What is the difference between being an Athletic/Sports Therapist and regular Physical Therapist?
I’ve been looking at Physical Therapy, but recently I was told Athletic Therapy might be a better fit for me. One of the reasons was being that PT simply worked with senior citizens more and AT works with adults or maybe younger. I just know I would prefer to work with teenagers, maybe young adults, or even children. I love the basic stretches, work outs, kinesthetic tapes, etc. Which one would you recommend for me? #Spring23
What degree do I need to become I physical therapist, and hopefully to own my own practice?
