Meet Charlotte Anderson, physiotherapist and owner of ALPHA Health.
In just 3 short years Charlotte has built a team of multidisciplinary experts and ALPHA is set to soar to even greater heights in the next 12 months to come. Not only has Charlotte been busy building a business, she has also been undergoing a PhD in physiotherapy.
As a registered physiotherapist and clinic owner of Alpha Health in Toronto, I treat a variety of patients (sports, wcb, mva, private) and believe in offering complete care at my own practice. Offering “complete care” includes recommending helpful advice and products that can boost your patient’s recovery.
Talking to other clinic owners I often hear their resistance to selling products - they feel pushy and they don't think it aligns with healthcare, like it's somehow unethical. I can tell you, as a clinician who actively sells product, this is the wrong way to think because you will be surprised to learn that patients appreciate product recommendations.
The truth is, patients need products to aid in their recovery. If you're not being their most trusted health advisor by making recommendations, they will just go and buy the product elsewhere - maybe even from your competitors!
So I've lined up a list of the top 30 clinic products patients really want (and need). We cover five popular product categories - pain relief, home exercise, bracing and supports, compression therapy, and pillow and lumber supports, including notable features and patient benefits of each product.
