Physical therapists, sometimes called PTs, care for people of all ages who have functional problems resulting from back and neck injuries; sprains, strains, and fractures; arthritis; amputations; neurological disorders, such as stroke or cerebral palsy; injuries related to work and sports; and other conditions. Physical therapists use a variety of techniques to care for their patients. These techniques include exercises; training in functional movement, which may include the use of equipment such as canes, crutches, wheelchairs, and walkers; and special movements of joints, muscles, and other soft tissue to improve mobility and decrease pain.
As a Physical therapist, you typically do the following:
You will review patients’ medical history and referrals or notes from doctors, surgeons, or other healthcare workers
You will diagnose patients’ functions and movements by observing them stand or walk and by listening to their concerns
Your role develops individualized plans of care for patients, outlining the patients’ goals and the expected outcomes of the plans
You will use exercises, stretching maneuvers, hands-on therapy, and equipment to ease patients’ pain, help them increase their mobility, prevent further pain or injury, and facilitate health and wellness
Your role evaluates and record a patients’ progress, modifying the plan of care and trying new treatments as needed
You educate patients and their families about what to expect from the recovery process and how to cope with challenges throughout the process
