In brief: Location of service
Inpatient physcial therapy is done when the patient is kept overnight in a hospital or rehabilitation facility and typically with other therapies will add up to 3 hours of therapy a day.
Outpatient physcial therapy is when the patient is at home and travels to the facility for therapy, usually about 30-60 minutes of treamtment.
