What does a physical therapist do?

A physical therapist is someone who requires you to visit them or go to their place to treat a medical condition or to restore a medical condition to normal (or as close to normal as possible). Physical therapists require a patient to attend multiple sessions to get 100% recovery.

Are physical therapists doctors?

Physical therapists are a vital part of the healthcare community and are invaluable in helping patients restore physical function, improve mobility, and manage physical pain. Although physical therapists lack formal medical training that physicians receive, physical therapists do provide medical care as they identify physical dysfunctions and work on treating them. Physical therapists have advanced knowledge of primary contact care, evidence-based practice, pharmacology, patient management, public health, physical rehabilitation and education. As such, physical therapists provide collaborative care with other doctors in order to provide comprehensive treatment of disorders or injuries. Therefore while physical therapists are not formally considered physicians they certainly play an important role when it comes to providing quality health services.

How much does a physical therapist make an hour?

A physical therapist's salary depends on many factors, including the location they work in, and the type of physical therapy they specialize in. Generally speaking, physical therapists make between $20 and $40 an hour based on their experience level and expertise. Those who choose to work in areas with a higher cost of living may be paid slightly more than those who work in areas with a lower cost of living.

Ultimately, physical therapists have the potential to earn good wages depending on various circumstances.
