Physical Therapist Job Description

A physical therapist, or PT, will work directly with patients who suffer from a lack of mobility or chronic pain. They use several techniques to aid their patients, like massages, specialized stretching exercises in daily therapy, and even more sophisticated interventions like electrical stimulation, ice/heat, ultrasound, and others.

People are typically referred to physical therapists after an injury has been treated by physicians or after surgery. A PT will develop a pain management and treatment plan specifically designed for the patient, taking into consideration their needs both at home and in any therapy center.

  • Stating goals clearly for the patient.
  • Implementing exercises, using equipment, and other therapy techniques to manage pain, improve mobility, and prevent worsening conditions for the patients.

Physical Therapist Career Benefits

Being a physical therapist can open a huge amount of opportunities due to the industries that depend heavily on them. A PT can choose to continue their education through a clinical residency or fellowship program and specialize more in several areas. The range of patients a physical therapist can work on is wide. A PT can be involved extensively in sports medicine, most of the time on athletes with a sports-related injury, or they can focus on seniors hoping to regain functional mobility or treat chronic pain. Many PTs elect to be leaders in their fields by opening a private practice. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that physical therapists’ jobs have been growing at an 18% pace annually, faster than the average profession.
