Trademark protection is essential for physical therapists and their practices. By effectively securing trademark rights, including a federal trademark registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, physical therapists protect one of their most valuable assets – their brand.

If you are a physical therapy professional, then you know how difficult it can be running your practice while still providing top-of-the-line services for your clients. It could be that your “brand” is the last thing on your mind. However, the key to long-term success is effective business planning and that includes recognizing and protecting your intellectual property, including your trademarks. Whether you are an established office or are just striking out on your own, every physical therapy professional should consider their “brand” and work towards protecting their trademarks.
Physical therapy services are one of the fastest-growing parts of the healthcare industry. Whether patients are getting back on their feet from a major injury or engaging in preventative care, physical therapy is usually a part of their outpatient rehabilitation plan. And there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to finding a provider. According to Harris Williams LLC, an investment banking company, no single participant has more than 5% of the market share. In addition, there are over 5,000 “live” trademark filings with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the government agency responsible for registering trademarks for “physical therapy” related services. Therefore, it is essential to recognize your intellectual property assets and protect your name, business, and any logos or slogans.
