Each October as we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month, we reflect on the power of PT in the lives of patients and practitioners alike.
Physical therapy continues to be one of the fastest-growing occupations in the country, with more than 15,000 openings projected each year for the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
While the promising job outlook in the field may play a part, the inspiration to become a physical therapist tends to be more personal. As a career, physical therapy offers an ongoing opportunity to have a meaningful impact on people’s lives. Whether their pursuit of physical therapy was prompted by personal experience, a passion for patient care, the practicality of an in-demand job or all these things combined, our PTs take pride in making a tangible difference in people’s lives every day.
In their own words, here are some of the PTs at Therapeutic Associates sharing why they chose physical therapy as a career.
