Physical therapists work in a wide variety of settings: hospitals, rehabilitation centers, long-term care facilities, acute care facilities, private practice, school systems, industry, sports medicine, home health, and more.
Factors such as an aging population and improved management of chronic conditions have created an increasing need for physical therapists. National and local projections indicate a continued growth in physical therapy jobs through at least 2018.
