Why Cash-Based Physical Therapy?

The concept of cash-based physical therapy is to:

  • AVOID unnecessary co-pays
  • DELETE the chronic cycle of being “passed on” from unnecessary referrals to physicians
  • PROMOTE high-valued expectations through 1-on-1 care in an unlimited time frame
  • PREVENT physical therapy visit limitations to improve the care one may need
  • 1-ON-1 DIRECT CARE with one therapist during each session

Old Approach

Average Cost: $2,200

1. Initial meeting with physician

2. Patient might be referred to a specialist

3. Diagnostics performed (such as MRI/CT scans)

4. Patient follows up with initial physician again

5. Physical therapy referral

New Approach

Average Cost: $900

1. Immediate direct access to a physical therapist without a physician referral

2. Patients with complications may require referral to specialist for further testing/treatment
