Physical therapy is a people-oriented profession that combines a wide range of social, educational, and technical skills.

Physical therapists (PTs) assist those who have physical impairments due to injury, stroke, surgery, or other traumas. Physical therapy is one of the fastest growing health fields, and the demand for PTs is rising as our population ages.
