Physical therapy considered among ‘The 10 Best Jobs’0
The availability of work, the competitive salary, the different environments where one can work and the job satisfaction are some of the reasons for physical therapy to be placed in the top ten best jobs in 2012. The job remains challenging as specialists are required to have a profound understanding of athletes, accident victims, those with lower back or chronic pain such is evidenced at physical therapy Freehold New Jersey.
Physical therapy is placed at number eight in the list, which considers job prospects, which are at present healthy due in part to the aging baby boomers, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting that physical therapist employment will increase by 39% between 2010 and 2020. With competitive wages due to the advanced study required to become a physical therapist, and the requirement of a doctorate of physical therapy is prevalent in some States.
The role of a physical therapist can prove challenging, however, the opportunities to assist those who need it most in finding comfort or mobility can provide job satisfaction unlike many other careers. While therapists are required to have more than just academic skills as patient interaction and dialogue is a crucial part of the job particularly seen in physical therapy Manalapan New Jersey.
‘The 10 Best Jobs’ list compiled by USNews is dominated by therapy or care work roles, effectively turning the adage my University lecturer used to tell us on its head: “Those who lift rubbish get paid more than those who lift people (care workers)”. The increasing benefits are duly deserved as the demand for quality physical therapists will continue to grow.
