Physical Therapists help injured or ill people improve their movement and manage their pain. They are often an important part of the rehabilitation and treatment programs for patients with chronic conditions, illnesses, or injuries (Health Professions Admissions Guide, NAAHP, 2017). Physical therapists must earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree, typically a 3-year program after earning a bachelor’s degree.
