Tailoring compensation to a specific stage of your career
By Paul Martin, MPT

Ownership reflects the stake you hold in the business based on your initial contribution, whereas compensation is tied to the role you play and the time you invest in the business. As a practice owner at different stages of your career — new to practice, mid-life, or preparing for a sale — it’s important to understand how to best structure owner compensation. And remember, no advice can substitute for the expertise of an attorney and accountant — two critical members of your advisory team!

benefit outpatient physical therapy clinics as employees. To provide some
perspective for the reader, it may be helpful to know that I was involved in

obvious reasons, I won’t expand on those missions here. I have also been an
outpatient physical therapist for 14 years.

Examples like this are popping up on social media, physical therapists’ websites, and even on sponsored ads targeting patients.
