Physical Therapy

Improve health and well-being

Physical therapists help restore or improve mobility, relieve pain, prevent or limit disability and promote overall fitness and health. They are essential to the rehabilitation of people with head or spinal injuries, congenital conditions, arthritis, and neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. PT is an excellent profession for students who are good problem-solvers, interested in health and science, and want to help people achieve their best.
