Career Opportunities

Physical therapists are in high demand and play a key role in helping patients gain mobility and strength after surgery or accident trauma. The future for physical therapists is very bright. With people living longer, joint replacement surgery has become very common and with it the need for compassionate and well-trained physical therapists.
