πŸ’Ό Physical Therapist

Career Description
A physical therapist is a healthcare professional who helps patients with physical injuries or disabilities regain movement and manage pain. They use their knowledge of human anatomy and manual therapy techniques to provide treatments such as therapeutic exercise, joint mobilization, and pain management techniques. Physical therapists assess patients' conditions, develop treatment plans, and monitor progress. They also educate patients on injury prevention and self-care. The demand for physical therapists is expected to grow as the aging population requires more rehabilitative care. Physical therapists often work in hospitals, clinics, or rehabilitation centers and collaborate with other healthcare professionals.
