Physical therapists (PTs) work directly with people to enhance movement and promote optimal health and function. PTs manage pain through movement, hands-on care, and patient education. In addition, PTs collaborate with their patients/clients to prevent mobility loss and to develop fitness and wellness programs focused on healthy and active lifestyles.

Physical therapists work with all systems of the body and diagnose and treat patients of all ages. They are employed in clinical settings that include hospitals, rehabilitation centers, private practices, universities, extended care facilities, home settings, and sports medicine centers.
