WHAT DOYOU KNOWABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPISTS? 3 THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT PTS

Physical therapy has advanced far beyond what it once was even a few decades ago. It’s now a respected medical profession, and physical therapists can help people of all ages get back to their normal routines. However, many people still have some misconceptions about physical therapists, so here are a few facts about the medical professionals that help us get back to our daily routines and activities. THEY HOLD ADVANCED DEGREES. In order to become a fully licensed PT, you need a doctorate in physical therapy, and you need to pass a medical board exam. It wasn’t too long ago that all you needed was a bachelor’s degree. However, because the depth of knowledge and the scope of practice have expanded so much, PTs need a minimum of three more years of school on top of their bachelor’s degree to earn their doctorate. THEY CAN WORK IN MANY DIFFERENT SETTINGS. PTs can adapt their skill set to a variety of different work environments. They work in hospitals, private practices,

schools, nursing homes, and outpatient clinics, just to name a few. On top of that, PTs don’t all have the same skill set. Some of them specialize in postoperative care, others in neurologic rehabilitation, and others still in orthopedic care. With all that in mind, it’s no wonder an advanced degree is required! THEY CAN’T DO THEIR JOBS ALONE. Even with all their education and experience, PTs aren’t miracle workers. If you need physical therapy, they can tell you what you need to do, and they can guide you through the right exercises, but you have to be willing to do what they say, both in and out of the clinic. You have to trust that they know what they’re talking about and that they have your best interests in mind. They want you to heal just as much as you want you to heal. The PTs of Campus Commons Physical Therapy are some of the best in the profession. So if ever you need physical therapy, you can trust that we’ll give you the best care possible.
