    Greetings all, Happy New Year!!!
    Does anyone out there have information about having a physical therapy practice within a podiatry practice? I am having difficulties finding any relevant information.

    Hi Sabina - WELCOME to Podiatry Arena.

    I know of a few clinics that do this (this is one eg), but do not recall ever seeing any information about it!, so not surprised you can't find any.

    Hi Sabina:

    My 2 cents is that it depends on what you mean by Physical Therapy. I think it is safe to say that it is common for podiatrists to have available in the office certain PT modalities (whirlpool, US, phonophoresis, iontophoresis, fluidtherapy, etc......) I do not think this equates to a Physical Therapy practice. Certainly there are PT treatments that, if for no other reason then the time needed to carry them out, are outside the realm of podiatric medicine.

    My opinion only based only on my type of practice.

    :welcome: perhpas you need to be a little more specific?
    Do you mean a second type of practice working toegther?
    Many pods work on site with other physical therapists, so not sure if this is what you mean.
    May also be worth posting in another forum other than introductions?

    Good luck

    Thank you both for your posts. Yes, Heather I do mean a 2nd type of practice working together, At least that is the administrators wish. I think she sees it as a way to make more money but I am hesitant that the income will justify the outlay.

    I reposted your question in the biomechanics forum since I had the same question. Take a look there for more info.
