Physical therapists usually think of their patients first, as we should. That’s what I love about our profession. All of our energy goes toward the patient’s immediate treatment and how to make them better. However, often we leave other options for self-treatment on the table. Don’t forget that many patients can treat themselves or a loved one using your detailed instructions of how to use PT products.
Generally as a profession, we do not like to “push” or sell products. We are medical martyrs to the patient’s cause and will do so for free or as low as we can. While patient care comes first, the health of our business and profession must be supported as well. In addition, if patients are going to buy products anyway, they might as well buy them from a clinic they trust. That way we have a small chance of making up for large cuts from insurance companies. We can keep our jobs, and that allows us to make enough money to contribute to our associations and lobbying groups to advance our profession and bring world peace to healthcare… At least we will be able to support the downhill struggle against overworked PTs and underpaid PT clinics.
RockTape products are some of the best to use in your clinic. Here are a few reasons why I use RockTape products:
