What is Pre-Physical Therapy
Physical therapists, along with physical therapist assistants and aides, help persons with injuries or illness improve their movement and manage their pain. These therapists are often an important part of rehabilitation and treatment for patients with chronic conditions or injuries.
Important traits for students in this program include having an intellectual curiosity, the ability to adapt to situations, self-drive and compassion.
