Physical Therapy Schools
Physical therapists create treatment plans for patients in order to restore muscle function, relieve pain, and prevent disability following disease, injury, or loss of body parts. A physical therapy technician may aid in a therapy treatment program that may include exercise, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and massage therapy. They provide training to improve ambulation, body mechanics, posture, and athletic performance. They also instruct and motivate patients in isometric and ambulatory exercises. Listed below are colleges that offer programs in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Orthopaedic Technology.
