I was wondering if anyone has developed a relationship with a physician, physical therapist, chiropractor, nutritionist, etc to receive direct referrals for clients? It seems line the logical next step for people who are being told they need to get into better physical shape by leading a more healthy lifestyle.
I have often worked with these professionals, as well as osteopathic physicians and PTs, as a follow-up source for training program development, as well as a source for referral to them when a client can hopefully benefit from their expertise and scope of practice. Just sure that you adhere to the specific limitations and recommendations you discuss with the provider(s) regarding follow-up training. Experience, educational background, specific certification(s) and continuing education are important factors in the development of a network of potential referrals. So, be patient.
