ASU Students Treating a Small Girl

Physical Therapy is the diagnosis and treatment of individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. 

State of the art education


The A-State Department of Physical Therapy affords our students and faculty many opportunities for interdisciplinary education and research. We currently offer two degree programs, the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Associate of Applied Science for the Physical Therapy Assistant (AAS). There are many careers available with a physical therapy degree. See some of the PT career pathways here >>>
