Prognosis is in for Physical Therapists
14 January 2017
Each year millions of Americans – newborns to seniors – receive physical therapy services. Physical therapists help injured or ill people improve their movement and manage their pain. Physical Therapists are often an important part of the rehabilitation, treatment, and prevention team treating patients with chronic conditions, illnesses, or injuries, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook.
The goal is to help people regain their ability to complete functional activities associated with daily living. Strong demand for physical therapy services, in part from aging baby boomers and those with chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes, will drive occupational growth in every region in Minnesota.
