Continuing my 2 episode arc on Cash-Based Oncology PT, today’s episode is my interview with Megan Bradley, PT, DPT, CLT-LANA. Megan is one of the founding members of Be Strong Therapy, a cash-based, multi-disciplinary clinic that is challenging the way we traditionally care for patients with cancer. She discusses the inspiration for Be Strong Therapy, how she & her partners got their practice up & running, & the challenges & successes they’ve encountered along the way.
(If you missed last week’s interview with Cash-Based Concierge PT Lisa Sylvestri, you can find it here.)
Megan Bradley, PT, DPT, CLT-LANA is a physical therapist who earned a bachelors of science degree in Health Sciences in 2008 and a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2010 from Nazareth College in Rochester, NY. She became a certified lymphedema therapist in 2011 through Klose Training. Since becoming a physical therapist, Megan has worked in a variety of settings, including a level one trauma hospital in Columbus, OH. Since moving to the Tallahassee area with her husband in 2016, Megan has focused her practice on the lymphedema and cancer population. She has since specialized in oncology rehab and opened a private practice with two other therapists in order to better serve her patients.
