    The Benefits Of Creating A Specialty Practice With Susan Halbig, PT And Karen Pettine, PT Of ABQ Scoliosis And Spine Therapy

    It's wonderful to highlight a couple of PT owners who are not only past coaching clients but also young mothers who gathered the courage to partner up and create their own PT practice. Susan Halbig, PT, DPT and Karen Pettine, PT, DPT of ABQ Scoliosis and Spine Therapy in Albuquerque, NM found themselves as new mothers with a common desire to open up their own PT clinic. Not only have they been successful since then, they have provided specialized care to do so. Rather than a "take any and all patients" approach, they have "niched down" to see the exact patients they want to see and have expanded quickly because of it.
