What doors can physical therapy open?
Physical therapy is a great career. Don’t believe me? Pull up pretty much any top jobs survey or list and ill be surprised if you get to double digits before seeing physical therapy on that list. However, what if you are an entrepreneur and want to move beyond treating patients in the clinic? Does physical therapy allow for a launching pad into entrepreneurial success? I think so, as I’ve done it and live it. I’m not the only one! Our guest on this episode of Therapy Insiders, Greg Todd, agrees as well. Greg shares his story and insight of starting out as a clinician then small business owner and now an entrepreneur.
