Physical Therapy, A.A.
Do You Have a Passion for Physical Therapy?
When you exercise or lift weights, are you aware of your form and how to correctly move your body to avoid injury? Do you like training with others and helping them work out? Are you interested in the anatomy and physiology of the human body? If any of these are true about you, consider a career as a physical therapist.
As a physical therapist, you will work with doctors to help their patients rehabilitate after illness or injury. You can get a job in a doctor’s office or clinic, a hospital or a rehabilitation center, move anywhere you want to in the country, and not have to worry about job security. Physical therapists are needed everywhere.
With the Baby Boomer population getting older, demand for physical therapy jobs is increasing much faster than average. The number of physical therapist jobs is expected to grow by 34% through 2024.
