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.

There are many careers available with a physical therapy degree. See some of the PT career pathways here >>>
