Gina’s Answer

You can do all kinds of things:
1) physical therapist (they can work in an outpatient clinic or in the hospital)
2) occupational therapist (same, work in a clinic or in the hospital)
3) physiatrist, which is a doctor (you will need to go to medical school) these are phsyical rehab doctors. They also have other types of doctors that are related to physical health.
4) physical trainer (sports, gym, etc).
But I am assuming you mean specific to physical health like exersice, movement, etc. There are other aspects to your health such as a dietician, family practice doctor, orthopedists, etc.

You are curious about physical health jobs....

Well, this industry is booming....mainly because people don't know and are not taught how to take care of themselves properly. So, there are lots of body issues that need to be addressed. Here is a good list of physical health jobs that might interest you...

- Exercise Physiologist - using exercise and physical tests to help your clients (36k/year)
- Physical Therapy Consultant - consult with big companies on software and machinery (68k/year)
- Orthopedic Physical Therapist - working with the musculoskeletal systems of your clients (80k/year)
- Pediatric Physical Therapist - works with kids (82k/year)
- Occupational Therapist - helping patients with mobility (82k/year)
- Expert Advisor on Health - typically a nurse (hourly wage $40-$150)
- Outpatient Therapist - helps clients regain physical health (70-100k/year)

These are just a few I found while researching this industry. But there are many more to check out. I suggest talking with people who do these jobs in your area to see if you like what they do day to day. See if they are happy in their field. Ask them what they like and dislike about their careers. And ask yourself why you are interested in this path and what you will love or not love about it.

Good luck!
Angie
