The CashPT Lunch Hour #3: Interview with Erson Religioso

The CashPT Lunch Hour #3 with Erson Religioso III DPT FAAOMPT the "Cash-Based" Manual Therapist.

I’m super excited to share my recent interview with Dr. E, Erson Religioso III DPT, FAAOMPT of the blog The Manual Therapist 

Erson is not only a cash based physical therapist, he educates therapists on how to be better clinicians and how to incorporate instrument assisted manual therapist in their practice. He is also a genius when it comes to utilizing technology to create low overhead solutions for a physical therapy cash practice. We had a great conversation, he definitely dropped some knowledge bombs and I felt like I could keep talking to him all day, but had to cut it off somewhere. There is so much more to talk about and Erson is a multifaceted physical therapist and entrepreneur. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did!.

In this interview Erson talks about:
How he got started as a physical therapist, private practice and as an educator.
The "Associates Model" of Private Practice
Why he decided to transition into cash-based physical therapy.
How his alternative source of income allowed him to transition to cash-based with minimal risk.
His Cash-Based model sub-leasing in a local gym.

Telehealth with patients and "teaching people how to fish."
Technology Erson uses to help his business.

Alternative models of practice.
