Dear Physical Therapist,
First of all, THANK YOU.
Thank you for caring enough about your craft to create REAL IMPACT in this world - a world that has been left confused and broken by the lack of proper education about pain and injuries, one where over 2 million people have a substance use disorder involving prescription pain relievers over the last several years.
Hi, my name is Aaron LeBauer - founder of LeBauer Consulting and owner of LeBauer Physical Therapy, a 100% cash practice in Greensboro, NC that I started right out of PT school.
Over the last 20 years, since I graduated from massage therapy school, I’ve treated way too many patients who’ve been told you have the worst arthritis I’ve ever seen or you never squat/run/ride/again you have the knees of an 80 year old, I’m surprised you’re still walking or you’re shoulder is obliterated and more....
If that pisses you off, then join the club because...I’m on a mission to save 100 million people from unnecessary surgery and I can’t do it alone!
Fortunately for me, I’ve been able to hone my craft, business skills, and survive in the industry as a cash practice for the last 10 years - but it hasn’t always been easy.
I’ve had to find the proper business education, ensuring that I could create a successful cash-based physical therapy practice, even when all the other PT’s told me it was a bad idea, wouldn’t work or was unethical.
It was the only way I felt I could keep things simple, have the live work balance I craved...... really get results for my patients.... ...and treat them in the way I thought best, without interference from insurance companies!
You know, protect them from someone in working in a cubicle in the middle of Iowa, without a healthcare degree, who is dictating the treatment I provide them.I’ve had to fight the old school PT’s....
And yes, I almost went broke trying to get new patients :-(
