4 marketing challenges for your physical therapy practice
PutMeBackTogether.com
What if you were told the key to physical therapy marketing was to think less like a physical therapist? Better yet, don't think like a Physical Therapist at all. We do many things well, but marketing is rarely one of them. It's kind of like having the best lemonade recipe, but failing to put a sign on the street corner (then you are just a strange kid sitting in the driveway drinking delicious lemonade). Fitness professionals, personal trainers, chiropractors, massage therapy, well-run lemonade operations, they are all better at marketing than PTs.

Survey: ICD-10 preparedness lacking
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
As the deadline for switching to ICD-10 code sets inches closer, concern is growing that neither healthcare organizations nor insurers will be ready to go live by October. A survey by KPMG, a New York-based healthcare advisory firm, found the majority of health plans and providers have allocated budgets toward ICD-10 readiness and had completed impact assessments. But most had not yet conducted testing on their systems or determined how the conversion would impact revenue cycle and cash flow.

KVUE-TV
VideoBrief Research into spinal cord injuries can include stem cells, prosthetic implants and even synthetic biology that bridges damaged areas. One Central Texas healthcare facility is offering a non-invasive clinical trial that poses very low risk to spinal cord patients. It's called the ReWalk rehabilitation system. The motor-driven, robotic device weighs 44 pounds and allows patients to walk by detecting shifts within their sense of balance and then moving their legs in a natural gait.

The role of physical therapists in the treatment and prevention of obesity
PutMeBackTogether.com
Steve Messineo writes, "More and more physical therapists are becoming doctors in physical therapy as a result of our profession's decision to go that route, I think it is important that we take a step up from what we are 'used to doing' and start treating patients as a whole instead of just addressing their injuries. Fortunately, I am not alone in this view as more and more physical therapy clinics are taking on the wellness mantra in helping their patients not only recover from injury but to also educate them about obesity and it's treatment by living a healthier lifestyle."
