Physical therapists plan and execute rehabilitation programs to help patients return to a higher level of physical function after an accident or surgery. They will often also help to manage or lessen the pain experienced by someone stricken with a degenerative condition or terminal disease. Physical therapists help patients through a combination of physical activity, reflexology, massage and muscular and skeletal manipulation.
With an aging population the job outlook for physical therapists looks strong. So how do you become a physical therapist? Most have pursued a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree and all have obtained a state issued license to practice. Like many other professional licenses, a license to practice physical therapy usually requires continued education in the field to maintain certification.
We are looking for an experienced Physical Therapist to join our patient rehabilitation team and provide therapy and rehabilitations services to patients in our physical therapy facility. The ideal candidate is a compassionate healer who is passionate about their patients and committed to helping them recover their independence and mobility. We’re looking for someone with experience working with a wide range of patient injuries and age groups, who is always ready to learn new techniques to further patient care.

They will be responsible for coordinating with any healthcare professionals that are working with their patients and referring patients to specialists when appropriate.
