Pt Physical therapists are movement specialists; they help us to function without pain.
Full-time or part-time job ads in this field remain high especially in Chicago, Illinois due to the city boasting a long life expectancy. People often confuse the job title of a physical therapist with that of an occupational therapist.
Both roles are similar but an occupational therapist relieves pain incurred when carrying out everyday tasks at home or within a company or organisation. Occupational therapy and physical therapy fall under the umbrella term; therapy services when keyed into search terms.
The job of a physical therapist is to improve the quality of life through tailored exercises, patient education and hands-on care in healthcare settings such as sports centres, nursing homes, schools and hospitals. Therapists treat a wide range of symptoms including pain from an accident through to pelvic floor rehabilitation.
Working directly with each patient means that the virtual world cannot replace a pair of healing hands and as such, work remains secure. Each day is rewarding as no two patients are ever the same. This keeps the brain constantly stimulated and encourages creative and problem-solving skills.
An excellent salary is as a reward for all that hard work. In Chicago, Illinois the average salary is $94,500; this can vary according to job type and experience.
After leaving school, students work towards a Batchelor degree in a health-related subject. This is followed by a three-year doctorate in physical therapy (DPT).
A physical therapist cannot legally perform duties without a licence to practice, this is awarded upon completion of the National Physical Therapy Examination by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy according to the state in the USA that the therapist chooses to work.
Then it is time to reap the rewards for all that knowledge and training by securing a post. Chicago public schools prepare students for college life but students from all educational backgrounds achieve successful careers in this field.
