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 >>>
Exercise is Medicine (EIM) is a new Registered Student Organization on campus that is aspiring to provide a solution to one of the greatest public health problems of the 21st century. Physical activity is integral in the prevention and treatment of diseases. Therefore, our mission is to promote exercise and healthy behaviors as an alternative for medicine on the campus of A-State. The vision of EIM is to provide and assess the university’s physical activity level, counsel and assist individuals in meeting U.S. National Physical Activity Guidelines, connect inter-disciplinary programs, and simply make movement a part of the daily campus culture. For more information, contact Dr. Shawn Drake (firstname.lastname@example.org). This organization is open to all majors.
