartbreak Hotel. But whether or not a patient intends to be cruel, if he or she leaves you , it doesn’t just break your heart—you also lose a shocking amount of revenue . And as we mentioned in this post , 20% of patients drop out of therapy after the third visit, and 70% fail to complete their full course of care. Talk about …

    Founder Letter: Top 4 Trends for PTs, OTs, and SLPs in 2018

    It’s become an annual tradition of mine to look ahead to the new year and forecast the trends that are most likely to impact the rehab therapy industry. While I don’t have a crystal ball—what would be the fun in that?—I’ve gotten pretty good at predicting what’s on our horizon. (You can check out my 2017 post here and my 2016 one here .) There’s nothing on my list for this year that should come as a …

    Spooky, Scary, or Just Plain Fun: Halloween Traditions Across Our Community

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved Halloween. Sure, I’ve been a cat more times than I can count—not the most original or frightening costume, to be certain—but there’s just something exhilarating about donning a mask (or face makeup in my case) and exploring the things that go bump in the night. After all, the ancient Celts—who celebrated Samhain, what The History Channel credits as the “ancient origins of Halloween”—believed that on October 31, “the …

    Giving Back: How Therapists Across America are Celebrating PT Day of Service 2017

    They say inspiration happens when you break out of your comfort zone. You’ve likely heard a variation of this adage at some point—and perhaps even found truth in it yourself. For Efosa Guobadia, DPT, the founder of PT Haven , inspiration struck as he gazed upon the winding Amazon River in a remote region of Peru. At the time, the Atlanta-based physical therapist was providing volunteer PT services to the local population when he suddenly had a …

    Second That Emotion: How Emotional Intelligence Creates Loyal Patients

    If you’re a fan of “The Office,” you’re undoubtedly familiar with Michael Scott’s cringe-inducing behavior. While his awkward, emotional outbursts make for great comedy, if you had to work with someone like Michael, you probably wouldn’t stick around very long. And if that person were a rehab therapist, his or her patients probably wouldn’t stick around very long, either. That’s because—as funny as Steve Carell's iconic character is—Michael is impetuous and emotional (and not in a good …

    Founder Letter: In Their Shoes: How Our Patients Define Value

    You’ve undoubtedly heard this sage piece of advice before: other people’s opinions of you seldom matter. But, as a physical therapist, I have to take that bit of wisdom with a grain of salt, because when it comes to your patients’ opinion, making a positive impression is crucial. The patient experience is a subject that’s near and dear to my heart—and if you’re a rehab therapist, I’m betting you feel the same way. In fact, I firmly …

    7 Fun Ideas for Your Next Patient Appreciation Event

    No matter how you spin it, your practice wouldn’t exist without your patients. Each time an individual returns to your care, he or she demonstrates appreciation for the service you provide. So, how do you demonstrate your appreciation for them? Some folks might shy away from the prospect of coordinating a big bash, but you don’t have to invest a whole lot of time—or a whole lot of money, for that matter—into organizing a patient appreciation event. …
