According to a recent article from PT in Motion News, patients who attend physical therapy at a privately-owned clinic, such as Life Fitness Physical Therapy in Columbia, find themselves paying less for their therapy than those patients at hospital outpatient departments. While the exact reasoning behind the discrepancy is more or less up for debate, anywhere from a 40% to a 60% higher charge was noted for physical therapy treatments performed at hospital-affiliated facilities. The study was published by the National Institute for Health Care Reform; one of their goals is to determine these kinds of differences between public and private health care.
The value of a privately-owned physical therapy clinic extends beyond the price of treatment, however. While affordability is always a concern when it comes to receiving good health care, there are many more priorities in consideration. At Life Fitness Physical Therapy, we direct all of our focus towards high quality patient care. Our goal is not only to heal or treat whatever physical injury or issue our patients have, but to genuinely improve their quality of life by giving them exercises and practices that they can use well into the future to maintain their health and wellness.
