About Physical Therapy

In this Section
Physical therapy is a deeply rewarding healthcare profession that improves the lives of people who have experienced a serious injury or are living with a chronic health condition.  Physical therapists diagnose and treat individuals of all ages with a variety of different health conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional tasks.  Physical therapists examine each client and develop an individualized plan of care to restore pain free movement and regain the ability to do every day functional activities. Physical therapy is consistently rated among the top 10 growing professions by a number of different agencies.  For more information on a career in physical therapy visit the American Physical Therapy Association web site.  Learn more about the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Clarkson University and how to apply.
