Significant Information: Physical Therapists




  • Employment is expected to increase much faster than the average, as growth in the number of individuals with disabilities or limited functioning spurs demand for therapy services.
  • Job opportunities should be particularly good in acute hospital, rehabilitation, and orthopedic settings.
  • After graduating from an accredited physical therapist educational program, therapists must pass a licensure exam before they can practice.
  • Nearly 6 out of 10 physical therapists work in hospitals or in offices of physical therapists.
