PT is a great profession, there so no doubt in that. But these insurance providers gave all rights to Physicians and other health care team members. It causes more pain for physical therapists. After your highest education(DPT) you don`t have right to prescribe treatment to Patient. Thats all because of INSURANCE PROVIDERS, these days insurance providers are monarchs in health care industry.Evey monarch they need some followers to implement their rules on public for money. Then they got these physicians. Then they took all rights from Pt and now PT is nothing after highest level of education(DPT). Thats why PT need a lot of changes in health care system, until then its waste to get highest degree. One more impotent this is You don`t get more pay and any extra rights after your PhD or dpt. other hand the Pt with bachelors degree and pt with DPT degree earn same money. Friends go and fight for your rights and get your beautiful feature back from other health care team.Only get your (PT) rights , you don`t` need nothing.
