That will depend entirely on you and where you want to practice. I just practice in a rural setting so I can have a mix of both, I primarily work with adults between the ages of 30 and 60 but will also help high school athletes or occasionally older patients that reside skilled nursing homes. There are therapists who specialize to work with children and even those who work primarily with post-partum women. As you go through your PT (or PTA) program you'll learn a little bit of everything and have the opportunity to dive deeper in the areas that interetest you most.
