Physical Therapy Career

Physical Therapists - Working conditions

Physical therapists practice in hospitals, clinics, and private offices that have specially equipped facilities, or they treat patients in hospital rooms, homes, or schools.

Most full-time physical therapists work a 40-hour week; some work evenings and weekends to fit their patientsí schedules.

About 1 in 4 physical therapists work part time.

The job can be physically demanding because therapists often have to stoop, kneel, crouch, lift, and stand for long periods. In addition, physical therapists move heavy equipment and lift patients or help them turn, stand, or walk.

Physical therapists rehabilitate persons with physical disabilities. Others who work in the rehabilitation field include audiologists, chiropractors, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, rehabilitation counselors, respiratory therapists, and speech-language pathologists.

Nearly 6 out of 10 physical therapists work in hospitals or in offices of physical therapists.

Employment is expected to increase much faster than the average, as growth in the number of individuals with disabilities or limited functioning spurs demand for therapy services.

Job opportunities should be particularly good in acute hospital, rehabilitation, and orthopedic settings.

Please note that after graduating from an accredited physical therapist educational program, therapists must pass a licensure exam before they can practice.
