    What Independent PT Practices Can Learn from POPTs

    Physician-owned physical therapy practices (POPTs) get a bad rap in the private practice world. After all, many independent PTs blame them for dwindling referrals and revenues.

    The Biggest Budget Mistake in All of Rehab Therapy

    WebPT recently completed its annual state of rehab therapy survey , and we found some really interesting trends: some positive—and some, well, less-than positive. For starters, as WebPT President Heidi Jannenga wrote here , “the data showing the distribution of men and women in leadership roles appears to be evening out, which means more women are stepping up to take on bigger professional challenges.” That’s a good thing. Unfortunately, though, we also found that the majority of …
