Hi there , I am an OT and I suggest that you look at Advance , and select salary estimate . It will tell you salaries per state of each of the fields you are looking at . Salary really depends on where you practice , eg: private practice to a salaried position. Each area of the field has different salary structures and they vary bu years of experience , and location. PT goes to a doctoral program for all by 2020, OT 2027, so if you select either field you need to obtain that doctoral degree to make you competitive , and able to practice. With that comes cost of degree vs income after , etc. Where I work , OT's and PT's we make the same for same years of experience , and the salary is based on masters, masters plus 30 or Phd/Doctoral degree. Good luck , if it is your passion ...it will be good .
