Physical Therapy: A Cost-Efficient Healthcare Option

Did you know physical therapy, when used as a first-line of defense, is a more affordable healthcare option than injections or surgery? According to a 2017 study by the Alliance for Physical Therapy Quality and Innovation (APTQI), patients experiencing low back pain were observed incurring lower healthcare costs when physical therapy was used as an initial intervention as opposed to injections or surgery.

Moreover, the study expands on the importance of beginning treatment within 15 days of onset of pain or injury, as recovery time and healthcare costs are significantly decreased with early intervention.
