The demand for physiotherapy is only expected to increase in coming years. The World Health Organization estimates that the global geriatric population will hit nearly 2 billion by 2050 — a population often plagued by arthritis, chronic pain, and cardiovascular diseases. Elderly people often benefit from physiotherapy services to manage their pain, so this growing population will require a growing physiotherapy industry to support it.
A major trend in physiotherapy is aquatic therapy, which allows patients who struggle with weight bearing and low pain tolerance to ease their way into therapy. The integration of aquatic therapy and other innovations in physiotherapy will continue to push the boundaries of how physical therapists can best provide for their patients’ needs.
All these changes leave less time for physical therapists to deal with the intricacies of physiotherapy billing and coding. You might find yourself spending more time studying physiotherapy billing codes than seeing patients — and even then, you might be leaving money on the table when you use the wrong codes.
