HAVE YOU MET OUR SPONSOR?

We are grateful for Hands-On Diagnostics and their support of the physical therapy industry.

At Hands-On Diagnostics, we are committed to changing the way physical therapists do business. Current physical therapy models have an initial patient evaluation and a treatment plan based on that patient’s history.

The problem is that this process does not always identify the root of the problem. In fact, this outdated method can reduce effectiveness by not properly diagnosing the issue, or worse, misdiagnosis.

Our evidence-based approach is a new paradigm for physical therapy focused on an objective data-driven diagnostic approach. More informed care results in more than better outcomes for patients.

Diagnostic tests from Hands-On Diagnostics also result in revenue growth for your physical therapy practice. This additional income is often the result of much higher insurance reimbursement rates.

Physical therapists who use our diagnostic tests can enjoy reimbursement rates that are 5 to 10 times higher than a typical PT visit. It’s no wonder there are Hands-On Diagnostic private practice owners operating 130 clinics across 25 states. See why so many physical therapists trust us for the latest and best in diagnostic testing.
